  • After 14 years in prison, Travis Orange now focuses on helping others not make similar mistakes

    Travis Orange was 17 years old with a driver’s license. He had been good growing up and he wanted to fit in with a group he thought looked fun. He drove them to Hemingway, stopped at a convenience store and stayed in the car, he said. When they came out of the store and told him to drive away, he did. He said they had killed a woman inside. He served to 14 years in various state prisons after pleading guilty to charges stemming from the murder. Out in the world, Orange is bent on having a better life and keeping others from making the same mistakes that lead him to prison. He’s working several jobs, taking classes in culinary arts and speaking to any group that will let him.
