Solitary Nation with Matt Duhamel

Heather and James

Judee Reeves wrote in 1994, “Families of inmates have been called the “hidden victims of crime” (Carlson & Cervera, 1992, p.5). When a crime is committed, there are victims other than the primary victim(s). These secondary victims include the families of the primary victim and another often overlooked group of victims — family members of the person who has committed the crime. The families of inmates are often overlooked in research and in designing social programs, yet many suffer devastating consequences as a result of a loved one’s incarceration.”

Host, Matt Duhamel speaks with Heather who’s husband James is incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit.  She lives as a ‘prison wife’ everyday but explains that she is blessed and happy to be married to such a loving man.  Join us for this two-part podcast series about spouses behind bars.
