He was sentenced to eight years inside the penitentiary, sharing an eight by ten foot cell with a man who was serving time for first-degree murder and strong-armed robbery. Worse, he was sentenced to those eight years for DUI convictions. His dreams came crashing down around him.
He is now working through the toughest battle of to live the life that he has created for himself.
