The city of portland is wasting your tax dollars on a jury trial for disorderly conduct. Dis Con folks, Dis Con is a charge that they generally add to political arrests that they usually drop in plea bargins. There's no way that it's going to stick, so why are they bothering? I wish I knew.
I'm not suggesting that we do anything about it or anything but if you'd like to come to the trial, give me a call, (503)241-4879 and I will give you the time and place. It's just crazy that they would waste there time, energy and money on such mockery of the judical system.
Well first they sent me to community court, which is just a crock. This is were they send people with tickets for drinking in public and stuff like that. All they can do in this court is plead guilty and get community service and a writing assignment and your case will be dismissed. I had to go to this twice, once to just have my lawyer, who i meet that day, say "We'd like time for council" then again to plea not-guilty and send the case downtown. I had pre-trial downtown and then guess what the judge offered me, he said if i plea guilty he'll give me community service and a writing assignment. We'll i turned that down already and and i turned it down again. Now unless they decide to drop this, i plan to fight it all the way!
