Dead 22 Year Old Girl, and the Attorney
Tiffany Gregory, took drugs and died. She collapsed in the bedroom of the apartment of Ann Arbor Assistant City attorney Ron Plunkett. Plunkett's girlfriend, Tracy Corson had supplied some of the drugs that comprised the "lethal combination of cocaine, heroin and alcohol" that killed Tiffany Gregory. Miss Corson has just completed a 2 year prison term for her role in supplying the drugs that killed Miss Gregory.
Attorney Plunkett was a US Army Reserve medic who was scheduled to to be deployed to Iraq later in the year. His admitted addiction to crack cocaine has cost him his license to practice law, for now, perhaps permanently depending on the outcome of the criminal case that he Michigan Supreme Court greenlighted this week. The Michigan Supremes held 4-3, that Plunkett can be prosecuted as an aider and abetter for supplying the money and transportation used to obtain the drugs that killed the young woman who dropped dead in his bedroom.
At the link you can read the local account of Mr. Plunkett's woes.
Wedsnesday night I was talking about my own set of woes and how the Universe continues to put my personal problems and defects of character in my path--I suspect that I am obligated to make some important changes in the way I approach my life and career. By the grace of God, I don't have a 22 year old dead girl on my conscience (lots of other stuff, though) but I certaily can find many other commonalities between Mr. Plunkett and myself. Deadly arrogance comes to mind.
