Frontline: Stickup Kid

Co-Producer, Director of Photography

What happens when a juvenile offender is locked up in a super-maximum security prison?

“Stickup Kid” tells the story of Alonza Thomas — who, at age 16, was sent to adult prison after being charged with armed robbery shortly after California enacted a new tough-on-juvenile-crime law.

Alonza went on to spend more than a decade behind bars.

This film was a digital exclusive for PBS Frontline.
