25 Coming of Age – A Valentine’s Invitation

Jeffrey Deskovic, who lost half his teenage years and all his twenties to wrongful incarceration, is looking for a date for the evening of Valentine’s Day 2017, so we invite eligible single women to listen closely. He talks about the social challenges he faced after exoneration as a result of being in prison at the crucial period when teenagers and young men are forming friendship groups, and experimenting with dating and romantic relationships.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Jeffrey talks affectionately about the non-romantic prison and post-exoneration relationships that have been important and influential for him, with other prisoners, prison authority figures, a long-distance stranger, his family, brother Chris, a college dean, and fellow exoneree Richard Rosario, and relates some humorous incidents in his life that have made even untenable situations bearable. He also engages in a bit of back-and-forth banter with Zoe about what women want!
