Many offenders who enter our system are under the belief that they are a failure, that they are not capable of change due to their past... 

Through a Convict’s Eyes: An Overlooked View of the Criminal Justice System provides a unique perspective of the current dynamic criminal justice system by fusing the thoughts of a federal probation officer/administrator and a convicted felon.

In the criminal justice system we have overlooked, in the author’s opinion, the perspective of the individual who has made mistakes and been involved in our criminal justice process. The author believes that society to a large extent has not given credit to what we can learn from those who have committed a crime and gone through the system.

Through a Convict’s Eyes: An Overlooked View of the Criminal Justice System

  • Utilizes the belief that even though there will always be a need for prisons to house inmates who have committed serious crimes or refuse to change their behavior, offenders have the potential to become productive members of society with our help and with their own personal belief that they can change.
  • Encourages the reader to look outside the box at innovative practices to assist offenders in giving up a life of crime by being accountable to society and to their victims, as well as feeling confident that society and the system have not given up on them.
  • Engages the reader by providing the perspective of a convict. Students are attracted to Eric because of his honesty and his willingness to accept full responsibility for his actions.
