Interview with KBOO fm about Federal Prison Handbook

On May 25, 2017, Christopher Zoukis was interviewed by KBOO fm radio host Amy Johnson about his new book, the Federal Prison Handbook.

Q: Could you start by telling me about your book?

A: When I came to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, when I was first charged with a crime, I had no real experience with criminal justice issues in any way shape or form. So I went looking for maybe a book or information out there that could help me understand the process, and there wasn’t anything. I mean, there were a few little things here and there, but nothing that was very visible or very informative. So my goal was to create a book that would be able to answer the questions for people who its the first time entering the system.

Christopher Zoukis writes about the lack of right to vote in prison. While felon voting varies state to state most felons lose their right to vote when they are incarcerated. It is also possible even after they have been released, and are functioning members of society once again, that the right to vote will not be given back to them. Zoukis discusses how this is a determent to society and the individual and what is going on right now to try to change it.
