The worst day of Brad McGahey’s life was the day a judge decided to spare him from prison. McGahey was 23 with dreams of making it big in rodeo, maybe starring in his own reality TV show.

Then he got busted for buying a stolen horse trailer, fell behind on court fines and blew off his probation officer.
