He Was An Inmate, Now He’s Proving Everyone Deserves A Second Chance

A man who spent time behind bars and even lost custody of his son has turned his life around and is showing people that everyone deserves a second chance at life.

Attorney Brian Tannebaum shared the story of his client Raymon Burns on Facebook, ” This is my client. He spent some time on the other side of the law and on the other side of some bars, causing him to have to give up custody of his son.”

He goes on to say that after that experience, his dream was to work at Sports Authority. He then filled out an application and told them about his past, and assumed he wouldn’t get the job, and so he left with his mom and went off to Burger King as he had heard he may have a better chance there.

Burns adds, “While walking through the parking lot of Burger King, Sports Authority called his mother’s cell phone (because he didn’t have one), and asked him to come in for an interview. They gave him a job and based on his intelligence and work ethic, his manager encouraged him to go to college. So he went and got his AA and then his bachelor’s degree and then he went to law school and passed the bar. Today I drove to Palm Beach to tell him that he had been admitted to the Florida Bar.”

This is an amazing story of glory and guts where an ex prison inmate never gave up but kept giving his best, God helped him to succeed and become something in life.
