Hello livejournal  
Well, this is my first entry on Livejournal, if you take a look at my info page, you will see that I am under house arrest in the state of indiana.
My crime was originally driving without insurance, for which I got banned, and because i had to go to work outside of the state in illinois and elsewhere, in order to support my family, I kept getting caught driving while banned for a further seven times. This made my offence serious, and I was given 4 years jail time, which I got reduced to 2 years under house arrest. I have to wear a gps bracelet, and it costs me $10 a day to pay for the house arrest, and im living at my brothers thanks to his charity. I am appealing this, as I need to be able to go out to work to look after my family.
I'm a lifecaster, and I can usually be found on www.justin.tv/jesse411 broadcasting from my webcam. The internet is my only form of contact with people, and if you fancy having a chat, feel free to drop in and speak to me at jtv.
I hope to make many new friends here!

Hi there :)
No offense taken at all by your question. You have questions, I will happily answer them - I lost my license for a year after the first time, and really needed to work (I remove asbestos out of state). I definitely think my punishment is deserved, and I was stupid to do what I did, however being under house arrest is better than being in jail, and my priority is to look after my kids, so i'm appealing to see if I can work while still under house arrest, as my old job is open for me, and I have a letter from the president of my union, supporting this.
It was a foolish thing i did out of neccessity and I am certainly not proud of it :(
Thanks for your question!

House arrest is definitely better than jail...trust me on that!

Thanks man, I spent 8 days waiting to get bailed & that was enough for me! A scary place!

I am a marijuana activist who has spent more than my fair share of time behind bars over the years. Last summer was the last time and I spent 90 days in there. I was trying real hard to get house arrest instead of jail time when I was in court...but they just weren't having it. I have plenty of experience with these sorts of things though, and I think you should have no problem getting work release. You would just have a curfew that you have to return to the confines of your home everyday monday-friday or else lol.

Firstly, I just want to say that my journal is very personal, so please don't be offended that I did not friend you back.

Hmm... I think it's interesting that that's enough reason to be placed under house arrest. In Wisconsin (where I am), you don't have to have insurance as we have a Financial Responsibility Law where you have to prove you have enough money to cover damages done to someone else, but that's it.

Sorry to hear about your situation, but good luck with everything.

Re: That sucks dude
Hi :) Thanks for the comment! Appreciated.
I am allowed as far as the mailbox and the trashbin, and thats it. I have been reading a lot, and broadcasting my webcam, talking to people online. That's pretty much how i've been passing my time. Hopefully, I can get an appeal so that I can at least get a lift to work monday to friday, and start making some money again.
