Everyday I hope to die. Â I’ve worked very hard to make a good life for myself. Â After using drugs since I was a child (18 years) and going to jail for a few years, I found recovery. Â I went to an outpatient drug rehab and to 12 Step meetings. Â They really did help me put my life back on track. Â I learned that I always felt depressed and used drugs because of where my life was at. Â Fortunately, by learning from others who have recovered from similar situations, I recovered too. Â I went to two colleges and earned a degree in Business Administration, and a Bachelor’s degree in accounting. I was planning on becoming a C.P.A., and was advised by the C.P.A. Board, that I am eligible to do this even with my past history. Â Unfortunately, during my last year in college, I went out one evening to help a neighbor in distress. Â After a disabled man working at a Seven Eleven store made a false report to the police, I was falsely arrested. Â The police made up two false charges against me. Â Three months later they made a third false charge. Â It took 71 court appearances, six and a half years, and about $81, 000 in legal fees to be found NOT GUILTY of all three charges. Â During these court proceedings,I was threatened that I would be put in jail again for at least a year. Â The police officers perjured themselves (I have documentary evidence to prove this). Â Some of the eight lawyers that I hired through these proceedings committed legal malpractice. Â Several judges did wrongful actions against me, including incorrectly charging a jury. Â I had two trials, and an appeal over a period of six and a half years. Â I was found NOT GUILTY of all three charges. Â I hired an attorney to sue the police and the County. Â The lawyer filed the wrong charges in Federal Court, and the case was dismissed. Â Then he filed the correct charge in the state court, but it was past the statute of limitations, and again dismissed. Â I paid another attorney another $25,000 to sue for legal malpractice. Â The malpractice defense attorneys got my case wrongfully thrown out of the Supreme court, even after admitting the legal malpractice that was done to me. Â At this stage of events, my lawyer is appealing the wrongful decision by the Supreme court judge for throwing out my malpractice suit. Â I have spent over $100,000 in legal fees. Â This has taken up over a quarter of my life (almost 13 years). Â My opportunities to think and work as an accountant have stripped from me. Â I graduated from college in 1999. Â I have been severely depressed and haven’t been able to do much work. Â I talk about my situation everyday to someone or a group of people. Â People are afraid that I might explode soon and do something terrible. Â I feel the same way. Â I have lost a temporary job as a result of thisÂ recently that only paid me $7.50 per hour . Â I can’t support my self. Â I have been denied aide from Social Security and the State. Â Every day I’m ready to die. Â If the law suit is resolved, I have a chance to have a life again, otherwise I’m sure to find myself getting close to the obituaries.
