Interview with Earl

JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process:
Earl: I'm not sure exactly what your looking for, but all of my time I've done was awaiting trial and sentencing. Basically when I came in I was placed in a holding cell/drunk tank. I remained in there for probably an hour or longer. I was then fingerprinted and then dressed out and took down to population.

JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested.
Earl: The first time I was arrested, I was picked up for a DUI along with many other charges. My bond was then revocted on a prior 3rd Degree Burglary. The next time I was picked up the investigators came to my house to question me about a burglary. They had a warrant for my arrest and then took me in.

JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall.
Earl: Before we went we had to put on black and white striped jumpsuits over our regular uniforms. We had two benches that was just for us to sit on. We did the normal roll call and then followed regular court proceedings. We was not allowed to look or talk to anyone else in the court room or they would take us back to jail and we would miss our court date.

JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of?
Earl: I had a bunch of misdemeanors and was charged with 3rd Degree Burglary and Poss. of a Controlled Substance the first time. I was just convicted of 3rd Degree Burglary and Poss. of Controlled Substance. The second time I was charged with 3rd Degree Burglary and convicted of the same.
