    Cindy's MP3 High Low

    Hi, my name is Cindy and I’m 15 years old. It’s my first day in jail, adult jail, and boy am I scared! I was at juvenile jail once and this isn’t anything like that place! I still can’t believe how fast all of this happened. One night I’m out dancing at an after hours club and wham, now I’m in prison for up to 22 1/2 years! I suppose you’d like to know how this happened. Well, I was leaving the after hours club when these three girls from the north side were messing with me. My friends had already left so I was alone. I pulled out my pistol which, by the way, wasn’t even loaded, and pointed it at them and told them to leave me alone. I didn’t mean anything by it. I wasn’t going to shoot them. I just wanted them to leave me alone. But I got arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. (How deadly is a gun with no bullets I asked, but that didn’t mater) Anyway, I guess last July a new law makes it so that kids that get charged with certain crimes have to go to adult jail instead of juvenile jail.  Well, I’m one of them, on my way to adult prison at age 15. I won’t get out of jail until I’m almost 40 years old!"

    I am so sorry.... im sure since you are only 15.. you knew that it was stupid to have a gun and thank goodness it was unloaded. ANd im pretty sure you had no idea how much trouble you could be facing... i do want to say to the guy from CT. How dare you talk to him like this .. he made a mistake and hes going to be suffering for it for a long time... but grow up.. what you wrote makes you look like ignorant.

    Honestly, I don't feel sorry for you. If they were harrasing you you should have gone to the police station and only get in a little trouble for being out after you are legally aloud to, but instead you are going to be in jail until your life is almost half way over(if not half way). I think that tomorrow I am going to go outside, because I have not been arrested, so im not a prisioner. I didn't pull a gun out on someone, and I have not spent a day of my life in prision, or any kind of jail.
