Prisoner turned PhD, Dr. Paul Wood

I love hearing stories like this. 

Paul Wood was sentenced to prison for murdering his drug dealer when he was eighteen.  At the time, his mother had just recently died of cancer.  Unable to cope with his loss, he says he made some bad decisions that led him down a dark path.  But while in jail he turned his life around and even earned his PhD.  Now he goes around giving motivational speeches about recognizing your own personal prison and how to change your life for the better.
