On The Run For 48 Years
Imagine escaping from prison and being on the run for nearly 50 years, only to be recaptured. That’s the story of Robert Stackowitz. He escaped from a Georgia prison in 1968, and was just recently found by authorities to be living Connecticut. His attorney Norm Pattis says Stackowitz is fully rehabilitated and in poor health, and shouldn’t return to prison. We talk with Pattis about the case. Then, Tina Maschi of Fordham University's School of Social Service joins us to talk about the legal and social definitions of rehabilitation.
