I [F/17] will be spending summer break in juvie.

Two months after I got my license, I was responsible for a car accident that severely injured both the driver of the car that I struck as well as his passenger. The accident was a result of me texting while driving. While I walked away with a few bruises, they had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

Earlier this week, I pled guilty to two counts of vehicular assault in juvenile court and was sentenced to almost three months in juvenile detention. The only reason I'm not there now is because the judge was lenient enough to allow me to finish out the school year (finals are next week) But on the evening of May 17th, I have to report to the county juvenile detention center to begin serving my sentence. I won't be released until the evening of August 11th, the night before school starts. So, I'll be spending the summer break in between my junior and senior year in jail.

I own the fact that what I did was stupid, reckless, and criminal. I know I deserve my punishment 100%. I know I deserve worse even. I also know it was just dumb luck that no one was killed. It so easily could have ended much worse.

I feel so guilty for what I've done. I was able to apologize to my victims (they showed up to court to see me sentenced), but it doesn't make me feel any better. I feel like I need to do something to atone besides simply serving my sentence. If anyone has any advice, I'm definitely open to it.

I'm trying not to worry about juvie, but I admit I'm nervous. I've never been in trouble with the law before, so I have no idea what to expect. My parents say they'll come visit me once a week while I'm away. That makes me feel just a little better.

Finally, to anyone reading this, please don't text and drive. The amount of guilt I'm feeling right now isn't something you ever want to experience, believe me.

  • They're mocking the resident pedo who camps out on just about every post where a young girl confesses her vulnerability. Try really hard to keep up, Bright Boy.

  • So how old are you?
    This does not ring true. Do people in America get drivers licenses in their second last year of high school?

  • Yes they do. This state is 16 yrs old.
