Reaching out like never before
Meet Mentor, Johnny Scott
My story of trouble and triumph
The Breaking Point
How I turned it all around
Brandon was sentenced to 30 years in prison for murder, another friend of mine was sentenced to 20 years for accessory (Sadly he was murdered before his second year in custody), and a female associate of my friends was also sentenced to 20 years. I, on the other hand, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, which was immediately suspended to 5 years of probation. I wasn't allowed to return to my high school, but I did go to alternative school where I joined the Eagles Club and earned honor roll. I then returned to Stratford High School where I got the highest grade in the English department. Before my father died my GPA was a measly 2.5 and after he passed, it dropped to around 0.5. After my friend was arrested my GPA jumped to a 3.5+.
