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.
