A little over a week ago, 21-year-old Megan’s mother said goodbye to her one-year-old son Alexis and went to jail. To serve the punishment she deserved, as she claims, with her young immaturity and stupidity. Shortly after Megan closed the door of the prison cell, we addressed a letter to her in the women’s prison. The ones that her published story evoked among JOJ television viewers. At first a young drug addict and a piece, but later a loving mother who, due to her serious life mistake, had to leave her only one-year-old son. We didn’t wait long for an answer. “My first night was terrible. I couldn’t sleep. I was still just shuffling and having nightmares. The next day I knew the medication I was being recommended would be necessary because I couldn’t stand the pain and I would collapse completely. But I can’t afford it. because I have to fix mistakes, “ writes in a letter to Megan.
In her letter, the young mother writes about the dark period she experienced during her need for puberty. In this case, too, her love was marked. A great singing high school girl is talked about at one point in her life. “I didn’t use my own mind, which told me from the beginning that it was wrong. Instead, I let myself be seduced and fell to the bottom, because of the man I thought would protect me.”
But that did not happen. Megan has become an irresponsible schoolgirl. In addition, up to the ears soaked in drugs. “This period lasted about a year. The consequences for me were not clear. I lost everything. The family I had a back disaster for, my friends did not tolerate my behavior, the school that fired me. Everything ended up for me there. I didn’t care. that I didn’t want to lose Peta. ”
He ended a ton of intervention when he returned from Bratislava with a friend, a drug work. So, holding back the bars, a hype came. And I’ll find out she’s pregnant. However, he is not with a friend for whom he ends up in custody. “NAKA has detained us. I note the day before I found out I was pregnant. After that finding, I was one hundred percent determined that it was all over. Well, it’s too late.”
Megan claims that her story should be a frightening example and a memento not only for her but also for other girls. At the same time, however, it must be emphasized that it wants to correct all its past mistakes.
Her next fate is in the hands of President Zuzana Čaputová
In an interview with JOJ Television, she admitted that she was very interested in Megan’s case. The young woman addressed her request for commutation of her sentence. “We have the materials already completed. We will have a consultation on this and other applications next week. So it is currently being assessed.” said President Zuzana Caputova.
The president’s decision-making will be difficult. Because on the one hand she is a legitimate convicted woman, for serious drug offenses. On the other hand, there is a regretting mother and her son, who, for the time being, has to face mutual separation due to the state’s involvement. Whether the president could give Megan alternative punishments will probably be a difficult question for her office as well. “Reducing the penalty rate, or dragging the sentence, or mitigating the sentence that the president may propose at the institute has not yet changed the type of punishment. Of course, we will also try with this option,“Says President Zuzana Caputova.
“I do not avoid punishment. All I ask for is an alternative that will allow me to be such a son. Seeing him grow up and prevent threats we do not have to. As a mother can do everything, and I will do the impossible to give my son the life you he deserves a family he’ll be proud of. I can fix what I questioned. For Alexis, “ Megan said in a letter.
