to hire a real attorney. The real attorney is friends with the bogus judge and if the price is right, cash of course, you can get out of just about anything.
My friend Arthur was like that. He went to Rummel came from a good Lebanese Christian family. Got into selling coke.
Got arrested leaving the airport with over a kilo. Was looking at years in prison. Paid the top NOLA criminal lawyer, $30,000, of which 20k went to a judge.
We was in the same drug court classes as my roommate who got popped with four tabs of X.
Though like most in his profession, he died in jail. Was in a car accident, arrested for possession and influence and past warrants, and died of internal bleeding in OPP.
I forgot his last name, I'm sure people who graduated Rummel in the early 90's knew him. His best friend was a Korean named Wally Chang, who also was in the same stuff, and died due to drugs.
Both of these guys never needed to get involved, they just used their parents money to buy in and be "down".
