A Bad Choice Made As A Teen Shouldn’t Determine Whether We Succeed Or Fail Throughout Life
Bedford, TX, November 6, 2014 – When we’re young we often do things we later regret. But nothing can ruin a person’s chance for a great job, buying a house, or getting custody of their children quite like a criminal history. This is especially true nowadays when all anyone needs is access to a computer to search police records, so it’s imperative a criminal history be eliminated.

Excerpt from a five-star review on Amazon.com:
“…Often most of us go through our day clueless of the laws that govern us. I read that we may routinely commit 3 felonies a day because of all the laws and regulations that are imposed on us…In Brian Willett’s [book] he updates his earlier two versions to give the reader a broad understanding of the law and its implications…Willett does a good job of writing scenarios of John Public and what happen to him. You soon realize that often bad things happen to good people and a series of events can trigger a spiral downward. Of course Willett notes this does not replace a need for an attorney, it merely gives you a foundation to work with. But in our litigious society it is not a bad idea to have one around you can trust because ignorance of the law is no excuse. This book is a good read and valuable tool for the average citizen.”
