17 Years Served After A Deadly Accident: Second Chances with Martin Lockett
Martin Lockett came from an impoverished background, he still always felt loved. Even though money was tight, he never felt like he was lacking. They encouraged him to get involved in sports and school, because they knew the lure of the streets at that time was very strong. Even with all of this on his side, he wanted to belong somewhere and fit in, which lead to his first experience with drinking and drugs.
That experience helped him to break out of his shyness, which lead to more drugs and hanging out with the wrong people. While he felt like he belonged, he didn’t feel like himself, which left him torn. One particular night out led to deadly consequences. Martin found himself behind the wheel tired and ran a red light. The aftermath was the death of two people. The two people he killed spent much of their time helping others and happened to be sober activists.
A columnist who was covering the accident said, “Perhaps the person they will have ended up helping the most is the man who’s charged with killing them.” Martin knew his life as he knew it was over, but that quote stayed in his head for years to come.
