UNC professor designs graphic book to simplify the prison system

"The idea of a graphic novel, to me, seemed perfect for this new generation of people that are coming into our system in adult correction,” said Shane Tharrington, North Carolina Department of Public Safety employee who helped with the book.  The state prison system can be complex, but a professor in UNC's School of Government created an educational graphic novel featuring illustrations and diagrams to simplify the incarceration process for accused young people entering the system.
