As a novice, I did not know what to do. I called the bondmen and bonded out my son. He was very nice and sympathetic. He even recommended an attorney. I thought that God was giving me a break. I had no idea what to do or who I should turn to. All I knew what that I needed to get some legal representation for my son. What I should have done was go immediately to members of my church for advice. I do not know why I didn’t do that. I guess that it had a lot to do with pride. I had some money saved and used it to bond out my son. It cost me almost $3000 dollars. I then called the attorney that the bomdsmen recommended. I thought that everything was going to be alright. I thought that I made the right decision. Once again, I was wrong.
PS: I should note here that this started taking place around June 2011.
