Interview with Charles

JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process:
Charles: I was out on bond twice. I was in jail for 18 months before getting transfered to Butner and was in a holding facility in San Antonio.

JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested.
Charles: They came ot my house at 7:30 in the morning with an arrest warrent. US Marshalls and FBI. I had no idea they were coming. They searched the house and then took me away.

JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall.
Charles: I didn't go to trial and ended up pleading guilty. I wanted to go to trial but I couldn't afford a lawyer and the public defender didn't want to do the work so he kind of intimidated me into accepting a plea cause he said I could get up to ten years if I went to trial.
