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.
