'I killed a man with one punch' - Ex-Con Carpenters


Full Episode

Nottingham-raised Jacob Dunne struggled in school, and fell into gang culture, selling drugs and fighting. In 2011, he inadvertently killed a young man in a fight, leading to a prison sentence. After his release, he engaged in restorative justice with the victim's parents. Jacob has since turned his life around, now dedicated to helping others. Along with hosts Taury and Raphael Meade, he works to create a community meeting point. Ex-Con Carpenters gives those who’ve done wrong, the chance to do right. Father-and-son carpenters, Raphael and Taury Meade, guide former prisoners in designing and creating meaningful pieces of carpentry for someone they’ve hurt through their crimes.
