Larry Lawton, A stocky, muscular man with a shaved head, tattoos covering his body and dark goatee; he is not their Father, Mother, Teacher, Counselor, or the Police; he is an ex-con with a passion for helping teens and young adults. Larry Lawton spent 11 years in some of the toughest federal prisons in the country. He was convicted of racketeering in connection with jewelry robberies. Upon his release from prison, he founded the Reality Check Program.
Born and raised in the Bronx and Brooklyn NY, Lawrence spent six years in the Coast Guard before making some bad choices which led him to associations with organized crime. While in prison Lawton saw inmates stabbed and friends die. He saw young men raped and turned out as prostitutes for other inmates. Lawton was stabbed and stabbed others. He studied to be a paralegal and became a gang mediator; he somehow kept his sanity by helping other inmates.
Since his release from Federal prison in 2007, he has worked with teens and young adults. He now tells kids how he lost time, his family, friends and his freedom; and that it just wasn’t worth it. Lawton changes the way kids think. It’s all about choices, and Lawton’s passion makes him a leader in the field.
