Second Chances
Produced by: Sandra Sleight-Brennan
Juvenile crime is plaguing America, from its inner cities to its rural counties. While experts nationwide debate the multitude of possible socio-political reasons for this increase in youth crime, some dedicated professionals are making bold new strides toward a solution. In Ohio, young offenders are participating in creative writing programs to teach them the value of self-expression and noncombative conflict resolution. Producer Sandra Sleight-Brennan reports on the educational program that sets out to offer juveniles a second chance.
