CNN’s The Redemption Project to feature local woman tonight

Michelle Walter, of Twin Lakes, whose son, Nathaniel, was killed as the result of a crash in 2013, will be the subject of the episode of CNN’s The Redemption Project today.

On June 14, 2013, Nathaniel Walter was driving a lawn mower along Highway HM near 342nd Avenue in Randall when he was struck by a car driven by Thomas H. Johnston IV, 29, of Twin Lakes. Nathaniel Walter was 16 when he died two weeks later as a result of the injuries he sustained in the crash.

Johnson pleaded no contest to a charge of  homicide by use of vehicle-controlled substance. He was sentenced in 2015 by Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Mary Kay Wagner to five years in state prison with 10 years extended supervision. Johnston also will lose his driver’s license for five years.

The program, hosted by Van Jones, “takes viewers into the room as offenders come face-to-face with those impacted by their violent crimes as part of the restorative justice process,” says the CNN website.

The episode featuring Michelle Walter, who is a Salem School teacher, will air at 8 p.m., tonight, on CNN.
