How far would you go for the one you loved? Would you risk everything you had? Your job, family, freedom? Your life? You Never Have To Remember The Truth is the true story of a man who did just that: risk it all for the love he felt for one woman. Unfortunately, that risk would find him in trouble with the law and cost him more than he knew.

I was about 11 years old when the story hit the headlines. Lawrencia “Bambi” Bembenek, a former police officer from Milwaukee, was charged and convicted of

Kelly Moran composed Nick's story so simply and with compassion that I feel into it immediately. Never hearing of Lawrencia Bembenek's case I honestly trusted justice and thought her guilty as she was convicted of murder in 1981. Nick, I assumed to be one-sided,

First product review:
"According to Nick Gugliatto, there is a lot of truth that has never been told before. Conflicting statements made by the police, witnesses, and even Lawrencia, herself. Nick still maintains that he knows Lawrencia was not guilty, but he also knows Lawrencia knew far more about the murder than she let on. Just how much was she involved in? This is Nick’s story, his words, his truth, as told to award-wi
