Old Inmate: Bodman’s Advice Helped Turn Me Around

I have been arrested multiple times by Bodman when he worked in Kootenai. He has always treated me with respect as long as I was respectful. There was this one time I was an @##$$#@% and he straightened that up real quick. Anyways when he arrested me for theft(The last time I have ever been arrested. 7yrs ago)he gave me a minute of his time and some advice of changing paths and bettering myself. He gave me a phone number for help, something no one had ever done for me. It changed my life I went back to school/college got an AAS degree and am now married and living a respectful life/The Old Inmate.
