Kenton prosecutor Sanders, Life Learning Center to announce ‘Second Chances’ partnership at reception

The Life Learning Center, will announce a partnership with Kenton County Commonwealth’s Attorney Rob Sanders at a reception on March 7, at 6:30 p.m.


Life Learning Center is a “life change” facility that helps at-risk and disadvantaged individuals break down barriers and reach their highest potential.

The non-profit organization was founded by William P. Butler.

The 12-week education and care continuum at Life Learning Center focuses on addressing barriers in all domains of life: physical, relational, spiritual, financial, and emotional.

In addition to life skill training, the care continuum provides on-site resources such as legal aid, food assistance, tax prep assistance, mental health counseling, and more.

LLC’s candidates meet weekly with an assigned Candidate Support Coordinator to help obtain employment and achieve his/her personal milestones.

The new partnership will offer diversion and alternative sentencing opportunities for individuals facing certain criminal charges, and expand programs that reduce recidivism, provide critical skills, and keep our communities safer.


To announce and explain the partnership, Sanders will join Life Learning Center President Alecia Webb-Edgington, and special guest Matthew Charles.

Charles is the first man freed under the federal First Step Act, prison and sentencing reform legislation championed by President Donald J. Trump, who also recently featured Charles in his State of the Union address.

The program will be emceed by Rocky Boiman, an 8-year NFL veteran, Super Bowl champion, ESPN analyst and host of 700WLW’s “The Eddie & Rocky Show.”

Holly Harris, President of the Coalition for Public Safety, the nation’s largest bipartisan organization working to make our justice system more effective, will join the group to announce a surprise grant to support the new partnership.

The Coalition for Public Safety’s mission is to maximize the effective and fair use of limited public resources in the criminal justice system and to promote a system grounded in fairness, due process, justice and the rule of law.
