Mr. Augie Will You Go to Court With Me?

The day they sentenced him to life in prison my heart broke. But the moment had been long in the making.

Over the years I have been asked on several occasions to go to court by a young man. Most of the time he hopes that I will influence the outcome. A time or two this has been the case, however most of the time the sequence of events leading to this moment have already been set into motion. The outcome is a foregone conclusion.One does not arrive in court by accident. It began many, many years ago and it began with willful disobedience.
