My Dad’s Prison Release Changed My Views for This Election
After 27 years, Kharon Benson’s father was released from prison after a frustrating and complicated parole process. Now, ahead of the election, Kharon investigates some of the flaws in the criminal justice system and what the candidates will do about it if they win.
