Restitution and Redemption after Prison
Restitution and Redemption after Prison

Listen
AIR DATE: February 2, 2012

Perry Pearson was a 21-year-old telemarketer, when federal agents burst into his workplace and arrested everyone.  He went to prison for 2 years for telemarketing fraud, and the court ordered him to pay $500,000 in restitution.  When he left prison, almost no one wanted to hire an ex-felon.  But Perry worked his way up from a garbage collector to a business manager, and today, he's already paid off $420,000.  Perry Pearson tells us what prison taught him, how he pulled himself up by his bootstraps, and how he ultimately found redemption.
