On April 22, WGAL-TV Reporter Matt Barcaro and his cameraman visited Philadelphia CCC #2 to film the monthly "juvenile" lifer support group and interview interested paroled individuals.

This isn't the first media access to this support group, nor do we expect it to be the last.

The monthly meetings are coordinated by Center Director Jackie Rupert, and ASCRA Adrienne Jones does a wonderful job facilitating dialogue. Together Rupert and Jones also work to provide guest speakers to kick off most of the group meetings.

WGAL-TV has been working on an in-depth segment about "juvenile" lifers. Learn more about the various legal cases that resulted in their release from prison and how the DOC worked to prepare them for release.
