Life After Murder

How can someone who murders re-enter society?

A conversation with Nancy Mullane, author of Life After Murder: Five Men in Search of Redemption.  We’ll also speak with Jesse Reed, one of the men she profiles in her book.  The California state parole board only approved parole for 10 percent of murder cases last year.  Governor Jerry Brown then approved 80% of those.  So what does it take to be released?  And how should those who have killed re-integrate in society?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.

Guests:

Nancy Mullane, freelance journalist and author of Life After Murder: Five Men in Search of Redemption.” Life After Murder: Five Men in Search of Redemption 

Jesse Reed, former resident of San Quentin State Prison and one of the subjects in Life After Murder
