Former Drug Dealer Becomes a Lawyer After Being Given a Second Chance By a Judge
Fast forward 16 years later and Martell has completely transformed his life and has now become a lawyer. And none other than Judge Morrow himself was the one who swore him in!
“It was kind of in jest, but he understood I believed he could be anything he wanted to be,” Morrow said.
But in May 2021, Martell did return his courtroom, not as a criminal or a CEO, but as a lawyer that had already graduated from law school and passed the bar exam.
Martell says that he will use his personal life's experience to inspire others who are on the wrong path to make the needed changes, and turn their lives around.
This is a perfect example that demonstrates what second chances and rehabilitation is all about!
