Gideon Man and Truth 4 Teens - Rick Osborne

RickOsborne.jpgFrom a life of drugs, crime and biker gangs... Rick Osborne was a hardened criminal who had spent more time in jail than free. He was also nasty inmate, sometimes spending months in solitary confinement and having to wear a cage mask to protect the guards. Rick will tell us how his life changed, thanks in part, to a Gideon bible left in his prison cell. Rick is in Charlottetown as a guest speaker at the national Gideon convention, and he's now the head of a chariatble organization called Truth 4 Teens, based in Ontario.
