Court Date

If you're the praying sort, please take a moment for my niece. Her court date is today, and she will find out if the judge accepts her plea bargain agreement. It is most likely he/she will accept it and move on and my niece will start on 10 years' probation. However, the judge can reject it and sentence her to jail anyway...

Ironic this falls on Maundy Thursday, and I can't help but think of Jesus' betrayal. Her whole ordeal has been a huge betrayal by our legal/child protective system.

This is what weighs on my mind today.
