After reading to page 99 in Monster and taking some much-needed SSR time, you all completed a blog post based on what we learned about Steve's case. We found out from Steve's defense lawyer that he could be sentenced to spend 21 years and 3 months in jail if he were found guilty. This would make Steve more than 37 years old when he left jail. So, today's blog post writing asks you to answer the following questions:
How old would you be if you went to jail for 21 years, 3 months?
What do you think your options for employment/ education would be?
What would your life be like when you got out of jail?
