JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process: Natalie: The pre-sentencing process took approximately 10
calendar days from beginning to end. Being
processed into the facility went smoothly and only
took about four hours from beginning to end.
During this time, dinner was being served and the
officer that was booking me in made sure that I
got a dinner tray, rather than just a sandwich.
JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested. Natalie: No. I was actually picked up on violation of
probation, when requested by my Brazoria County PO
to come into the Angleton facility, at whichpoint, I
was arrested on a probation violation and was taken
into custody. The arresting officer then transported
me to the Brazoria County jail for processing.
JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall. Natalie: The actual court proceedings required a transfer
from the county jail to the courthouse via van. The
inmates were tethered together in cuffs and shackles
in multiples of threes and fours. We were then taken
to a holding cell prior to being taken in front of
the judge for sentencing.
JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of? Natalie: DWI. This instance was violation of probation due to
another DWI offense in Harris County.
