I had to go to court today and according to my lawyer I was going to lose and go to jail for 4 1/2 years and I should have taken the offer of 6 months in jail when it was offered. I refused to say I was guilty when I wasn't, so I was expecting to go to jail for 4 1/2 years. In the court room they found a problem with my file and the trial couldn't continue. this would be the third time everything would have to start over from scratch. the prosecutor didn't want to go through all this again, so offered to give me probation instead of jail time if I would just plead guilty. I told him it was a matter of pride, which I quickly swallowed and took the offer. I'm boring in real life so probation isn't a problem. the only problem is that now I am an official felon. How much more do you look down on me with that label?
