Sherrie Gavan is the mother of Clayton Gavan. They live in Jefferson County, Missouri. So does Clayton’s heroine dealer. Clayton is still in high school. With the help of family and friends, Clayton has been clean, except for the couple of times his 20-year-old dealer showed up. Mrs. Gavan says the unnamed dealer (gotta protect him you know) came to her home and to her place of work. In December she sought him out as he lives nearby. She just wanted him to stay away. Gavin who is under 5 feet tall, said he went to his car, reached inside and it frightened her. When he approached her, she hit him with a baseball bat. He kept coming so she hit him again. If he is dead or disabled, the press isn’t saying so.
In the video you can view here , the son talks about his addition. This boy doesn’t look like, or speak like, any addict I’ve seen or heard. He could be your boy, my boy. Mrs. Gavan has been charged with third degree assault. The dealer is reportedly back selling. As odd as the charges are, the response from the State Prosecutor is arrogant. Assuming he really cannot speak about someone he is prosecuting, he simply shouldn’t speak. Something is very wrong when a Mother cannot keep a drug dealer off her property, let alone be threatened by his actions, without facing trial.
I hope this has convinced Clayton that his family has gone the extra mile for him, and it’s time that he take responsibility with their continuing help. God help our children. The streets are full of evil. Click the link above to view the video.
