MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Montgomery District Attorney Daryl Bailey is hosting a job fair Monday specifically for ex-offenders.

A criminal background is one of the biggest hurdles ex-offenders have while they’re trying to get back on their feet, Bailey says. It’s often the one thing that keeps them from getting into the workforce. So, he has pulled together a group of companies to connect with those former criminals, willing to give them a chance.

This is the second job fair of its type Bailey has organized since July. There will also be agencies there that provide resources to help ex-offenders continue that transition.
