Jeff Lassey was an honors student at Doherty High School in Worcester. He played on many elite soccer teams. During his sophomore year, he decided that he wanted to fit in with the cool kids and started partying. His grades began to drop, and he was getting kicked out of school. One night, his friends convinced him to drive the getaway car in an armed robbery. The kids killed a man in the process, and Jeff was arrested at age 17. He served 9 years in prison, and he is now spending his time speaking to students about his story. He spoke to freshmen on March 24, 2016.
