Ex-con preaches to the youth

-A A +A


Gadsden County Times Editor

Anthony Parker learned the hard way what it means to make bad choices. That's why he has devoted his life to helping young people make the right choices. 

Parker, a Quincy, Fla. native, has been invited by Florida's Attorney General Pam Bondi to be a presenter during the 26th Annual National Conference on Preventing Crime in the Black Community, May 18-21 in Miami.

Now a minister, Parker who was the first black Florida State Trooper to be named "Trooper of the Year" in 1988, spent 18 years in a federal prison because of "the choices" he made. Those choices resulted in his 1990 conviction of conspiracy to sell cocaine.  During the conference, he said, he will share his experiences detailing the harsh realities of choices and consequences.
