We had a busy day in Judge Mott's court this morning. My refugee did not appear although his interpreter was hear. Upon calling him, he said he was ill. I responded by asking when he thought he was planning on informing me that he was not coming to court. I had a second pain in the ass who couldn't make up his mind to plead or go to trial. I finally told him to sit in the court room and decide between the two options he was given. He, at last, determined he would plead guilty. He did so, was sentence, and obtained a deferred judgment. All was well with him. Then, since the county attorney's office is changing their attorneys' job descriptions again, the county attorney taking the indictable docket was not familiar with the files, everything else was continued. Oh well. Several went to jail, but for the usual stuff of owi, omvls, etc. Happy New Year.
