Do people in jail get treated fairly ?
First time in jail and I say no!
My story can happen to anyone. I have been going through a divorce for over 2 years, almost lost everything I had, and was still trying to get at least 50% custody of our daughter-our last child at home. I started with a bad lawyer, hired an expensive lawyer, soon couldn't afford her anymore and had no choice but to represent myself.---Big mistake.-- The biased judge "rubberstamped " everything his good-ole boy attorney drew up without even letting me see it or respond. Dumb me thinking at least I could talk twice the time representing myself and being me!--WRONG-- I didn't get to rebuke the lies and when I tried..... I got contempt of court. (10 days to be exact-good thing they handcuffed me when they did or I might not get a chance to be on the outside and tell my story!) I did not be disrespectful, I just was railroaded and felt like it was me against the world to see my daughter again after the possible drug lie.....Hair sample proved that wrong, daughter "afraid of boyfriend"......my kids used to love him 10 years prior and he since moved out, and lastly until they come up with who knows what........believed mental problems......I think I am normal I haven't done anything crazy and am upstanding in the community. Why is it you are guilty until proven innocent? Why does one have to wait for months for the next court date to prove wrong while relationship with child goes downhill? Meanwhile spouse also sells joint assets and there is no way to enjoy that money to represent yourself? I always try to look on the bright side, after being wrongly in jail and hearing other jail/court/police brutality/$ and prescription drugs missing in personal possession horror stories, I thank that dishonest judge,my lack of representation, and the many egotistically rough police for my new perspective. My new mission in life is to
"TALK ON THE OUTSIDE TO HELP THOSE ON THE INSIDE". I would love to hear your comments or stories and you are welcome to contact me if you would like to join my new forum. I am ready to be proactive with mistreatment, changing laws for visitations, custody, bankruptcy, anything that is logical but our justice system lost their logic when they decide our justice.
