Description

Philadelphia reports on the story of Larry Lavin, a dentist who "was the mastermind of a huge international cocaine operation ... [that] made him rich, and ... earned him a sentence of 42 years in jail." The author dissects the psychology of a former criminal and describes his turning into a model prisoner, exhibiting "the same leadership qualities that had helped him mastermind his cocaine empire." The story focuses on Lavin's emotional expectation of his 2001 parole hearing, the first he is eligible for "after 15 long years in the pen."
