Abstract:

Marshall Allen is just one of the hundreds of thousands of Americans who leave state or federal prisons and return to their home communities each year. He is typical of the majority of convicts in the U.S. in that he served time on a drug charge-in his case, possession of crack cocaine. He is also not unusual in the failure of his first attempt to make it on the outside. But a second term behind bars has hardened his resolve to succeed. This ABC News program illustrates the hurdles and hardships facing paroled felons through the story of one man, a nonviolent offender who, like so many others, is trying to salvage what remains of his life.
