Jarvis was charged with the conspiracy to commit murder back in 1985, and was sentenced to death in June of 1990. Find out why Jarvis, who never stabbed the corrections officer was sentenced to death, while two others involved in the murder, for whom there was much more damning evidence, were sentenced to life without parole. Hear about his case, and learn about the notorious prison snitches who testified on behalf of the state to implicate Jarvis to the murder.

Hear Jarvis’s haunting a PEN Award winning poem, “Recipe for Prison Pruno,” which intertwines his death sentence with his now famous recipe for prison hooch.

Theme song SENTENCED, is complements of the band Stick Figure, from their album “Set In Stone.”
