'I took the law into my own hands' - Ex-Con Carpenters


Full Episode

Adetola Adeogun learnt the hard way that you can’t take the law into your own hands. She saw red when a stranger she’d allowed to stay in her flat refused to leave. Adetola used pepper spray while trying to force her way back into her property. She was charged with GBH, reduced to common assault, and served six months in prison for her actions. 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.
