Locked Out: Florida
As journalists, we often report about people going to prison. But, we never hear about what happens to inmates once they leave. Meredith Sheldon and a team of eight journalists followed the lives of seven people, some just minutes after they were released. Locked Out: Florida explores how the label “felon” has followed Florida felons long after their prison sentences ended.
In a Netflix-style, episodic docu-series, we uncover the barriers Florida Felons face after they leave the prison gates. The multimedia report includes video episodes, written stories, radio clips, photos and extras.
Below is the first episode of the series. You can read and watch the full report here.
