I have not been charged with anything yet, and if I do get a charge, it will only be a misdemeanor paraphernalia charge. I am not a black tar heroin dealer. I am a former opiate addict that was in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong person. I was released the same night. I am currently researching for a slander case to try and redeem my good name.

there were only 4 of you, and you all were charged with trafficking a life-destroying substance as dangerous as heroin.

think of all you could have done with your life and instead you ended up addicted to smack, and you lowered yourself to associate with those other low-lives.

john take up a hobby, become a vegan and start your life over, you are the bottom of the barrel as far as i'm concerned.

I was telling my brother today about this heroin bust and the girl pictured in the paper. I said she was beautiful and could probably have had any future she wished for herself...only to be ruined.
WTF?

"Former" addicts don't associate with "the wrong people," and find themselves "in the wrong place at the wrong time." If you're still keeping company with drug dealers and looking at, by your own admission, a possible "misdemeanor paraphernalia charge," you're NOT "a former addict." Get real with yourself.

Matt, I have a family member who was involved with this too; I also have other family members who have been on the wrong side of the law in this capacity. I know how disappointing it is. I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you. You're so young, and your sister is older and supposed to know better.

Don't start automatically blaming other people for the faults of your sister. Sooner or later, you will have to come to terms with the fact that she is not perfect, and has a lot of growing up to do. Don't let someone else's bad choices suck you in and bring you down; you're entirely too young for that.

It *is* possible to love your sister and care about her without enabling or defending her bad choices. There is a fine line, and I am just sorry that you have to learn it at such a young age. If you would like to talk about all of this, just let me know, I've (unfortunately) had lots of experience being the family member of an addict.

matt anyone could have turned her in not just for the drugs but i just read the news story and it says she had been placed on the erie county most wanted list in jan. so just think it could have even been a family member that turned her in just seeing that she was on the most wanted list.

I feel bad for John
He has been a good friend of mine.
He just got into the wrong group of people and dated the wrong girl

I really have nothing nice to say about Kenzie so I will just shut up
