The documentary film Pete and Omar tells the story of two individuals released from prison. It details the ups and downs of trying to make it on the outside after a prisoner is released. Those that spoke at the event are determined to stay out of prison. The highlight of the evening was when Robert Lilly announced that he was a free man. Lilly served a total of 17 years in prison and another seven years on probation. That’s over half of his life. WE all wish Robert well as he works hard to help others integrate back into the “free world.”{{more}}Community members listening to ex-convicts tell their stories.
