Duane "Dog" Chapman
For Duane "Dog" Chapman, crime was a family business - though this was one family who ended up on the right side of the law. As a successfully reformed ex-con, Chapman developed an intimate knowledge of the ins-and-outs of the criminal world. But unlike most of his former peers who just claimed to have "found God," this born-again Christian went straight - even going so far as to run a successful bounty hunting business out of Hawaii, profiled on the popular reality TV series, "Dog the Bounty Hunter" (A&E, 2004-08). Shedding the spotlight on Chapman's particular business of tracking down the criminal element, the show distinguished the former convict's ability to understand criminals and his efforts to help rehabilitate them after they were caught.
