Save a young life

To whom it may concern,

 I am writing to please help us save a young life!

 I am writing to ask you to please get ERIC Herron the help he DESPERATLY needs instead of putting him away in prison where, I don’t believe, he will get better! My name is Marqueta Irwin and I am his cousin who lives in Texas now. Eric is a good young man and could get the help he needs and recover to become a great man again. He has just fell into something he couldn’t control once it took it’s hold on him. He has a son to raise and I know he would have never taken this bad turn if he could have known what was going to happen and how horrible his life would turn. He has a great heart, strong will, and plenty of life to make the most of it he can if given a chance to get better and recover from this mess he has got into.

 All of us have made mistakes in our lives. Some have made them and not learned anything. I know Eric has! He will turn this around, make what he can out of his life and do well to be able to be near and love his son.. the way only he can. I keep in touch with the family through phone, texting, facebook and e-mail. He was trying so hard to keep a good job, raise children and be happy before all this happened. I have pictures that would show you he was on the right and true road. He just hit a fork in that road and made a bad choice in which direction to go!

 We have all done this at some point. I know the charges against him are serious and carry weight. He has done wrong but I know he never meant for this all to happen. He let something take hold of him and he couldn’t get loose. He deserves at least one chance to turn this around and get back on the right road. With treatment I know he can do this!!!

 PLEASE GIVE ERIC THE CHANCE TO GET TREATED AND RECOVER FROM THIS AND GET A CHANCE TO LIVE HIS LIFE THE WA Y HE WAS BEFORE THIS HAPPENED! HE WAS A GOOD MAN AND STILL IS IF GIVEN THE CHANCE TO BE TREATED!!!!

 Thank you for your time.

 Sincerely,

 Marqueta Irwin, TX
