Interview with Allie and Jason

JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process:
Allie: I was originally charged with burglary and obtaining money under false pretenses. I was in a financial crime ring, checks, payday loans with false documents, fake id's.
Jason: It was quick and somewhat efficient. id give them a thumbs up all in all. it was held in the online court room and quick and speedy. not many choices to go bye either your guilty or not as usual but very abrupt after you plea not much information give in on your status

JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested.
Allie: Detectives tracked me down at my apartment and arrested me. I wasn't expecting them to come at all. I had written some bad payday check loans, and thought they would just be sent to collections.
Jason: i was arrested during an incident at a store and was brought to county jail. i was not only miss treated in this incident but systematically over looked by my determiners until the police came. they did not follow proper procedures as i know them and were overly aggressive but at last i did do wrong..

JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall.
Allie: I had an arraignment 2 or 3 days after being arrested. That was on a video screen in a room in the jail. I didn't even leave the jail for court. I ended up getting an OR (release on my own recognizance) at the arraignment. I was released a day and 1/2 later. I was not supposed to drink or use drugs, and I failed a drug test. I was put back in jail for 84 days.
Jason: court was long yet quick i was brung to an empty room with serveral other imates were we were all cuffed to the hips and shackled by the ankle. then loaded into a van depending on which court we were headed to. at court we waited and were meet by our public defenders ( Jessica longly is not a good one by the way) and then brung in one by one into court. i was one of the last ones and it took 2 hrs to see the judge.

JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of?
Allie: Original charges 2 counts felony burglary, 2 county felony obtaining money under false pretenses. I worked out a deal so 4 felonies to 1 felony which was uttering a forged instrument.
Jason: my original charges were petty larceny and batter with possession plus a violation.
