Jacob wrote to me today, and since he can’t access the internet anymore he asked me to post this.

After a few months, I tried to figure out why I took a plea with such a gaping hole. My PD, a government agent, was working with the prosecutor in some faction to make sure I did time. They also threatened to subpoena my phone, and that would have been bad for many reasons. I don’t have remorse for what I did; I have remorse for taking a plea that will carry with me the rest of my life. I remember being at the courthouse, the day I took the plea, and I contacted Clyde Freeman from, “Never Take A Plea,” crying outside not knowing what to do. Do I admit guilt to something I didn’t do? Something I didn’t think was wrong? I said during sentencing, “I didn’t hurt anyone, and there wasn’t any victim to my crime.”

He told me to take the plea, and get to N.C. as soon as possible, which helped things with me, but I still felt dirty. I asked the prosecutor straight up, “Can I plea without admitting guilt?” The Alfred plea, and that was pretty much was what it was. I was tricked and I messed up, being someone who fights police abuse shouldn’t mess in any gray area, and what was ordered is not relevant, there was no victim; there was no meth. Yet, I lost 6 months of my life, because of an arbitrary law?

During sentencing, I was thinking “cool, I’m only going to get probation or maybe 60 days in county.” The F3, Intent to Possess was dropped, too. The prosecutor then stated, “We the State, recommend 2 years, as Jacob has shown no remorse.” Conway, the Judge (loves my brother, thought he should have been paid for his crimes) said prison wouldn’t help me, and I “needed help.” My only words to him were, “Thank you for saving my life, but please don’t ruin it. (I was addicted to Benzo’s at the time, quite bad). He suggested placement to a CBCF, where I almost got kicked out because they thought Cop Block was a militia, and this seriously put in the hole my case. My case manager, who is now a part of Cop Block, called the warden and her lawyer, and got me out. It happened because I went limp during a skit pretending to be someone getting harassed by the cops.

I’ve been out since April 11th and enjoying semi-freedom. I did nothing morally wrong, and was punished with a $6,000 fine as well as three years of being on probation. I did not have the courage Ademo and Rich Paul pulled off, yet. I did get off lucky, but how lucky? I can’t own a firearm legally or do many things I planned on before.

The custody break would have saved me, but I was too big of a pussy to take it to trial, and risk my friends’ safety.

I believe Ademo referred to it as the Prisoners Dilemma on Kokesh’s program and my line in the sand was having others be punished for government evil, and risk my own butt! (self-preservation) One year was my line.
