A man by the name of Mike Anderson is finally being sentenced to jail, 13 years after his initial crime of armed robbery, due to a clerical error on the part of the corrections system. Since then, he has lived an upstanding life, had four kids and started his own construction company.

In the last podcast of the semester, the Whim staff debate whether or not the corrections system is about punishment or corrections while also debating whether or not he should have been jailed.
