Rehabilitation for Christian Banks
I would like to take a moment to tell you about one of my best friends, Christian Banks. He's friendly, kind, and extremely loyal. He would do anything in his power to help a friend. His smile and laugh are contagious, and he's always a pleasure to be around. He's helped me through some major personal crises, and I'm not sure where I would be without his friendship and support.
However, as so many young people do in this country, Christian suffers from a drug addiction that has prevented him from reaching his immense potential as an individual. He is currently facing a lengthy prison sentence for charges that I believe are a result of his addiction. Although no one was hurt in the alleged incident, the charges against Christian are serious in nature. These alleged actions are not an accurate representation of the Christian Banks that I know and love, and I fervently believe in his ability to have a positive impact on the world if he is able to overcome his addiction.
In my personal experience, I have seen many people undergo extreme and positive transformations as a direct result of the rehabilitation offered by drug court. On behalf of myself as well as everyone else who has been positively impacted by Christian, I am petitioning the attorneys and judges of Livingston County to consider drug court as a worthwhile option in Christian's case.
Although he has let a lot of people down over the years, he has also overcome a traumatic young life and managed to positively impact countless others. I pray that the potential I see in him will have a chance to be fully realized someday soon. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
