    And what were you guys saying about the criminals of Saint Mary’s? Those Calvert convicts aren’t looking much better.

  2. Anonymous on November 7, 2019 at 7:44 pm

    There are some, through no fault of their own, that have a most difficult time being up in the am. They either don’t sleep well, or don’t wake up to alarms/ whatever. If you must be in court in the am, consider this if nothing else works. Change where you sleep. Instead of sleeping at home, get ready for court the night before and ……… then drive to the courthouse & sleep in the car. That way, even if you don’t wake-up till 15 minutes before court starts ………… you’ll be right there. You won’t wake up & say oh s***, I’m gonna be late for court. How the **** am I going to get to court on time? I have to be to court on time. When you get arrested, you most likely have a court date. It could be in the morning. And, if you get a bunch of crap from sleeping in the courthouse parking lot, make a big deal out of it. What are you doing man, you can’t sleep here. I’m trying to make sure I’m on time for court. This comment was not made by a judge, a states attorney, a police officer, or a criminal defense attorney. Criminal defense attorneys are dependent on crime to have clients.

      If these dumb asses didn’t get arrested or weren’t involved in illegal activity then they wouldn’t have to wake up early to appear in court!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
