SPOKANE, Wash. -
We all have a past, things we wish we could take back. Most of us aren't lucky enough to make amends like some inmates at the Airway Heights Corrections Facility.

It was the early 2000's in Walla Walla. Luis Verduzco Jr. was just a teen back then. He says he knew he was on borrowed time, but he didn't care.
"All I knew when I was out there was gangs and selling drugs," he said. "It got me to here. It took 19 years of my life."
