GATESVILLE — Life went from bad to worse for Korey D. Henderson when he was convicted of aggravated robbery and sentenced to 60 years in prison when he was 18 years old.

Growing up without a father, spending too much time on the streets in his hometown Dallas, young Henderson struggled as he grew up, but after he was arrested and sent away, the world really came crashing down.
