About the Program
tom boyleFebruary17, 1994 started out as a good day for Tom Boyle. He was on the vergeof making a multimillion dollar deal for his company, and was looking forwardto going home the next day to his family in Vermont. 

Tom wasn't a heavy drinker,but as the day wore into night, he decided to have a few beers with somefriends, and later, a few beers more with some strangers he met in a barin Concord. That's the last thing he remembers about that night.

Tom's next memory beingrolled along on a hospital gurney. A state trooper informed him that he,Tom Boyle family man and successful businessman, had just killed hispassenger by driving into a Concord snowplow at 100 miles per hour. Tom'simmediate response? He didn't know anyone was in the car. 

At his trial, he was sentencedto 4-8 years for manslaughter a sentence he is still serving. He hasalso taken seriously the notion of paying a debt to society. For the pastfew months has been telling his story to large groups of students at schoolsand colleges. 

This is a story of makingall the right decisions in life, save one and losing everything. Andall in Just One Night.
