Kenneth Whitehead didn’t even get his bus ticket.
By Alabama state law, a convicted felon released from prison is supposed to receive a $10 check and a bus ticket to wherever he or she wants to go. But after completing 13 years of a 20-year sentence for armed robbery and being released in April Whitehead said he didn’t receive a check or a bus ticket.
“They sold out of bus tickets,” said the 36-year-old. “I never heard of that.”
