Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards forced his mansion staff--all convicted murderers--to "slave" for him in order to receive pardons. This is the inside story of one such "slave," Forrest Martin, who was sentenced to life in Angola State Penitentiary. Not only was he innocent, but he never had a trial and never pled guilty. The former high school football star served ten years of his sentence before being released. His story includes an underground boxing ring, being forced out of the law library by prison employees, and the corruption he witnessed at the Governor's mansion where he worked in exchange for a pardon.
Saint is now known as Forest C. Hammond-Martin, Sr., a proud father of six who dedicates his life to being a role model and educating at-risk youth. He is a boxing instructor who previously fought matches for Sugar Ray Leonard's Boxing Gym. Saint has also worked for the Baton Rouge Public Defender's Office. He lives his wife in Alexandria, Louisiana. Tom Aswell is an award-winning journalist who worked as a newspaper reporter and editor for twenty-five years. He is the author of Louisiana Rocks! The True Genesis of Rock and Roll, published by Pelican. Aswell lives in Denham Springs, Louisiana.
