The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office presented a program on underage drinking at local high schools last week. The program was given at Commerce High School, Jackson County Comprehensive High School, East Jackson Comprehensive High School and Commerce High School.
“We are all here because we want you to be safe,” said Jackson County Sheriff, Janis Mangum. “We want you to have fun, but we want you to be safe. One choice changes it forever.”
Shane Godfrey of X-Treme Videos produced a video documenting the effects of drunk driving on Bryan Hensley, Eric Krug and Chris Sandy.
Chris Sandy was convicted on two counts of vehicular homicide by DUI following a vehicle crash that killed two people. Sandy had a .14 blood alcohol content level.
“I was 22 years old and I made a choice that I will regret for the rest of my life in April of 2000,” said Chris Sandy. “That night started out as a party. I had four big drinks, back-to-back-to-back.”
