I am currently incarcerated for HTV (habitual traffic violator). It is a Class C felony and carries two to eight years in prison. I never in my life have had a serious violent crime. This will not be the first time I will be sent to prison for driving a car.
Might I also mention that I never in my life had a driver’s license nor had the opportunity to obtain one? You would think that a program would be constructed for me and other individuals like me to get our license and be productive members of society and not overpopulate the prison system.
But because I wasn’t drinking and driving and putting other people’s lives in danger I don’t get a second- chance program as someone that was drinking and driving would get as an alternative to going to prison.
When will something be done to help us nonviolent offenders that aren’t drug abusers and drinkers?
