  • Remember those &%$#@*& dopers? Well....

    At their hearing today, the DA offered them a plea bargain, which they accepted. DCS has their own, separate case in the works, so the kids are with grandparents for now.

    The 'dad' pled to:

    Possession Schedule VI(simple)
    Child neglect (x3)
    Reckless endangerment (x3)
    Possession of drug paraphernalia

    Sentence:

    11/29(suspended)plus applicable fines on all charges; must serve 60 days, 24 days credit on time served. 30 days in intensive drug rehab may be substituted for remainder of sentence.

    The 'mom' pled to:

    Child neglect (x3)

    Sentence:

    11/29 plus applicable fines. Suspended to time served, pending 30 days in-house drug rehab.

    The Public Defender is appealling the 'dad's ' sentence, claiming it is 'unfair'.

    ^ 11/29? Years? I should hope so.

      11/29? Years?
      I wish! '11/29' refers to '11 months/29 days'.

        Ah, thanks for explaining.

        Uh ... couldn't they just say "one year" and save themselves some time?

          I don't know about Tn, but in Tx, when you calculate time for jail or prison sentences, 11 months, 29 days means just that.

          1 year can be served at 2 days credit for 1 day served, or even 3 for 1.

          But specifying the exact sentence (11/29) means that that is what they will serve, if the other conditions are not met.

          It get extremely confusing and frustrating at times, but that's the way it's figured.
