Detroit man repents by exposing corruption from inside jail, police say

DETROIT – The imprisoned son of a Detroit preacher is being called a rat by other inmates and a snitch by some security guards.

Police said he's a hero, and prosecutors have been using his information to solve crimes and expose prison corruption.

Why does he do it? He said he believes God wants him to help police to repent for the sins that put him behind bars.
