"Prison Was Your Nightmare, This Home is Your Reality" -- Photos of the First Day of Freedom from Prison

The young man spent 3 1/2 years in a California State prison. His mother Veronica started coming to De-Bug's ACJP about 4 years ago and our community supported her advocacy for her son. Together we attended court, met with the attorney, and created a social biography video that allowed her to show the judge why she was fighting so hard for her son. She has been waiting for his moment coming home since that time. She picked him up from prison in the morning, and held a family welcome home party that very night. He told her,  "Mom, I can't believe I'm home. This is like a dream," he said as their car pulled up to his aunt's house where about 30 of his family members waited. She responded, "No, son. Prison, that was your nightmare, and this..." she points to his family and friends, "this is your reality." (Photos by Charisse Domingo)
