Rick Wershe Jr., formerly known as “White Boy Rick,” rose to fame in the 1980s as a drug dealer in Detroit, Michigan. He became famous for befriending high-ranking members of drug clans when he was only a teenager and was ultimately given a life sentence when he was just a teenager. But the 2017 documentary White Boy tells a very different story about Wershe Jr.’s life on the streets of Detroit — and the conviction that made him the longest-serving Michigan inmate who was convicted as a juvenile of a non-violent crime.

After you watch the doc, if you want to know how Rick Wershe Jr. is doing now, I’ve got all the details here.
