Another Plea Bargain Gone Wrong

originally posted 4/18/2009

MY SON’S CASE WAS 10 YEARS AGO. IT WAS CONSENSUAL. HIS COURT APPOINTED LAWYER TOLD HIM TO PLEAD GUILTY SO HE WOULD SERVE NO TIME. AND HE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND WHAT THE CONSEQUENCE WAS. PROBATION WAS NO PROBLEM, BUT TO GET FINGER PRINTED EVERY THREE MONTHS WAS A PROBLEM. HE WAS ARRESTED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO BECAUSE OF THE NEW LAWS. HE HAS TRIED TO JOIN THE FIRE DEPT, HE CAN’T. HE WANTS TO DEER HUNT WITH HIS SON AND CAN’T. HE CAN’T WORK ON SCHOOL PROPERTY OR WORK ON GOVERNMENT JOBS. THIS PUTS OUR SMALL FAMILY BUSINESS IN A BIND.
