There needs to be something remarkable about your first blog.
It sets the tone and expectation of what is to come.
I don’t have all the answers, but I can share my thoughts about being prosecuted for a crime I did not commit.
From what I understood, I didn’t fit the stereotypical defendant.
I am caucasian. I am female. I am well-educated.
My blog is about who I was and who I am now as a person who was unexpectedly prosecuted in the US criminal justice system. It is a reflection of facts, emotions, choices and transformation.
My hope is that I can:
- consistently convey detailed information and sentiments that will make you feel like you were in the room when “it” happened;
- make you feel like a defendant in a “moment”, but know that you will never truly know what you would do unless you were the one charged.
- evoke enough emotion for you to make a decision if this is something that resonates with you or not and if it does, give you some ideas on how to take action.
