Corey Thomas was given a life sentence, but was later pardoned and released from prison.
Thomas was recruited by the Fathers & Families Support Center and participated in the Training To Work Project and earned his forklift certification. He has also completed carpentry certification through Ranken.
He has since obtained gainful employment – working at FedEx as a forklift operator. He has surpassed the Training To Work salary requirements and is making $12.50 an hour.
Thomas is working on building his relationship with his 22-year-old daughter and was recently released from the Dismas House.
