Roger Caron – Go Boy!

Posted: July 16, 2010 in Life in Jail

A documentary on the life of Roger Caron, the author of the best-seller book Go Boy, was being filmed at the Cornwall Jail.  Roger Caron grew up in Cornwall and he still lives there. He was held at the Cornwall Gaol in 1954 before being sent to the Ontario Reformatory in Guelph.  He was convicted of several Break and Entries, Robberies and Escapes.

      Try checking out the chapters website or amazon. Roger’s books are hard to find as they are a little older but you might be able to stumble onto some good deals. Roger’s other book is called Bingo and it discusses his experience with the riot at Kingston Pen. Hope this helped
