James Willock was raised in Sacramento, California. He was sentenced to 34 years to life at the age of 19. He was in prison for 28 years of that sentence, he went to the California Board of Parole Hearings in March of 2020.
His powerful transformational story is featured in CROP Organization's book, "Men Built for Others." He was first on The Prison Post Podcast a couple of months after he was released from prison. He came back on the show a year and shared what he's doing today 13 months after he was originally on the show and to participate in the Men Built for Others Series.
He gives back to his community, to the people around him, and to the people who are in the same situations that he was in that lead him to a life of crime and being sentenced to life in prison. Our interview with James reveals his perspectives of freedom, possibility, service, and what it is like to come home after 29 years of incarceration.
