HARTFORD — Romelo Goss was 17 years old and had no money for phone calls home while being held as an adult in the Manson Youth Institution.

“At the time, my family was struggling,” the Bridgeport resident, now 23, said.

He recalled the prison environment “was like a war zone.” He contemplated suicide and since he was being investigated as a gang member, he was placed in “security risk group status,” which meant at times he would spend 23 hours a day alone in his cell.
