Several inmates from the U.S. Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania were at Susquehanna University in nearby Selinsgrove on May 1 to relate their experiences with white-collar crime to about 80 Susquehanna University business majors.

The inmates are part of a Federal "boot camp" prison program which involves a "service to society" component through the Federal Intensive Confinement Center unit. It is one of a very few, and possibly, the only program of its kind for first-time offenders in the country. Inmates in the program volunteered to tell students how they took a wrong turn from respected business persons in their communities to white-collar criminals.

Richard Davis, assistant professor of accounting in Susquehanna University's Sigmund Weis School of Business, arranged for them to speak to students taking his legal environmental course which covers criminal law as it relates to business. Also attending will be students from William Ward's business and social responsibility class. *
