I dated a guy like this, bought his BS story about how he had all this hard luck that got him into trouble, and how he wanted to straighten his life out...within 2 years, he was back in prison, for several charges.

I'm certain there are many people who've gone through a troubled period in their lives and ended up being convicted and sent to prison but have somehow managed to get their lives back on track and left their past behind them.

Take, for example, the widely publicized case of Marcus Dwayne Dixon, an 18-year-old high school honor student and star football player who had sex with a 15-year-old female classmate.

She claimed it was rape, he claimed it was consensual, and a jury acquitted him of the charges.

However, because of their age difference, the jury still found Dixon guilty of statutory rape and aggravated child molestation, and sentenced him to a mandatory 10 years in prison under Georgia law.

In May 2004, the Georgia Supreme Court overturned Dixon’s conviction, stating that he should’ve been prosecuted on the lesser charge of misdemeanor statutory rape, which carries a maximum sentence of one year.
