Vernon Hilyer of Clarion shares his "life sentence" Hilyer's 21-year-old son, Brandon, died after driving drunk in September 2008.

"My name is Vernon Hilyer aka: Brandon's Dad. I share a true life story about my son's fight with alcohol and the effects his choices had on everyone who knew and loved him. My son Brandon was an outstanding all-American kid that was full of life, but alcohol impaired his control and eventually robbed him of life. Now I serve a "Life Sentence" due to his drinking and driving. My Life Sentence is not one behind bars but a life full of sadness and emptiness. I share many things about his drinking world, both in high school and in college that most can relate to. My true-life story has had a life changing effect on many people. As you look through this site, think to yourself how this will impact your students. Working together we can save one more life."
