Dartanyon Blake is a man who got in trouble as a boy, and who hasn’t been able to get out. He’s 37 years old and has spent much of the past 20 years in jail for selling drugs and robbing people.
He was released from prison last fall after a parole violation following a drug arrest. Now, he’s in a Hartford-area halfway house, taking classes, looking for work, and gearing up to go home – back to where his family is. Back to where he’s sold drugs.
