This is a Special Live Program on Women Prison Inmates

This show is much different from most shows in that the entire 2 hours will be an interview with a female ex-convict. "Betty" was recently released from prison and provides us with a realistic and positive story about how prison turned her life around. Abused physically and sexually by her father, and then married to an abusive husband, she found herself giving up her children to escape the man who was threatening her with her life if she chose to fight for her kids. Demoralized, ineffectual, she turned to drugs and self-destruction. Before she knew it she was manufacturing and selling Meth and had fallen into the deepest depths of despair in her life. Broken, she surrendered to authorities, was imprisoned, and served time. In prison she expected to only learn the dark side of human existence but professional prison authorities, excellent programming, and a professionally managed corrections environment turned her around. She was released and is now a productive and positive member of society, struggling to rebuild her life in lieu of the history she is healing from. Hers is a story of dope, hope, of new found love for oneself, of prison programming, and of what we would like to see happen to all inmates as they find a way to reinvent themselves through the corrections process!
