Soon, Billy was on the wrong side of the law. He was hauled up by the police
at a nightclub. Billy was caught for being an underage nightclub patron and also
for taking drugs. Billy's devastated parents took him to a doctor. On the
doctor's advice, he was enrolled for counseling sessions. All their attempts to

toll on his health.
One day, Billy became very ill and had to be rushed to hospital. After
several tests, he was diagnosed with AIDS. Billy knew that his days were
numbered. On the spur of the moment, he wanted to go home and apologize to his
parents. He knew it would break their hearts to see him in the condition he was
in. However, he could not find the willpower to break away from his life of
crime despite his parents' pain.
As his dependence on drugs grew, he fell deeper into crime. Robbery,
housebreaking and extortion were added to his list of crimes. High on the wanted
list, Billy began a hide-and-seek game with the authorities.
One day, Billy was waiting for a potential client. He was in possession of
dangerous drugs. Acting on a tip-off, a police team arrived and arrested Billy.
The High court imposed the capital punishment.
Before he was sent to the gallows, Billy met his parents. As he said his final
farewell, his last words to them were 'crime does not pay'.
