Murder convict as a mentor?
City Paper is reporting that Rainbow Lee Williams, a murder convict and co-defendant in the Black Guerrilla Family prison gang conspiracy case, was mentoring students at one of Baltimore's alternative schools: Achievement Academy at Harbor City. He apparently worked for the nonprofit Partners In Progress, run by Bridget Alston-Smith. City Paper says that Alston-Smith wrote a back-cover blurb for "The Black Book," a self-improvement guide for people in the BGF gang.
I've asked the city school system for the status of Partners In Progress' contracts and procedures for criminal background checks on employees of contractors.
