No I have not.  I do know a lot of people who have and they don't want to go back!

No I have never been to jail.  But I do know a number of people who have.  I work with the prison system and was also a police detective for a number of years.  I am amazed at the number of people who are there because they did not have the money for a good attorney, the are innocent but have no one to speak for them.  Or who have attorneys who are so busy that they tell them to  just throw themselves on the mercy of the court.  The courts frequently do not have any mercy.  One young woman I met (others also) was so intimidated by the whole thing she plead guilty because she was afraid at how long they were going to put her away if she went to jury trial. (This was not a stupid girl, she has a Masters degree)   They let her out after 3 years (told her she was going in for 12 years) and then the state had to pay her several millions because of 1. her innocence and 2. the poor way they had handled the entire thing.  If you have never been involved in (or your family) has never been involved you just tell the truth to everyone you see.  Do not say anything to anyone WITHOUT YOUR attorney present.  Police will twist things around to get cases off of their desks.  I have seen a family with an abused child, the entire family blamed the babysitter.  Eventually it came out that it was the child's father.  But by then she had been in prison 3 years, time she will not get back.   If the truth had been told to begin with by the father she would not have went to prison (he convinced the family that things they saw were not quite what they thought they saw).  The family would have been mandated to take parenting classes, social services would have come into the home  weekly for about a year to make sure everything was ok.   You see things like this a few times and it really changes your view of the court system.  I know there are really good people in the courts too, these other guys just make them look bad.
