Drug rehab no joke

I can certainly understand why Mr. Price feels the way he does. Where does one draw the line? How many chances should someone get? When is “enough” enough? I don’t know. I am not qualified to make decisions like that. That is what judges are for.

As a recovering meth addict myself, I sure am glad Judge Darlington saw fit to give me a chance. With the help and support of Drug Court, I was able to turn my life around. I’m certain a lot of thought and consideration was given before sentencing Mr. Frye. There were probably many factors the public isn’t aware of. I don’t believe it was done indiscriminately without weighing all the factors involved in this case or any case for that matter.

I can tell you this – if Mr. Frye fails, he has a lot of years hanging over his head. A lot more than he would have got had he gone to trial. The rehab he is going to is no joke. It is a very tough year-long behavior modification program. Mr. Frye has been to prison many times. Believe me, it would have been easier to go back there. He can do time.
