TL;DR: Hey, another awesome anecdote supporting the other studies that state the goal of prison needs to be rehabilitation!

A judge blogs about how his “sentencing instincts suck” after reading a story about how a bank robber he sentenced to a decade in prison is now a top law student. The bank robber notes how the prison system he entered (which is still similar to the one we have now) needs to focus more on rehabilitation rather than just punishment: all in the comments, just gotta scroll a bit through the first comments and you’ll see!

Yes, my description was partially taken from reddit, but modified for accuracy.
