Sánchez was sentenced to 30 years in prison when he was 16 years old. He dedicated himself to studying in prison — earning his high school diploma, and reading hundreds of law books in the library — and that work made him realize that his sentences were wrong.
He obtained two associate degrees from Valencia College and two bachelor’s degrees (law and political science) from the University of Central Florida, graduating with triple honors. He graduated from law school at the University of Miami, also with the highest marks. He finishes his studies thanks to a scholarship from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, which supports exceptionally promising students in financial need.
Sánchez, 38, now works for the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition promoting the vote of ex-convicts in a crucial election year.
