12.07.09 | Wisconsin in Words: "Beyond Bars: Rejoining Society After Prison" by Stephen C. Richards, Ph.D.

While promoting his newest book Beyond Bars: Rejoining Society After Prison, Dr. Stephen C. Richards, a Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, said all convicts deserve a second chance. Richard’s book explores the lives of Joe and Jill Convict as they leave prison and try to reintegrate into the community as ex-convicts. On December 23, 2009, Richards invited WisconsinEye to hear his speech at Redgranite Correctional Institute where he explained a felon should never let his past behaviors hinder his future.


On July 13, 2009 Dr. Richards was interviewed on NPR: Talk of the Nation and discussed his new book 'Beyond Bars'. To read the story and hear the interview please click on the following link:
