From the Author
After my daughter died I didn't know what to do and my mind was cluttered with too much information and details. I sat down and started to write everything down in detail to help ease my mind. As the days, months and years past, I would look back on my notes and realized I had a story to tell. I want to give others hope, to let others know that there is a chance for justice and it’s OK to openly grieve as a man and as a father. The justice system is not what I thought it was, it is complicated and it takes time. It will also take a toll on your mind and body. This book will put you in the courtroom and you will experience the heartache I have gone through and will continue to go through for the rest of my life.
