Having had a gun pointed in my face during robbery attempts several times in my lifetime, your young friend should seek a lawyer who can advise her if her options. She has a LOT of life left and needs to choose a different trajectory if she doesn't want to be a product of the system.

good luck

Hey East Coast, it's 420.

I think making some convicts pay some/all of their expenses is a great idea. And there should be tests for mandated classes.

The free ride has got to stop somewhere.
I'm shocked your mistake came this far:

12 x $30 = $360



I do agree with this being a "lump sum" though. However once again let me point out your mathematical error!!!

Wow. It is sad that I made the error, and that no one else caught it until now. Duh.

Let's see, on probation for an armed robbery and gets busted for drugs. Seems like this person not only needs a good lawyer but some real help getting her life together. She is either running with the wrong crowd or she is the wrong crowd.

Whoever she gets, it needs to be very soon. I'd imagine she has some decent chances of staying out since she isn't already in custody. If she walks, she needs a real butt-whippin to get her head out of her rear end.

She wasn't very clear about this. She kind of mentioned is related to how much the money was robbed. She had to pay it back over time, and she had to pay for other friends who was in charge of the robbery. Does it even make sense?

Yes she has been in some kind of class and drug test program every wed.

In addition, she has just started a drug ed class every Tuesday and Thursday evening (10 weeks total), hoping that might help her case.

She said it is $400 per month. Also she is doing in drug test every week, in addition to the class.

About the drug violation, she was OD and sent to hospital because someone slipped something to her drink. That is how she failed the drug test.

Now she starts taking a drug class every Tuesday and Thursday (2 hrs each time) for 10 weeks, hoping that will help her probation violation case.

And, why is she spending money on drugs when she knows it could get her in trouble. She needs to grow up. Sounds like she's trying.
Please see my previous message for her situation.
