Drugs: Crime and Punishment (cc)


Powerfully presents the life-altering impact of a drug arrest, trial, conviction and incarceration. The accounts and dramatic reenactments of young people who broke the law and got caught, show the harsh realities of being handcuffed, arrested, booked, fingerprinted and locked in a cell. Program underscores the fact that any drug arrest has life-long consequences for the individual, family and friends. It affects finishing high school, college admissions, job prospects and employment, immigration status, and the rights that attach to citizenship. Program also looks at the legal consequences of using a fake ID; underage possession and use of alcohol; and drunk or impaired driving. The costs of crime are very high-from the legal fees to the toll on lives and the stigma of a criminal record that cannot be erased.
