Had all gone as planned, 19-year-old Heather Johnston of Atlanta would have just completed her first year in college. Instead, she is praying for a second chance and hoping she won’t end up in prison.
A little more than a year ago, Johnston graduated from high school. She was, by all accounts, a teenager who had everything going for her. A rising tennis player backed by a supportive, churchgoing family, Johnston was preparing for her freshman year of college, and had even won a scholarship.
I hope to pay for image storage space tomorrow (I have to go through a few contortions to accomplish this and don’t know if I’ll succeed!). If ABC puts the segment online, I’ll have screensnaps up on Wednesday.
