Interview with Chuck and Blake

JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process:
Chuck: I was charged with a crime and notified of that so I turned myself in to the jail.
Blake: I was taken before a magistrate, read a copy of the charges and then given a bail. I was then taken into a big holding area along with other detainees and forced to wait until they called me up front to get my diagnostic info and my health care info.

JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested.
Chuck: I turned myself into the jail.
Blake: Me and my friend got into an argument a d the police were called, they came and investigated at first but no one was arrested. After they left some more words were exchanged and those words led to a physical altercation in which the police were resent to the house and I was arrested.

JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall.
Chuck: I went to court a couple months after that. I was in jail about a month. I got out of jail by requesting that court release me.
Blake: I was awakened around 4am and sent to the bullpen whereby we waited for marshalls to come call our name and divide us up into groups depending on what court and/ or judge you were going to see. You talked to your lawyer and was brought in front of closed circuit TV to see the judge.

JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of?
Chuck: Charged with Larceny. I ended up not being convicted of anything because my charges were not processed.
Blake: aggravated assault, charges were dropped.
