About Marty Angelo - http://www.martyangelo.com
Marty Angelo worked in the entertainment business from 1965 to 1980 until his abuse of drugs and alcohol led to his arrest for cocaine possession in late 1980. Angelo experienced a dramatic conversion to Christianity in mid-1981 prior to serving 2 1/2 years in prison. He became a licensed minister while incarcerated and immediately entered full-time prison and substance abuse ministry upon his release.
Angelo has worked for over 20 years with various Christian based organizations including Faith Farm Ministries, Teen Challenge, and Chuck Colson's Prison Fellowship.
Angelo recently made news when he offered to serve hotel heiress Paris Hilton and actress Lindsay Lohan's jail sentences if they agreed to enter faith-based residential treatment facilities. Angelo also came to the defense of author James Frey in 2006 when talk show host Oprah Winfrey accused Frey of lying in his book, "A Million Little Pieces."
Earlier this month Angelo debated Rev. Jesse Peterson when Peterson spoke negatively concerning NFL football star, Michael Vick's "I found Jesus" statement after his dog-fighting guilty plea in federal court.
