Randy Peterson Des Moines Register Published 2:15 PM EST Feb 7, 2019 AMES, Ia. — Matt Campbell signed a recruit who was arrested for armed robbery. He was sentenced to a residential youth facility, where he completed his high school degree. Next season as a true freshman, he’ll play football for Iowa State. As long as he keeps his nose clean while he’s in Ames, fine, all’s well. Generally, most people, including Isheem Young, a safety from Philadelphia, deserve a second chance.

Second chances for offenses that do not include physical harm are usually OK. But if Young messes up at Iowa State in a bad way, well, then it's on the head coach and the staff that recruited him to a college campus. Robbery is serious stuff, regardless of the circumstances.

Job Training is Giving Her a Second Chance. Supported by The Neediest Cases Fund ByRemy Tumin Jan. 14, 2019 The first time Laurie Fleming visited New York City to see if it was the right fit, she knew she had to live here. At the time, she was living in Columbus, Ohio, working in the county records office. “Right after 9/11 I thought, what other place to be but New York?” she recalled. It was time for her to pursue her dreams of becoming a fashion designer. When she left New York after that first visit, “I cried, it felt like I was leaving home,” she recalled in an interview in the fall. “That’s when I knew I was going to do it.” She saved up and made the move in late 2002. But things did not work out … [Read more...] about New York Wasn’t What She Had Hoped. Job Training is Giving Her a Second Chance.

Lee Rood as told to Courtney Crowder and Rekha Basu Published 7:07 p.m. UTC Jun 19, 2018 Editor's note: Lee Rood first told this story on stage at the Des Moines Storytellers Project: Busted event. The Des Moines Storytellers Project is a series of storytelling events in which community members work with Register journalists to tell true, first-person stories live on stage. An edited version of Rood's story appears below. I’m a little bit headstrong. My parents claim I came out of the womb that way, but I blame my job. Investigative reporters are taught and encouraged to keep pressing, to keep digging, until they get closer to the truth. Do that for years, and it spills into your personal life.

But this particular story begins on a cold January night in … [Read more...] about Peter Gunn, a wallet thief and a second chance: Lee Rood
