Prison Consultant: Conquering Indignity
How can a prison consultant help you? If you’re facing a criminal charge in federal court, you may want to consider working with a competent prison consultant. Your defense attorney will lead you through the guilt and innocence phase of the judicial proceedings. A prison consultant will help position you to serve the lowest possible sentence in the best possible environment. Equally as important, a prison consultant will help you develop a strategy to emerge successfully. Prison consultants accomplish such goals by helping you prepare for challenges that include:
- The presentence investigation (PSI)
- The residential drug abuse program (RDAP)
- Sentencing mitigation strategies
- Strategies to make the best use of time while in federal prison
At PrisonProfessor.com, visitors will find inexpensive guides as an alterative to personal prison consulting. Also, the Earning Freedom podcast on MichaelSantos.com offers free insight with daily podcasts that provide insight into living in prison. Today’s podcast includes an interview with James Anderson, the second of two podcasts of leaders within the Anti Recidivism Coalition.
James Anderson describes his journey through the criminal justice. As a child, he experienced severe trauma. His brother, an inveterate gang member and meth user, influenced him. His father beat him routinely. Before James reached his teen years, interactions with law enforcement became routine. In the eighth grade, authorities cited James for bringing a weapon to school. As a teenager he faced a life sentence when authorities charged him as an adult.
A mentor came into James’ life while he awaited the outcome of his criminal proceedings. In her love and genuine concern for his welfare, James describes how he began to work to prove worthy. He made a 100% commitment to reject the gang lifestyle and to begin preparing for a better life. At the conclusion of his criminal proceedings, a judge saw fit to limit James’ exposure to the criminal justice system to seven years. During the 3.5 years that he served, James received mentoring and support from Scott Budnick, founder of the Anti Recidivism Coalition.
Upon his release from confinement, James became the first fulltime employee of the Anti Recidivism Coalition. In that role he has traveled across the United States to speak about the injustices of mass incarceration and to speak about steps we can take to improve juvenile justice programs. He enrolled in community college. After two years of outstanding grades, he received news that UCLA accepted James and he is now UCLA bound. Upon graduation from UCLA, James anticipates a life of leadership and contribution. He aspires to prove worthy of the enormous support that he has received from so many. James lives as the change that he wants to see in the world.
If James can overcome a childhood of trauma, gang influences, and crystal meth to become a leading citizen that influences change, just think what you can do.
