Rogelio Rodarte

Second Chance Graduate

Rogelio Rodarte, also known as “shorty,” grew up in Vista, California. His first prison sentence was at the age of 17, and he served almost three decades cumulatively. Rogelio hopes to live his life to the fullest by giving back to the community. He views his greatest achievement in life as his sobriety.

“Second Chance impacted my life by giving me the foundation and strength to help me get on my feet and encourage me that there’s more than going to prison or being on drugs. What motivates me is to stay clean and off of drugs and be a productive person in society.” 

—Rogelio Rodarte
