Children in Prison: Six Profiles Before, During and After Incarceration
Jerome Gold

Almost 330,000 children in America are in prison, in a detention center, on probation or parole, or otherwise under the control of the criminal justice system. In a time of nascent prison reform, these children are often left out of the conversation.

This book chronicles the experiences of six young people in Ash Meadow in Washington State. Written from the perspective of a prison rehabilitation counselor, this book provides a firsthand account of these children’s lives during and after their stay.

These accounts show how domestic violence, inequality and poor adult-modeling influence the decisions that children make later in life.
