Originally aired: Monday, September 17, 2018
John J. Lennon has carved out a career as a journalist while locked up in New York's Sing Sing Correctional Facility while serving time for murder. His writing often profiles inmates whose cases resonate with larger issues in society -- our last discussion centered on Andrew Golstein, a schizophrenic convicted of pushing a woman in front of a subway train. Now, we delve into John's latest piece, co-authored by Bill Keller of the Marshall Project which parses the impacts of Kendra's Law, Assisted Outpatient Treatment, and what will happen with Goldstein upon his release from prison.
