Former SCDOC director says hope comes first, rehabilitation second

LEE COUNTY, SC (WIS) -"The former director of the South Carolina Department of Corrections said that without giving inmates serving life sentences hope for release, rehabilitation can’t always be achieved.

Jon Ozmint served as director of the Department of Corrections from 2003 until 2011 and said while programs are available to inmates, many serving life sentences have no incentive to take part.

“Why would any of these programs matter to them? If they have no hope, what is the incentive to take part in any kind of rehabilitation?,” Ozmint said."
