Sheffield musician gets back on the right track after prison
A Sheffield musician who was jailed for dealing drugs has turned his life around to help vulnerable young people. Michael Thompson was 22 and had just graduated from Sheffield University when he was handed a three year sentence. He served 14 months and says prison proved a turning point in his life.
Four years on, he runs a social enterprise, is a Prince’s Trust ambassador and volunteers for charities working with drink and drug addicts. He’s also appeared in music videos highlighting the problems ex-prisoners face.
