Sherman is a writer and editor based in New Hampshire. He was convicted of several white-collar felonies and sentenced to two back-to-back years of incarceration at the local county jail, narrowly avoiding state prison. He qualified for an early release home-confinement with electronic monitoring program for his second year and made it through all those difficult days thanks to a very supportive family and church community. Because Sherman understands that not everyone who goes through the criminal justice system has those kinds of support networks in place, he does what he can to support people transitioning back into their community post-incarceration. Writing for Successful Release is just one way Sherman tries to “pay it forward” and help others get back on their feet after incarceration.
