White Boy Rick Primetime Special Thursday at 10 p.m. on Local 4


At 14, Rick Wershe, Jr. became the youngest FBI informant ever and helped bring down some of Detroit’s biggest drug dealers.

Then the FBI abandoned him, and he became a dealer, until being busted with eight kilos of cocaine. Wershe has been in prison ever since.

Hosted by Local 4 Defender Kevin Dietz, White Boy Rick chronicles Wershe’s improbable life story and his fight to be released from prison. 

Watch this primetime special Thursday at 10 p.m. on Local 4.
