Maryland Senator Ben Cardin tours Montgomery County's Pre-Release Center in Rockville.

Later this week, Maryland Senator Ben Cardin will hold a hearing on Capitol Hill on efforts to turn convicts back into citizens when they leave prison.

Montgomery County's pre-release center, located near the White Flint metro station, houses more than 150 convicts who are nearing the end of their sentences. Art Wallenstein, the county's director of corrections and rehabilitation, says they try to turn convicts away from anti-social behaviors many will engage in when they're released.
