From the Badlands to Redemption

Ten years ago, Merrill Jackson stole Cadillacs and helped his fellow heroin addicts shoot up—behavior that earned him the nicknames “Seville” and “The Doctor.” This ABC News program explores the extraordinary transformation that took place in Jackson’s life after he met Joann Muller, an activist Christian minister and mother of five from the suburbs of Philadelphia. Through one-on-one interviews and extensive footage from Jackson’s drug-dealing days, the fearless street preacher explains how her community-oriented mission took shape, while the man formerly known as The Doctor contemplates the painful life he left behind.
