Myths and Facts About Prison

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Horror stories about life in prison are no doubt fueled by fictional TV shows such as Oz and The Night Of. Lee Chapelle knows the reality, having spent more than 20 years at various penitentiaries across Ontario and Quebec. That first-hand experience gave him a unique skill set and understanding of the corrections system. He launched his own prison consulting business and now helps people facing jail time. He joins The Agenda to discuss what life is really like behind bars. Chapelle is also featured in TVO's documentary How to Prepare for Prison.
