"The neglect I saw growing up was so common. It was everywhere."
No one standing in the courtroom the day of Christopher McGee’s sentencing would have wanted to relive his young life. The child of crack-addicted parents, Christopher was a son of the drug epidemic before he ever perpetuated it.
Christopher remembers many days when his mother took the family’s money to buy drugs at the crack house next door. He remembers days where he wouldn’t see her at all. He remembers feeling responsible for his sisters.
