He wanted to be a lawyer like his father, whom he admired and attempted to emulate.”

That was Mycki Ratzan in her sentencing memo for Kobie Gary. The sentencing was continued till this Friday because the DEA agent passed out under cross-examination by Jeff Weiner last week. The TCPalm covers the upcoming hearing and Kobie's background here:

In middle school, obese and hurting from a birth defect that “bowed” both legs, Kobie O. Gary was an ambitious student — determined to follow the path of his famed Stuart attorney father, Willie Gary.
Now, despite a “life-long dream” of attending law school, Gary’s defense attorneys admit his guilty plea in January to conspiracy to manufacture and distribute more than 100 marijuana plants has likely squelched that plan.
“Certainly this conviction ... could prevent him from getting a license to practice law,” Ratzan noted to U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore. Prosecutors have targeted Gary as the boss of a Hobe Sound marijuana grow house seized in October that netted 237 plants.
