As part of our "In My Experience" series spotlighting the personal stories of our listeners, we talk with a panel of former prisoners about their crimes, their experience inside prison and their struggles to make it on the outside.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Beverly Henry, off-and-on prisoner from 1970-2009 for sales of heroin, prostitution and armed robbery
  • Carl Irons, former prisoner who served 24 years for second-degree murder
  • James Smith, former prisoner who served four years and eight months for assault with a deadly weapon (his hands)
  • Linda Field, former prisoner who served 19 years for killing her abusive husband

The "In My Experience" series is produced with help from the Public Insight Network.
