Here's What You Should Know About Timothy Preston Chavers From 'Kids Behind Bars'

By

A&E's newest docuseries Kids Behind Bars is definitely super disturbing, but last week left us with a little hope as we saw Curtis Brooks get released after serving 24 years of what was supposed to be a life-long prison sentence. The show tells the stories of child offenders who were sentenced before the courts ruled in 2014 that life without parole was a "cruel and unusual" punishment for minors. 

Now, their sentences are being looked at retroactively, and many are being immediately released or given new sentences, while others are being re-sentenced to life. Tonight's episode follows the case of Timothy Preston Chavers who's been sitting in jail since 2010. But what did he do and where is he now?
