How about 14 years instead of 14 months? maybe that will give him more time to get clean and away from the drug? and plenty of time to nod off

I have to say an AMEN to OhioResident....F.T. has a long list for many years. For gosh sakes, he is 42 years old and needed to have woke up and realized what he has done along time ago. He not only is a druggie and a rapist but a listed SEX OFFENDER!! I'm in total agreement with you ea333555. You have to want to change the ways you are living and what you are doing.

@OhioResident: Unfortunately, you are right. Until an addict wants to quit and change his life, no form of treatment or punishment will fix their addiction. Sad but true.

The only reason that F.T is apologetic, it's because he got caught and has to go to prison. If he was still on the streets, he would still be doing the same ole' thing. He's been arrested, by his parole officer, a few times because he fails urine drug tests...is this just a poor boy in need of someone to feel sorry for him? (Maybe)? He hasn't changed in years, he has been sent to the ER numerous times due to overdose. He spends 90 days in jail for a crime, gets out and goes back to drugs, he needs more than what prison can do for him. If he changes this time, I will be more than happy for him, but I'm skeptical.

@Help4Addicts: Very true. There are a few drugs out there that can help someone with the battle of addiction but it is only one part. The addict has to go to therapy and find a new way of life and learn to deal with their struggles.

You run the word apologetic in the title and then a picture of the criminal with the words "nodding off" under it.

That makes about as much sense as feeling sorry for someone who has a laundry list of past offenses including a conviction for Rape.

This is only a form of replacement therapy and without proper therapy by a licensed addiction counselor will only work for so long. I truly hope Freddy gets the help he needs while doing this time in prison.
