Interview with Tom and Odessa

JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process:
Tom: kanggaroo was a joke i had to go back and do 22 days after bailing out.thats because the person i got aressted with was on probation for cooking crank and couldn't bail
Odessa: Pre sentencing was not very stressful you are pretty much unaware of whats gonna happen, you go in front of the judge he reads you what your being charged with and appoints you a public offender.they then take you back in to a small room or hallway till everyone has went through the same process.

JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested.
Tom: no
Odessa: I was arrested while getting in my car when someone tipped me off for undercover officer fallowed me from shopping and waited till I went out the door to call out my name, witch at the time I was cuffed took to a small room then picked up by rbpd to be transported

JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall.
Tom: clean shaven
Odessa: court is awful as well, every court appernce you feel as if your being treated like the worest person ever, your sat to the side off the court room alone no talking to know one nor eye contact until your spoke to by the judge or your attorney for a brief second.court is such a fast thing your just as confussed as the day you were picked up at times.

JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of?
Odessa: burglary dropped down to petty theft with several priors.
