This AM I placed the phone call to the US Marshal Service to begin the process of "surrender" to federal custody. I am to serve 5 month term of incarceration as part of the sentence on my "attempted tax evasion" conviction.
Being a 56-year old, white collar criminal with arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism (in remission), and a history of bi-polar illness it will be an interesting process which I hope to document for later journalization. As I have said many times since the inception of this blawg--learn from my example. Do not do what I did. My daughter will give birth to my first Grandchild in my absence. Somehow, my wife with the support of friends and family will manage our home, and, our two teens, while continuing to be the Blond Super Lawyer.
Since I started to write this post, I received a call back from the US Marshal service. I am reporting to the US Marshal's Service locally on November 15, 2010 to begin my 5 month sentence in custody. I may or may not sporadically update the Bad Lawyer blawg depending on all the things I don't know and can't predict.
Please keep me and my family in your prayers. Thanks.
