The Story of Mike Danton

Photo: Darren Carroll/SI
After serving 65 months in prison, during which time he received intensive therapy, Danton was freed in the fall of 2009. Now 30 years old, he is studying psychology (with a near 4.0 GPA) at St. Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and playing for the Huskies, the school's hockey team. "I know this is going to sound nuts," he told SI, "but I'm glad I went to prison...because the negative-downward spiral that would have happened would be been 10 times worse. It saved me in a way."
