During the 1920’s and 1930’s, Phil Thatcher was one of California’s most notorious criminals.
His troubled youth in a rural community led to a life of escalating crimes.
Having spent more than half his life in and out of reformatories and penitentiaries, an encounter with Jesus Christ in a cell at Folsom Prison would forever change his life.
Five years after his conversion, Judge Wagler of Oakland pronounced Phil Thatcher “The most completely rehabilitated man in the history of Alameda County courts.”
