Road to recovery

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.

Will he ever live a normal life again? During a seemingly unbreakable cycle of heroine addiction and larceny charges, Norville (pictured) hasn’t spent longer than one year at a time outside of the Henrico County jail system since he was 19. He’s 33 now, and this time is his time, he’s sure of it.

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.
