Please join us as we talk with Bobby Bostic this week on Prison Pipeline. Bobby Bostic was a prisoner from the state of Missouri who was sentenced to 241 years in prison for a crime he committed as a minor. He was recently released from prison after 27 years served although he still remains on parole for 241 years. His sentence when it was given out was the highest sentence ever given to a youth for a non-capital offense. Years after the conviction the judge expressed remorse regarding the severity of the sentence. Bobby will talk about his childhood and the social conditions which shaped his growing up. Bobby will also talk about the books he wrote while he was incarcerated and what he is doing now that he is finally free.
