JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process: Ben: I turned myself in and I was just transported to
that jail, because it was the only jail around
here. I served 59 days prior to my sentencing
which was for 90 days.
JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested. Ben: No I turned myself in.
JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall. Ben: The only time I went to court was for the judge to
sign off on the plea agreement. My attorney
handled everything else, that is the reason I only
went to court that one time.
JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of? Ben: Original charges were aggravated assault without
an intent to kill, burglury of an occupied
structure, simple battery and trespassing.
Burglury was dropped, and I was convicted of
trespassing, aggravated assault without intent to
kill and simple battery.
