I am wondering what to do with my papers. Seriously, I need to get most of my worldly (yes, I used that purposely) possessions. Basically, I have two sets of papers. One is the actual legal stuff, including transcripts, lawyer letters, and other legal stuff (technical term).
Some of this legal stuff I will actually travel with. The rest needs to be sent to a location where it may then be sent to a lawyer that I will hopefully have when the Feds rule in my favor and force NY State to "resentence" me. Again, what I am hoping for is that the Feds will rule I had ineffective counsel and then NY will have to start over.
Since the double punishment issue should have been handled pretrial, what I would hope is that the court would appoint a lawyer, he would file the proper motion, the NY court would be forced to admit and "drop" the NY changes with prejudice, meaning they cannot bring them back up. If that motion failed, then I would immediately file an appeal, still before they could move forward to the "trial" stage. This could take a few months, and I am not sure what resources my appointed lawyer would need.
My other papers are basically all the cards and letters I have received (including that thirty-day supply of returned letters) plus newspaper clippings. This resource is also something for future blog/book use. This stuff would be less than half of a ten-ream 8 1/2 x 11 paper box. This stuff I would rather have you hold than Mom and Dad since they might "lose" it.
There is certainly nothing earth shaking in this box, and you probably know most of what is in there since most of the issues discussed by the few others I have corresponded with I have shared with you. I was reviewing some of it today, and some of the issues are really good and was surprised by the number of "short notes" with apologies from Mom and Dad for not writing more or more often. Ah, such is life.
By the way, I have lost over ten pounds and am now tipping the scales at 203, down from 217. The walking is working, but has also increased my appetite.
I also have some books that I will send to Mom and Dad in the hope that they will be the start of my "free man" library. I am going to dive into a book now and try to clear out some of the funk.
I will be writing more tomorrow and have some interesting articles form the latest CFO magazine. Interesting stuff on tech hiring and outsourcing, but that will be for tomorrow’s writing!
