See how the inmates on The Path are doing after serving their time!
After serving his time behind bars, and back outside on an ankle monitor, Lighthouse Recovery Program Participant, John Fowler, is officially off monitoring, and ready to re-enter society for good! Accompanied by the help of Sheriff Ron Hain and Nate Lanthrum, of Lighthouse Recovery, John has taken immense strides in his rehabilitation, and is truly ready to become a productive member of society. Discover his inspiring story of recovery, and many more like it, on "A Prisoner's Path - Chicago" which is deep in post production right now! Congratulations John!
Sophia Cardona, one of the many members of the Lighthouse Recovery Program in Kane County Correctional Facility has officially completed work on her custom mural for the incarceration facility. Several weeks back, during principle photography on "A Prisoner's Path - Chicago," Sophie had revealed her love for the arts, and, more particularly, her passion for painting. After her involvement in the series, Sheriff Ron Hain and Nate Lanthrum, of Lighthouse Recovery, commissioned the incarcerated artist to fill out an entire, room-sized mural, with anything she could think of. Being naturally optimistic, Sophie used her talents to put a positive spin on her artwork, finding ways to incorporated such phrases as "Friendship," "Positivity," and "Happiness;" all things that Sophie, like many other prisoners, struggle to find during their time behind bars. Catch her full story, and others like it, on "A Prisoner's Path - Chicago" currently in full-scale, post-production!
While filming "A Prisoner's Path - Chicago," an inmate, incarcerated at the time, Alejandro Torres, expressed to the producers that all he wanted once he got back on the outside was a nice pair of shoes (Air Jordans, of course, his favorite!). Several weeks after production concluded, Alejandro was released from his sentence, as part of the Lighthouse Recovery Program. Much to his surprise, and delight; however, a pair of brand new shoes were on their way for him, already in the mail. Once finally settled in again on the outside, he sent Skinfly Entertainment this picture of himself, and the newest addition to his wardrobe, proving that hard work, determination, and strong will can produce incredible results, and bring people from across the country, together (and yes, of course, they are Jordans!). Congrats Alejandro!
After an incredibly tumultuous, and emotional trial process, Jeffrey Richardson, of Kane County Correctional Facility, has been officially convicted and sentenced to twenty-five years in prison, following his guilty charges for armed robbery with a firearm. The sentence, which usually carries less time in the county, was decided upon due to previous charges on Richardson's record, and his prior time spent in incarceration facilities. A twenty-five year sentence, as far as Jeffrey, and the state of Illinois, are concerned, is considered a life sentence. "A Prisoner's Path - Chicago" will follow Jeffrey Richardson's story behind bars, and his time spent during his sentence. All donations and proceeds will be partially donated to helping Richardson, his eleven children, and his case.
