How much power should judges have?
To the editor:
Time went along until my next court appearance. I got very sick and ended up in three different hospitals in three months, not even knowing if I was even coming home. When I did return home, I had an appointed lawyer who did nothing on my behalf.
I’m on oxygen and different pills, so they sentenced me to six months of house arrest at $140 a week. I know people who have done much worse and got less [punishment].
I would like to know, and I believe others would also, when is a person capable of making their own decisions regarding their rights? It’s not fair; because we all pay.
