    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!"

    If she was charged with three counts of aggrivated assault than there must be more to this story. Its very unusual for someone to get that big of a sentance for simply pointing a gun at someone.

    well i'm from B-more maryland and i feel that the law was very bad. I'm studing law in high school. i think what happen aint really legal and i think it was slizzy. there are ways you can get out of jail. i'm studing criminal justice as a career. i think it was more to what happen then we think and you have plenty of time to find out. no one i've every new came even close to getting locked up that long for just a gun.

    Hey you shouldn't have had a gun with you at a dance club. You are lucky that you haven't been in the club when those girls where there. Second of all girl do not ever try to protect yourself wit violence. First try to talk to them and if they don't leave you alone then get somebody to help you with your problem.
