He was one of three men involved in the late-night robbery of a bar. One of the men stabbed and killed the bar owner, and Gene was sentenced to life in prison without parole on a second-degree murder charge. He was 17 years old. Nearly 10 years later, after achieving influence in the prison culture of drugs, power, money, pornography and disdain for authority, Gene humbled himself and experienced a Christ-transformation.
Then, almost 35 years into his prison sentence, came an unexpected miracle. His story is riveting — from a life sentence of imprisonment to one filled with the power of God’s love, forgiveness and freedom, bringing hope to all.
