UPDATE: from my trial information

UPDATE 11/12/11:  well, now it's set for 12/5.  @ 11. and i should take my bag with.  they had better not give me 2 years.  like my lawyer said.  time to call on God.

UPDATE 9/23/11:  my lawyer's secretary tells me today that trial date is set for 9/29 @ 9.  my heart started in

overdrive.  i don't know what to think about it.  it's like i need to cover my bases in case they take me away right away.   i doubt they'll do that.  if they've got ANY compassion.  but who knows.  only the judge knows.  and i hear that i drew a good and fair judge.  she's fair in all respects.  so long as you're not trying to dupe her.  respect.  like i've always said.

UPDATE 8/29/11:  my lawyer tells me that their offer of dropping it down to 2nd, and 7 days, IN JAIL.  she didn't accept that, and frankly, neither did i.  i did manage to get 2 more supporting affidavits, another one from johnson, and one from my driver...  who knows, i may beat this yet.  wouldn't THAT be something.  i wonder if their fears about this case (everyone is now gonna claim sleepwalking).  no decision has been made yet, and to my knowledge theresa is still negotiating with him.  hopefully i'll hear some thing this week.  i hope i get some lead time should we go to trial.

i've gotta face an OWI 3rd in july. the trial information has given me some data that i have been wanting for a while. history of criminal activities. arrest record iow.

way back in 75, 12/14 to be exact, i was charged with taking a vehicle without the owner's consent, and interstate transport of a stolen vehicle.

then in 1988, on 4/29, i was arrested in san francisco for PC-force/adm not firearm: gb:I likely dispo:pros rel-det only/vic unaval/decline pros

and i also found out my name back in the days - i was nehemiah mahbuballah mahana. it's a long story. going back to marshalltown and hashem ghoulem abdullah. and omid kahkesh. the only two people i truly fell head over heels over. anyway, back to the paperwork the county attorney was kind enough to disclose. there's a limit of six years, not twelve. unless i see differently, the legislature could have increased that. i'll have to check the web. anyway, i was nehemiah for about 5 years. nick for short (nick as in nickname).

then back in 79, 3/8 to be precise, NYSP (new york state police & not the customs agents) stopped me coming back from montreal on the train, with 'stolen' credit cards. never got anything but released. i was a pretty convincing pretty boy back then. it was like i could talk my way out of anything. anyway, i had the cards from a trick of mine in chicago. really forgot that i had them. i know i used one of 'em once, to fly from mason city to new york for new years. got by with that.

but back to nick's trouble in '75, that was due to my infatuation with this fare i picked up in dees moines. i drove cab at the time. and he somehow convinced me to move to hawaii with him. hell, how could anybody much less me, say no to such a hottie. he was supposedly from hawaii and had lots of 'people' out there waiting for him. so we did our best to get to las vegas. he ends up disappearing for a few hours, and finding me with his 'new car'. i should have known it was stolen. but the plan was to drive to LA and catch a boat out to hawaii. i think the best thing that happened was when he got stopped for speeding on the 405 in orange county. we were there over christmas, and extradicted back to las vegas. i somehow got off of all the charges - again, my ass was in fine shape back then. anyway, i don't know what happened to the other kid. he kinda disappeared.

so that takes me back to vegas in early 79, which sounds about right. i stayed in vegas for about three months that time - before me and 2 other hispanics decided to thumb it to new york, and get famous. so, still in vegas, i worked as a houseboy to some fatcat out west of town. gave me a car to use, a chrysler cordoba (remember them?) to drive around in and everything. place to stay. pool to enjoy. i was living high on the hog during that time period. something that i wasn't used to, hitchhiking from the west coast to the east coast like it was a trip across town.

some of you have asked, how did it all start. well, i'll tell ya, it was back in 75 when i was in des moines, working for blue cross/blue shield. i went to the bathroom one day, and never went back to my desk. i was out on the interstate in less than an hour, with everything i owned. where i went, i couldn't begin to tell ya. out west i'm sure. i always had good luck hitching around california. it was like they were a different breed out there.
