Next Episode of Judgment Day: Prison or Parole? is
Every year in America, more than a quarter of a million inmates become eligible for parole – most of those seeking early release will be denied, but a large percentage are released from prison before serving their full sentences. Upon release, two thirds of these parolees will commit a crime that sends them back behind bars, making the decision to release an inmate early a high stakes decision for all involved. "JUDGMENT DAY: PRISON OR PAROLE?", a new series directed and executive produced by Peabody and Emmy Award-winning documentarian, Joe Berlinger, takes viewers inside the emotional and potentially troubling process of parole hearings in a three-part original series
Coming before the Colorado Board of Parole is Benny Sandoval, who has served 17 years of his 25-year sentence for 1st degree attempted murder, a crime he committed at the age of 16. North in Wyoming, Steve Barela, convicted of 2nd degree murder of his wife, hopes the board will give him a chance at parole.
