Description

Hansen investigates just how credible criticism of Georgia's parole board actually is. Apparently, some parole board members were getting rich off private contracts and corrupting the agency. Bobby Whitworth, a member of Georgia's Board of Pardons and Paroles, along with Walter Ray, the current chairman of the parole board, are both under investigation for accepting tens of thousands of dollars in what critics call a bribe from Lanson Newsome, who wanted the two members to pass a law that would benefit his company.
