Columbia first in SC to pass 'Ban the Box' ordinance

COLUMBIA, S.C. — "A new ordinance in Columbia is making history in South Carolina. It gives previously incarcerated people a fair chance at a city job.

News 19 talked with the man who helped change the game.

There are over 21,000 inmates within the South Carolina Department of Corrections.

From 1992 to 2014, Lester Young was one of them.

"I went to prison at 19 years old for murder. I was selling drugs at 16 and a half to about 19 years old," said Young. "I had an altercation with someone over a drug dispute. I shot this person and he died."

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
