SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. — Joe Baker, a Tennessee inmate who has been incarcerated for more than 24 years, has developed a website where offenders can apologize to their victims online in a non-intrusive way.
Offenders can post their apology on The Apology Project, and victims have the ability to read the apology and offer a response if they so choose.
Baker has also written two books. “Thinking Outside the Fence: A Guide to help your incarcerated loved one in their quest for rehabilitation and reconciliation” is a guide for family members and friends of offenders. The book is a compilation of lessons learned by Baker during his years of incarceration.
He has also written “Thinking Outside the Fence: Workbook for Offenders” which is a program he created for inmates. “This program is a guide to help offenders transform their lives,” Baker says. “The lessons in the workbook promote a strong relationship with God, apologizing and making amends to their victims, and helping the offender to become a positive and responsible member of society once they are released.”
