Just days after catching criminals on the streets of Machakos, Kenya, police officer Morris Kaberia found himself behind bars. Fellow inmates—some of whom he himself had put in prison—now ridiculed him as they passed by his cell. How had he ended up in this wretched place? And how could he get out? A curious law book, a persistent priest, and the nonprofit Justice Defenders became his tickets to freedom—and the reason he’s never left.
