Kindra Simpson was sentenced to prison in West Virginia for felony offenses in 2012.
In this video, she talks about how her time in jail affected her re-entry into her community.
Simpson spent half of her prison sentence in Tygart Valley Regional Jail before being transferred to Lakin Correctional Center. The jail system had neither Residential Substance Abuse Treatment programs nor a trade development program in which she could participate.
