It is said that 85% of ex-cons re-enter prison at some point in their lives, don't be a statistic! Stay out!

I've managed to stay out since 2009, I beat the odds.

Congrats it's a great accomplishment. My husband was out for six years. But mistakes happen.

Congrats on staying on the streets! It definitely isn't always easy.
I've been out since 2001.
