Young had testified that his mother was a drug addict and that her home sometimes had no light or water.
He worked at a funeral home but soon joined his friends to treat drugs as a way to survive, he said.
Young said in his sentencing that he had been relentlessly studying in prison to "improve himself."
He said: "I see this as if I were in college, I can not go to frat parties or talk to women, but now is the time to put my skills to work." When I read in my cell, it's as if I was studying in my cell. bedroom ".
Judge Sharp told the Tennessean: "If I could have not given you life in prison, I would have done it."
He added: "The majority of defendants (in drug cases) are not dangerous, they are simply children who lack opportunities and supervision, lack education and have ended up doing what seems to be at the moment the path of minor resistance to make a living. "
