Interview with Shelia

JM: Tell us about the pre-sentencing process:
Shelia: The pre-sentencing process was held in a room in the jail house. It was the weekend so the judge was on video. She told me what I was being charged with and set my bail. I had warrants so she also informed me how many days I had to stay before I could be bonded out.

JM: Did you have police stop by your house for questioning? If not please give us details on how you came to be arrested.
Shelia: No. I was arrested at my house. The police raided my house and found drugs. I was questioned about the drugs. I was outside my house during a transaction and the swat team tackled me. Everyone that was involved went to jail that day and was questioned seperately and privately by the police.

JM: What was court like? Please give as many details as you recall.
Shelia: Court was held at the Randall County District Court. I arrived and sat outside the courtroom on a bench till my lawyer arrived. When my lawyer arrived we went into a conference room and discussed my plea deal. Then we went into the coutroom with a judge, a court reporter, and the defense attorneys. I plead guilty, accepted the plea, and signed paperwork.

JM: What were your original charges? What did you end up being convicted of?
Shelia: I was convicted of possesion and delivery of marijuana in a drug free zone. That is what I was charged with.
