Here is a redacted copy of my best friends plea. I'll never see him again. Meth does not bring about anything good. XXXX was charged and pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. XXXXX is scheduled to be sentenced December XX XXXX, and faces the possibility of life in prison, and payment of up to $2.5 million in fines. Where's the silver lining in this scenario ?
