Just months from graduation, Mark and four of his fraternity brothers headed to Spring Break. Each night, one would be the designated driver. But on the final night, they decided that the least drunk among them would drive home. Mark ended up with the keys at the end of the night.
The next morning, three of the men were dead, and Mark lay in the hospital critically injured and facing three felony counts of manslaughter. Instead of being the first in his family to graduate college, he would be the first to go to prison.
Mark speaks about the one mistake that changed his life in his program, “DUI: A Powerful Lesson.”
