Are the sins of the fathers visited upon the sons? And the daughters? Why will seventy percent of the children of the incarcerated follow their parents to prison? This book examines the challenges of maintaining familial bonds when the trauma of incarceration is added to the mix. From execution to natural deaths to short rehabilitative stays, the impact of the incarceration of a loved one on families and children is explored through the eyes of the families. Dr. Charvat has conducted more than one hundred social history evaluations for death penalty trial preparation and appeal. According to the author, there is no greater trauma inflicted on a family than the imprisonment of one of its members, and there is no reason to the lengths that people will go to retain and restore their relationships in the face of seemingly impenetrable barriers. These stories are just the tip of the iceberg. The number of families effected each year is steadily increasing, and the ineffective manner in which we deal with crime continues to injure the innocent; namely their families.
