Dawn’s employers at the Post-Prison Education Program have stood up to support her in court, saying she’s turned her life around and has been working towards a master’s degree in social work.
Ari Kohn, president of the organization, said he knew about Dawn’s past when he hired her. When approached after her arrest he said he “didn’t give a damn” about her history.
“She’s smarter than hell,” he said Monday. “The prisoners love working with her.”
