LaTosha Williams blocks a tear from slipping down her cheek as she walks toward a Cedar Crest apartment she rented nearly three decades ago. The two-

It’s been years since Williams retraced her steps to the time before she went to jail twice and collected a criminal record that would follow her through adulthood.
