Puppies Behind Bars
Prisoner / Puppy Portrait
Sidney, left, poses with Toni, an 18-month old Labrador retriever. Sidney was sentenced to 15 years for robbery. "I am in prison for thinking crime was the only alternative for success and keeping a tight grip on a destructive, nonproductive lifestyle," he says. "I've learned that I'm not as impatient as I thought I was. I've gained an option to take this skill, further my education and pursue what has given me a sense of purpose."
