When an inmate is released from prison statistics show that there is a 75% chance they will be arrested again in the next 5 years.

 

Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettlekamp wants to do everything in his power to lower this statistic. Recently he had a guest speaker come to the Christian County Jail to speak with the inmates in hopes it would be a wake up call. Lynord Joiner has been a success story out of prison and has even gone on to open his own restaurant in Springfield.

 

 

Kettlekamp says the inmates were on the edge of their seats and as quiet as a mouse with how attentive they were with Joiner. This is something Kettlekamp wants to do again as he even had some inmates writing him notes saying how beneficial this experience was.

 

 

Kettlekamp appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM morning show.
