From Behind Bars To Passing The Bar

FROM BEHIND BARS TO PASSING THE BAR

Serena Nunn was nineteen years old when she was arrested in a drug bust. Her boyfriend was the dealer, but she got sixteen years behind bars. Her story doesn't end there. She was released from prison early, and she graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in the spring of 2006. Dick Gordon talks with Serena and her lawyer, Sam Sheldon, about the mandatory sentencing laws that put her in prison and the rare presidential order that got her out.

 

IMMIGRATING TO THE U.S.

Four U.S. Citizenship & Immigration buildings are being built in Florida. The lead architect for the new structures knows what it's like to pass through one of these centers because he's an immigrant himself.

Rodolfo's ideas for the new immigration center come directly from his own experiences. The new center will include play rooms for the children, an internet café, and lots of work space to keep the staff comfortable.
