Pri-Zen: Lessons from Lockup with Jesse Crosson

Courteney Stuart and Jesse Crosson

What does it mean to be rehabilitated, and how can the criminal justice system be improved to promote public safety and genuine rehabilitation for offenders? Those are questions Jesse Crosson has spent nearly two decades contemplating and putting into practice as he serves a 32-year active sentence in the Virginia Department of Corrections for crimes committed just after his 18th birthday. In the Pri-Zen podcast, Crosson explores with veteran journalist Courteney Stuart the state of the criminal justice system in Virginia, criminal justice reform and related topics from mental health and addiction to violence and grief.
