Over the past year, we have been collecting
the stories of inmates, correctional officers, lawyers, judges, parole officers,
parents, victims, and others whose lives have been affected by the criminal
justice system. In tandem with a new series on National Public Radio, Prison
Diaries, we've conducted interviews and given inmates and officers tape
recorders so they could keep audio diaries of their experiences in prison.
Each story is focused around a specific case
and is told from the perspectives of the people involved. As you listen
to the stories, you can explore each speaker's personal space by navigating
360 degrees-up, down, and around-prison cells, offices, judges' chambers,
and living rooms.
To address many of the issues affecting our
nation's growing prison population, we will add new stories throughout
the year. Be sure to bookmark this site and come back often.
You will need the QuickTime plug-in to view
the panoramic photos.
