After pleading guilty to drunk driving and resigning his position as chief of police in Alexandria Virginia this summer, David Baker is making a quiet comeback to the city. Baker returned to Alexandria at the request of Sheriff Dana Lawhorne, who asked him to speak with inmates at the jail. Lawhorne said that Baker's speech to the inmates was intended to inspire them to make something of their lives after they're released, and he says that he hopes Baker will be the first of a monthly series of speakers to visit inmates.
