They mentored younger inmates, worked with the Youth Assistance Program, and later created the Prison Community Awareness Program, mentoring 16-21 who were also serving life sentences. In 2017, Darryl and Darnell were given parole after only serving the minimum sentence. Today, Darnell is a full-time student at Cornell University, and Darryl is working in the Justice-in-Education program at Columbia.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
