North Carolina has the nation’s second fastest growing prison population. Prison construction puts a stress on state budgets and incarcerating prisoners is an expensive endeavor. Enter Scott Silverman, who for almost two decades has successfully helped to keep former convicts from a cycle of prison terms. His San Diego based organization Second Chance has helped reform thousands of California’s prisoners. He’s in Charlotte for a series of consultations and he sits down with us to talk about how to reduce North Carolina’s prison problem.
