“This is the kind of situation in which nobody wins. One family is devastated by the loss of their loved one, another family is now navigating the complexities of the justice system and the potential of their loved one serving a prison sentence. I implore you to think about your actions and the impact it could have on those around you. Don’t give in to anger or frustration.”
