Tyrone Werts: Part Two

January 15, 2013

In 1975, Tyrone Werts was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. After 36 years as a model prisoner, his sentence was commuted in 2010 by former-Governor Ed Rendell. In part two of our two-part interview, WPSU's Patty Satalia talks with Werts about the men and women serving life terms in Pennsylvania's prisons and about his work with the Philadelphia Public Defenders Association and with Temple University's Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program.
