    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—It was a freezing February day at Northern State Prison in Newark.

    It was 1998 and Thomas Peoples was 37 years old, serving a 12-year-sentence for drug dealing. His mother had just died without seeing her son emerge from his second incarceration.

    Peoples and another inmate wandered the grounds with a joint in hand, looking for a place to light up.

    The wind snuffed out each attempt to strike a match, and before his exposed fingers could try again, Peoples suddenly had a moment of clarity.
