They Have no Compassion. No Feelings

Sean almost died in their custody. He complained of pain and fever. They took him to court instead. He had cancer. They delayed his treatment. If it wasn’t for a few programs, my money and some good doctors, Sean would be dead.

He finally got to a halfway house. Of course you have to give them anything you make for rent and your probation. He wanted to give his mother some money because she is living from hand to mouth. Now he’s in jail for another six months.

Her story is here also.

Another kick in the head from the judge

August 15, 2016.

Another meeting with the judge, another kick in the head.

Why didn’t he mention the mandatory drug class a few months ago when Liz had a formal meeting with him? A three month class. No details really. He says Liz agreed to it when she was released on probation in 2012. She has no paperwork from that time.

Liz has to get by for another three more months before the judge will consider letting her off of probation. Since her last meeting with the judge she has lost part of her left foot to diabetes. Her pain and suffering mean nothing to judge wheeler. No caps for him. No respect for him. If she had a lawyer; maybe she could fight his mean justice.

More to follow.

What a Farce

We finally got to a point where Liz’s probation fees were all caught up. I helped her pay almost $400 to get a meeting to decide if she could finally get an early release from probation. However nothing is easy with Judge Wheeler in Abilene.He doesn’t care that she has untenable expenses trying to fulfill the requirements of probation and health and living needs. When on probation you are required to have phone and a place to live, with an address, where they can come and scoop you up if you violate your agreement. By agreement I mean pay probation fees on time and never miss a meeting with your probation officer and not fail a urine analysis (which you also have to pay for). Those expenses alone would be a burden on a probationer who can find a decent job and/or a family willing and able to assist.  Liz isn’t that fortunate.

What is wrong with you Judge Wheeler?  Have you no sympathy for her situation. She has had to have surgeries to resolve infections left from a spider bite, She was finally diagnosed with  diabetes after she was not able to heal from the previous surgeries, she has had to have surgery to alleviate symptoms of Cushing’s  disease.

I have spent many thousands of dollars to give Liz a chance at getting by from day to day. It is way past time for her to be free of this judge and his government cronies. Anyone with a heart should be able to see that Liz has suffered more than anyone should when she was only trying to help her son with his drug addiction.

All they want is their freaking fees. She can’t afford them WTH!!!

TEXAS are you listening?

This is incredible. Liz is on probation for a crime she didn’t commit. She’s ill with Diabetes and Cushings syndrome. Her meds and diabetes supplies are over $1000. She makes $10 an hour when she can work. And they keep making her pay fees!!! It’s freaking stupid.  She can’t afford this stuff so I keep paying for her. I’m tired of these idiots. She needs to be given her life back NOW!!!.

TEXAS are you listening?



We Want a Criminal Defense lawyer.

Dateline: Texas — We want Justice isn’t working. I should have come up with a better name.
Liz needs someone to help get her off of probation. Sean is on his way to Safep because he can’t pay his probation fees. He’s been clean for over 3 years.
No one returns calls, no one sets up a free consultation.

Bad headlight. Bad trouble

40. After you’ve been put into the police car, what happens to you?

After the mug shots and finger printing. I guess you get jail clothes. You are allowed one phone call. If you can call Perry Mason and speak to Della Street you will probably get off. If you are a normal person in a strange town, who do you call? IF you are down on your luck, who do you call?

Liz, how did this particular county jail treat you?

Well … thats it … you’ve answered your question.  After you’ve been placed into the police car, the cop drives

you to the facility where they take pictures and run your fingerprints through their nationwide database system.

The process is different in different jails, but between the time you enter the jail and the time you’re housed

you’ll do the following things: mug shots and fingerprints, meet with a nurse for basic medical history and blood

pressure tests, “dressing in” where you get clothes and other necessities like dental care and soap.  In a big

county like Harris County here in Houston, you’ll have your first court appearance before you get housed, which is where you can enter a plea, charges are formally put on you and you’ll hear about your bail amount … in a smaller facility like Taylor County, bail is already set and that first appearance wont be for a while.  If you’re
just passing through a town, its certainly hard to get bail … after all, bail is a promise to appear in court on a certain day, and if you’re just passing through, that means you just have to pass right on back for court … you
don’t know anyone in town, and have no ties so its hard for a judge to accept that you’ll be back, so bail is usually higher for people from out of town.  You hit the nail on the head about the bondsmen … its next to impossible to secure bail from a bondsman because they’re putting money up for bail on a person who might be hundreds of miles away the next day, which is too risky a move for most of them.
Individuals who are broke will go through that very thing.  If you cannot afford bail, you do not get out of jail … its that simple.
As far as treatment … I could make this question into an entire book. The second you are arrested your rights disappear. I has mistakenly thought ..and had been told my entire life that you are innocent until proven guilty ..Good luck on that one ..Most cases never come close to that point. You take a plea to get out of jail because you either do not get bail/bond, or it is too much money or even that a bondsman will not bond you. It isn’t as if most criminals or drug addicts have any assets to put up against it, and definitely most do not have any credit left to speak of …If you are extremely fortunate you may have a family member or friend that will ..So, how many people are willing to loose their jobs, home, car, children and so on to sit in jail and wait about a year for a trial. Speedy trial? I got my first pre indictment deal over 3 months after I was arrested.
