‘It’s hard coming out of the penitentiary’: CEO offers new opportunities

As a regular routine, Sky Easley gets up at 5:50 a.m., brushes his hair and teeth, eats a block of cheese for breakfast and hops on his bike for a 19-minute ride to a “work crew” meeting at Northwest 4th Street and North Walker Avenue.

Easley, 23, and other individuals meet four days a week as part of work crews who do jobs in Oklahoma City, Moore and Edmond. What they and Easley all have in common is a criminal record.
