That's a bit vague, even for 45 bucks. All that i had already surmised. I had mentioned at 18 years of age she got into a bit of trouble and complied properly with the demands of the court. However, it is possible the judge or D.A. will take it into consideration. Your " unlikely " remark is only slightly comforting without elaboration of the kind that states maybe something like "in all my experience as a litigator in San Mateo County I have never heard of an acting judge( a sitting judge in SSF Courthouse ) who has ever imposed jailtime based on the circumstances which you have supplied." Or, do I pay extra for such an 'elaboration'? Lastly, I am not so inclined to pay for your advice if you are not a San Mateo County litigator( lest said payment is already a done deal, as it were.). Thank you for your quick response, in any case.
No, it did not help, rather I see it as a kind of reiteration. No matter,
I applaud the absence of rancor in your words for my manner is one of bluntness ( to put it mildly ), and it would not have surprised nor angered me had your words been subtly acidic--hahaha! It is my way, though; apologies.
Lastly, I had looked for, hoped for, statistics, impressions of patterns. Silly me! That data cannot be broached as it is not 'law'. Agreed.
Well, thank you. For taking the time for my badinage, that is.
Good day, sir.
