After serving 292 days in jail and pleading guilty to two felony counts, for his DUI and driving with a revoked license last year, Stephen Rexroad was sentenced to time served, 30 months probation, admission to a treatment facility, and fined $1,000 plus court costs. The DA argued for a six year prison sentence.
My brother, Michael, has been dead for over seven years now. Rexroad served three years of a ten year sentence for that crime. It took less than four years for him to be caught driving drunk, I believe his second DUI. (Mike's death was a hit and run with lots of time to sober up.) Mike's birthday is in two weeks. My mother will put new flowers on his grave before then, just as she has done several times a year since his death.
I do hope Rexroad straightens his life around. I really do. If not for his own sake but also so he doesn't devastate yet another family other than his own.
Addendum: It occurs to me that since I am getting several hits from Josie and company's link to me, I should provide some further context. I wrote extensively and over three days about Mike here.
