Choose Progress

Please help all parties involved in this tragic situation by choosing progress and allowing Austin Vantrease to return home and begin paying back his debt to the Diviney family. No one involved in the incident on November 7, 2009 intended for this outcome, and each and every person affected wishes it never happened.

Austin has been in prison in West Virginia since July 2010 and every day, he lives with sincere remorse and regret for his involvement. He has a long road ahead of him, one he plans to pave by actively teaching teens about the consequences of their actions and how they can prevent incidents like this from occurring in the future.
