Frustrated doesn’t begin to describe how I feel right now. I registered with Offender Connect after I wasn’t able to talk to Alberto last night when he called 5 times, and today my account showed the credit available. I should have been about to talk to him when he called me in the afternoon during my lunch break, but for some reason the call wouldn’t connect. So I called Offender Connect and they stated that I had the wrong number attached to my account. Considering how precise I am when it comes to things like this I highly doubt it, but the CSR I talked to said that she would fix it however it could take between 2 and 24 hours to be effective. I did check my account online 4 hours later and there was no phone number whatsoever attached to my account so I added my cell phone again. I finally got to talk to him when he called at 8 pm, so at least that was something. Apparently they brought Alberto before a judge again yesterday who told him he could wait 90 days or he could wait 10 days for the sheriff to send someone to go and get him. I guess I’m not sure what that was about or what was the difference, but I’ll make sure I find out tomorrow since he chose to wait 10 days. Lance is of the opinion that this will quash the warrant, so the criminal matter will no longer be blocking our immigration proceedings. I wonder what Brian, the criminal defense attorney, will say about this new situation.
Yet another irritating thing that happened today was when I was making phone calls to find out who made the arrest on Tuesday and where I could get a copy of the record. I called the police first, and they said to check with county. I talked to the county and they said to call the police. When I spoke to the records department in the police station they couldn’t pull it up by name, so I had to call the county back and get the case number. After I had the case number I called the records department of the police again and was told they cannot tell me anything about the record, I would have to go down and get it a copy of it in person. At this point I was pretty irritable and said that this feat would be quite impossible since I was in Minnesota, not Texas. I was then told that was not her problem and I would have to send a written request by mail only with a $1.50 to receive a copy. I hope for her sake the police report states that Alberto turned himself in and that he said he had no intention of entering the United States illegally.
