*my first court story*

Today, I served as the attorney for my client, the accused. It was his arraignment. After a long discussion, he decided that he wanted to admit his guilt in open court, but was scared because the penalty imposable under the law is imprisonment OR a fine.
So I told him that since he’s a first time offender and he plans to plea guilty, most likely the judge was going to just impose the fine as a penalty, in lieu of imprisonment. Still, he was still uneasy because he knew that the fine can reach up to 40K, which he can’t afford.
In my desperate attempt to give him an alternative and ultimately, help him in his problem, I scrambled the internet before the start of the hearing and found RA 11362 or the Community Service Act, a law which allows the judge to impose community service in lieu of imprisonment!

Cheering on my fellow #Texas #journos from Nashville (where I've got a delayed flite to @DallasLoveField). As a reader, I want a map with where the immigrant kids are, name of contractor, how much paid so far this year by fed taxpayers, how many kids detained. #makeithappen
@DallasLoveField I want to know EVERYTHING re these contractors. What kind of license they possess or last inspection to care for kids. I want to know who their CEOs are, what lawmakers take their money. If they apply restraints on kids. #makeithappen #Texas #journos.
@DallasLoveField #TXjournos: I want to know what capacity is for each center. I want to know which #Texas, fed agency certified them. I want to SEE every PDF that details all protocols of feeding, caring for these kids. I want staffer/doctor/kid ratios. Names of all subcontractors. #MakeItHappen
