FF 252 – Chasin’ Freedum with Quawntay “Bosco” Adams
On today’s episode of Felony Friday Quawntay “Bosco” Adams joins John to share his incredible story. Quawntay spent 28 of his 45 years of life confined to the cells of juvenile, county, state, and federal detention facilities. Now he’s using those struggles to inspire change and hope.
In May 2006, facing an impending conviction, Bosco escaped from a maximum security detention facility and was captured not long after. But his escapee caught the attention of an international audience. Then in January 2020 Bosco defied the odds again by discovering a loophole in the law that would change his own story. He filed a motion and fired his skeptical court appointed attorney. He took the fight for his freedom into his own hands and he won. Bosco was granted immediate release on July 24, 2020. While he was in prison he wrote the book, Chasin’ Freedum, which has been optioned for a feature film that is set to begin production soon.
