JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested.
Elizabeth: The police came to my mother house first for me with the warrant because that was one of the addresses that I used so they went their first with the warrant but I wasn't there, so then they came to the next address that they had and I was there and they served me with my warrant I had for missing court.

JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall.
Elizabeth: I hate being in court, and I definitely hate jail, but of course you do the crime you do the time, I made bad decisions and bad choices that is why I ended up in jail, because the charges was minor to me , and if I would have just went to court like I was suppose to I wouldn't have to say I hate court, I don't like when you have to get up early in the morning to get ready for court to start at 10a.m.

JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of?
