Falling in love with a prisoner sentenced to life

  • Summary

  • Ashleigh (not her real name) is a kind of woman we've all heard about many times, but don't often get to hear from.


    A couple of years ago, Ashleigh received a letter from an inmate who is serving a life imprisonment conviction for his involvement in a double murder. They soon fell in love with each other.


    Ashleigh joins us today to talk about their relationship, about the realities of courtship under the ever-present eye of corrections, and about her hopes for the future.
