Program helps citizens experience offenders’ re-entry process

Jerit Norville sits at a gray table in a gray room, ready to talk about his past. His face is tough yet friendly and tells the story of a young man trapped in a despicable place trying desperately to get out. Exhaustion defines his demeanor, stemming from both a long day at work and a 14-year ride of small, temporary ups and deep, lasting downs.

He’s scheduled to restart his life in July. He’s currently on work release, spending five days a week as a pilot repairman for CHEP recycling. > Read more.
