I haven’t posted here in a while but thought this would be a good topic to kick start a few new posts. This story is out of Indiana regarding a person who is serving a 28 year prison term from a drunk driving accident. But it goes to show, you can still change your life around, no matter what the circumstances are.
This week is Alcohol Awareness Week at the Mary-of-the-Woods College and Brandon Robinson is taking advantage of this time. He received a 28-year prison sentence after he was charged and found guilty of operating a vehicle while intoxicated which caused death and bodily harm. He is visiting this college campus to talk about his experience.
When Robinson was 18 he went through a stop sign causing him to crash into a truck. He killed three people in this accident..
Since he has been convicted he has spoken to 20,000 people about his story. He always stresses the importance of making the right decision before getting into a car. This is the third time he’s been to this same campus to speak. They asked him back because they felt that the students really connected with him and his message.
Jeff Malloy is the director of campus life and is the one that invited Robinson back. Malloy said “Brandon does a phenomenal job connecting with our students and educating them on the consequences of drinking and driving. He makes it very clear that the only real difference between him and our students was one accident that changed the course of his life.”
