Our law office just received the following letter:
Dr. Joe Citron & Mark Matney:
I wanted to take a final moment to thank you for all your efforts on my behalf. It’s been a long, arduous road, but I’ve finally reached the end of it. I wouldn’t have made it here had it not been for all of the work that you and Mark put forth.
I arrived at the jail at 9 AM on Thursday morning for my agreed upon 48 hours. I wasn’t looking forward to it, but I knew that it was for the best.
However, God smiled down upon me. At 8:30 AM on *Friday* morning, one of the deputies came to my cell and told me to pack up my things as they were sending me home that morning. I explained to him that I wasn’t supposed to leave until the following day, and his response was that he’d be happy to let me stay the extra 24 hours if I really wanted to argue with him. With that, I grabbed my gear and headed out the door into the welcoming sunlight.
I asked Mark about this and he told me that, while this sort of thing does indeed happen occasionally, it is quite far from common. He also said that there is virtually no chance of any kind that this would come back to haunt me later on down the road and that the courts or the jail would say “You only served part of your sentence.”
I am truly a blessed man.
Sitting in that cell gave me 24 long hours to contemplate my place in this world. After seeing the lengths that the two of you went to for me, I began to think about my own career. I’d always dreamed of serving my country in uniform – hence my continued attempts to join the Army – but I believe now I have a different calling. The very first thing I did upon leaving the jail Friday morning was to walk a block down the street to the Salem Public Library and get two books on law school. I’m very seriously considering becoming a lawyer once I finish the undergraduate degree I’m currently working on. If I can help even one person like the two of you helped me, it will be a career worth having.
