Interview with Roger

JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process:
Roger: Before being sentenced I was put on probation for five months. After breaking my bond I was put on house arrest for three months. I had to go to extra hearings to have my bond reset and they moved my sentencing hearing back. There were extra costs incurred as well.

JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested.
Roger: Yes. They came and knocked on my door. They took me down to the station for questioning. They asked about what happened so I gave them my statement and they gave me paperwork about going to the magistrate and about the charges I would be facing. Surprisingly they were very polite about the whole thing.

JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall.
Roger: Even after having to go to eight different hearings court was still scary and nerve racking. There were other people being sentenced each time and hearing their crimes and sentences was interesting. A lot of the time the sentences didn't match the crime so it gives you a sense of false hope.

JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of?
Roger: I had 17 charges. 5 counts of corruption of a minor, 5 counts indecent assault, 5 counts sexual assault, 1 count statutory assault and 1 count ludeness. I actually just got charged with 1 count corruption of a minor.
