In our regular series, "The Value: What Matters to Us Most," correspondent Farai Chideya interviews a father of three in Newark, NJ, who is a repeat felon trying to stay straight.
Deron McNair was first incarcerated as a juvenile for aggravated manslaughter and has been in and out of prison ever since. He was released most recently eight months ago and he is holding a steady job as as a refuse collector with the Newark Sanitation Department. Deron says he was able to go straight thanks to the Newark Comprehensive Center for Fathers. He tells Farai why he lived a life of crime and how his three children are part of the reason why he's making the difficult choice to stay legit.
