    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 know ur sentence seems harsh for u, but u have think about what u were thinking that night. If u felt that these girls were menace, y didn't u leave the club w/ ur friends? Where did u have the pistol? U could have been killed by a police officer if they would have seen you pull out the gun. A gun is always considered 2 be loaded. You got all those years, due to each charge & victim having it's own sentence. Therefore, if it would have been only one person, you would have only been charged with a little over 7 years of prison.

    One of the most basic rules of firearms is that you always treat a firearm as if it were loaded. Another rule of firearms is that you never point a firearm at something that you do not intend to shoot. If you pull a gun on someone you better know what you're getting in to!
