Parole Board: Missouri | 2001
Documentary that looks at how the parole process works in the "Show Me" state. The Missouri probation board consists of seven members appointed by the governor. One or more board members conduct face-to-face interviews with inmates to determine if they should be allowed to serve the remainder of their sentences on the street. The program profiles three inmates as they face the board: Christopher McKee, 26, is serving 7 years for two counts of statutory rape; Alva Rasa, 22, is serving 14 years for burning two churches when he was 18; and Byron Smith, 34, is serving 5 years for failing to pay child support.
