(ABC 6 News)-- Concerns for safety of our prison guards in the past year prompted ABC 6 News to look into what is going on within Minnesota's prison system and what still needs to be done to ensure the safety of all parties within prisons.
Tuesday was the second day of a four-day series that goes in-depth on crime, punishment, and rehabilitation.
Matthew Stewart, an inmate, told his story of preparing for his future after prison. Employees including the Warden, Kathy Halvorson, spoke on the current programs to ensure a safe environment that allows inmates to grow and reform.
Instructor Jeff Sartor and Director of Education in the MN Department of Corrections Marcie Koetke joined in the conversation of rehabilitation.
