    Ernest's MP3 N/A N/A

    How's it goin?  I'm Ernest. I'm 15 years old and have never been in any trouble before. In fact, I've been on the honor roll all through high school. But now I've really got trouble.  I don't know why I did it, but on a dare from a friend, I borrowed this one neighbor's car. You see, we knew the keys were always in the ignition. Right now, I wish they weren't that day. Anyway, I guess I'm not that great of a driver yet and I accidentally went up over a curb and hit an old lady.  Geez, she's my grandma's age, 72, and I hurt her bad! The police and ambulance showed up and I was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.  And from what I understand, back in 1997 a law got passed in Arizona where this type of case has to be filed in the adult justice system! Before, I might've gotten time in the juvenile jail or put on probation, but now I'll have to serve 7-1/2 years in adult prison!
