RE: Letter of Christine Michelcic in Support of Her request for pardon/clemency
My name is Christine Michelcic. This letter serves as my humble request for pardon/clemency.
I have been charged severally for various offenses. I request that these charges be sealed from the public. On or about October 5, 2016, I was charged with over-speeding; on or about March 22, 2017, I was charged for shoplifting; on or about June 7, 2017, I was charged with driving on the wrong side of the road; or about October 11, 2017, I was charged with being drunk in public; on or about April 4, 2019, I was charged with possession of controlled substances and was sentenced to six months; on or about August 22, 2017, I was charged with shoplifting; on or about February 4 and 5, 2019, I was charged with violating Drug Distribution law.
I write this letter with utmost remorse. I am ashamed that I am now branded as a convicted criminal. It hits me so hard because I always hoped I become a responsible, respectful, and law-abiding citizen since my childhood. I have never imagined that I could be on the wrong side of the law at any time in my life.
I have been addicted to Xanax, which impaired my judgment and caused me to commit the offenses. The bad choices I made in my past life have tainted my character. There is no excuse for my conduct. Had I chance to rewind time, I would have done things differently. I am fully determined to make everything right again.
I have made strides for growth towards self-improvement. In that regard, I enrolled into a rehabilitation program to help deal with my addiction. Also, it is worth noting that on June 10, 2021, I attended and completed the Hernando County, FL Drug Court Program. Besides, I receive monthly treatment from Baycare drug court therapist. I also attend the 4 Narcotics Anonymous meetings every week. I have decided to further my education by pursuing my Master’s Degree.
Before my life took a turn for the worst, I was a teacher and did receive my Bachelor’s degree. This shows that I had an ambitious future and that I have the ability to make good choices. I derive much joy in being with children and nurturing them to the fulfillment of their dreams. Therefore, a second chance would mean a new lease of life for me. I have always dreamt to be a teacher. Granting me my request herein would give me an opportunity to pursue my dream. Throughout my dark past, one important lesson I have learned is that life is too precious. For that reason, I have learnt that I need to look for healthy alternatives to express myself and have fun. I am fully convinced that expressing my feelings through therapy and healthy conversations go a long way in keeping me safe from substance abuse. In light of the foregoing, I request for clemency/pardon. I am hopeful that when granted my request, I will keep up my newly found path of responsible living.
Thank you for your consideration of this matter. I am looking forward to your positive response.
