Life on the Inside: How to be a parent

DuJuan Quinn and his daughter Eriuna, now 15, and his son DuJuan, Jr., who will be 12 in December.

The time that inmates spend in prison is a punishment for the crimes they’ve committed. But a prison sentence doesn’t just impact the person behind the prison walls. It has ripple effects on everyone in their life.

One of the most important people in inmate DuJuan Quinn’s village is his sister, Tondalaya Quinn. While Stateside was at Lakeland Correctional Facility, we recorded a conversation between DuJuan and Tondalaya about how they’ve stayed connected as a family while he’s been incarcerated.

DuJuan has three children. His oldest daughter Kujuana is 17, his daughter Eriuna is 15, and his son DuJuan, Jr. will be 12 in December.
