Response to your inquiry

I’ve only listened to the 1st three episodes so far. I appreciate what you’re doing here. I am currently looking at over 300 years even though the charges are likely to be dropped because they are silly on their face. It still causes me and my family stress and this shouldn’t be happening to me or anyone else.

Love amour ,
