“Hi my name is Cathy Powers and my 19 year old son Nicholas Alex Powers and is serving time at Pickaway with Matt. Like Matt he was behind the wheel driving impaired, he was huffing air duster and passed out behind the wheel. He crashed into another car killing an elderly couple. He was 20 miles from home and the victims lived a while down the road from us. Alex will be serving 10 years for this one big mistake. Alex’s accident happened on June 28th at 2:00 in the afternoon. This is a day that I will never forget. So many lives were changed that day. I remember seeing the news coverage of Matt’s accident during this time. I could write a book on here about how crushed and broken hearted I am but I am sure you know my feelings all to well. Alex is a good kid with a big heart and I am scared that somewhere down the road this will be lost. The victims family see him as a monster. I know they are hurt and angry and I do understand this but my boy is not the person that was behind the wheel that day. O.k. sorry for my rambling but I do want you all to know that having your son up there with mine has helped him tremendously. Alex speaks very highly of how helpful and positive Matt has been for him and I like you know there is an answer why in all of this but we just don’t know what it is yet. Thank you.” #saveyourvictim
