He was never charged with any other crime and says he doesn’t know why he cannot get any leniency from the courts. His father was a pastor of a Lutheran Church for many years in Maryville.
He says his dad was very upset with the fact that the police department lured him into providing pills to a stranger he met online.“Being lonely kinda screws with your head sometimes,” Rake said regretting the whole ordeal.
Rake explains that he wants justice but doesn’t believe the three pills he took the young girl that night equates to 20 years of his life.
He says he got the pills from an aunt of a friend of his.
Rake says he was no drug dealer at all, just a guy looking to hook up with a pretty woman he met online.
