Maybe Rachel needs in patient treatment for addiction.Maybe she can get it in prison.As far as her childrenIfind it sad,she loves her children.What mother does not.Most know there are many reasons she lost custody.It does mean thier father is perfect, look at what he chose as a girlfriend/ wife.He is FAR from perfect.he does need her kids in her custody but I do hope she gets her life straight and becomes a better sober citizen ad gets back in her childrens lives.Until she gets away from where she is her behavior will not stop.Rachel is a very good person with many troubles that I hope gets better.

Glad to see that Abe is finally getting his!! You should have been in prison yrs. ago for murder. The court system has been great for you, but I hope it ends here. Wish now I had stayed an officer so I could meet you in receiving at the prison door.

I am sure you are talking about the death caused by his driving on Hatteras Island.Indeed it was a shame and tragedy considering his continued drinking and driving,he is a serious alcholic that i do not see ever quitting.sAd for people on the road and his children.I continue to be sorry for the death he caused on an innocent person,he says he did not remember it so he really has little feelings.Sad but true!

I'm glad that not everyone has forgotten. It was said in court that he was responsible for another death in Ky. or wherever he use to live. He remembered the day after. He went in the room of the girl that was suppose to be his girlfriend at the time and apologized. She couldn't hear it though because she was in a coma. Too bad she didn't know he was also a cheat with another girl already pregnant. He treated he like crap in court. I hope he gets arrested everytime he breathes sideways. I know this isn't what God expects from me, but this animal doesn't care how many lives he destroys. His poor children deserve better!!

I believe you to be correct about another alcohol related death lr severe injury.He is an alcoholic..end of story,he cannot quit amd never has.He was never been ordered to not drink alcohol other than the general part that states so in newer court orders.He will not be violated by probation and the courts for drinking,if they did that then everyone on probation might be in jail and it is "legal" in spite of the death of an innocent young lady as well as the other victim.
Until he is taken off the road there is no one in my opinion safe from him.He will always have alcohol in his system no matter the time of day or night as he drinks everyday.True fact.If he is in jail he surely will go into dt's and with his level of alcoholism he may be more of a health risk than the majority of alcoholics.You did know he drives right? he can be volitile as well, domestic violence within that household was common.Now its pills I see or worse.When people keep going through the system without thier cases being looked at,as in prior cases then this type pf behavior will continue.Again I feel bad for the children of both of them.

Read Between the lines, Thank you so much. I was a correctional officer until recently due to a disability caused by an inmate. No, I didn't know he was driving but expected as much. He shows no respect for anyone. I have alcoholics in my life, but they are still smart enough not to drive. I pray daily that he gets major time. I worked close custody and trust me they will do little to help him get through the dt's. I hope he suffers dearly. Now I have to pray for my own soul. The inmate that assualted me and is serving 3 life sentences deserves more compassion. May God keep us safe from the likes of the Abe's of the world. God Bless and thanks for letting me vent.

I can understand why she is drawn to abusive, alcoholic, drug addled guys... I thought she wanted out of that crap, but I guess I was wrong.
