Danny was sent to prison originally for not paying a fine. This led him into a criminal lifestyle, in which he served a total of 22 years and 9 months in prison for various offences.
Danny struggles to read or write. Once stuck in the cycle of crime, unsupported, Danny continued to struggle with communication and was unable to understand the demands involved in setting himself up in the community.
39 years after his first offence, Danny joined his local KeyRing Living Support Network. The support this group offered him has allowed him to create a life for himself and he has not offended since joining this network 8 years ago.
The support given amounts to just a couple of hours a week, helping with paperwork, maintaining a tenancy and being involved in the community.
