Life After Lockup spoilers reveal that when one is a felon, it doesn’t make it easy to get a job, rent an apartment or even just be treated like everyone else. Sarah Simmons recently talked about the positive effect that the reality show has on former inmates lives. She explained that it “normalizes” ex-prisoners and makes viewers see them as human beings.
The Stigma Of Serving Time
Life After Lockup spoilers confirm that felons face a lot of stigma after they have served their time.

For one former cast member, she credits the reality show for normalizing felons and allowing viewers to see that they are human beings who just happen to have made mistakes.

Former Cast Member Explains
Life After Lockup spoilers reveal that Simmons spoke to ScreenRant about the show normalizing felons. She explained, “I think that it helps normalize the fact that there’s lots of people who go to prison and come out, and it’s normal to be in a relationship too and want that companionship, and reach out to people while you’re in that position. I think that a lot of people have the wrong idea about everybody who goes to prison.”
Life After Lockup Updates – Viewers Get To See Human Beings
Life After Lockup spoilers reveal that Simmons added that people don’t realize just how many people come in and out of the prison system. She said that it’s totally normal to be in a relationship and want a companion. However, she feels that people don’t see it like this and they actually have harmful stereotypes about someone who went to prison.
“I think that a lot of people have the wrong idea about everybody who goes to prison.”
Everyone Is Unique, Even Prisoners
Life After Lockup cast member Sarah Simmon used a specific example of this. When she would be at work and mention her husband was in prison, many times she would get the automatic question if she was scared of her husband. She would reply by asking why would she be scared of her own husband. However, it eventually made her realize that people view felons… even rehabilitated ones negatively.
With that being said, she admitted that every prisoner responds to circumstances differently. Some use it to better themselves and not make the same mistakes again. However, others end up going back behind bars repeatedly. The point she is trying to make is that every single human being is an individual and can’t be lumped together… including felons.
