Lots of places have laws about hidden compartments that could be used to hide drugs. Any use of coroplast could get that thrown at you.

Sounds like you were in a holding cell more or less vs prison. Its not that bad either way, there usually enough gay men in the population that the rape stuff is a non issue.
When I faced homelessness, I joined the Army, which fed me, gave me a place to sleep, and usually let me turn out the lights. Also, my clothing looks way better! Hopefully healthier women attracted to this type of man in uniform.

I was in a holding cell and then... I do not know, my own holding cell? I lovely concrete bed, but the foam pad was decent.

I had read 7 Horrifying Things You Didn't (Want to) Know About Prison | Cracked.com and I read it again, along with related pages. That former guard says most sex is consensual. Are we finished with this topic? Please?

I'm acquainted with people in the community who have been into all kinds of scrapes with the law. Some have done a little time here and there, 6 months, 2 years. They get jobs. They go to school. It's not a permanent brand, is my point.

Good luck. (By which I mean get a good damned scheister lawyer!)

The guard that processed me said my mugshots will not be published. He also said that first-time offenders are offered community service without anything on their record, but that is apparently if they only cite you for one thing.

I am just going to assume fate intentionally hid this from me: 4 Things You Should Know Before Spending a Weekend in Jail | Cracked.com

Fat Charlie, fill in any gaps with body filler?

"So, to recap, we have a man who's been accused of rape standing in front of a jailhouse shower clutching a broomstick that he's promised to "show me how to use" if I join him in that shower.

Cobb, I have read several articles on Cracked since the first one that I posted, but have not actually read the second one yet. I was going to, but a young lady was waiting.

One girl that I dated a year or two ago said that I am now a "bad boy," however, that seems to be all that she had to say. Everybody else says that it does not make sense that it happened to me, and so far, every girl has accepted it.

So far I have been asked three times if I was arrested for ecomods (or hypermiling). No, the only vehicle-related question they asked was if there was anything in my car that could injure them. That was very difficult for me because vehicles injure people all of the time and idiots injure themselves all of the time for no reason. He said "Sir, I need a yes or no!" He did not tear apart my car looking for rock candy or whatever and did not close his door on his head or anything. I asked what would happen to my car and they just said they would take care of it. That did not comfort me at all, but as I mentioned before, it cost $62.20 to get my car. I was just happy to get my car back.

They never said anything about my ugly airdam and grill block, although those do not create any hidden compartments. My forester does have a few in the trunk, just for the tools to change a tire. Again, I guess that if you do create any, you had better fill them.

Hypermiling was not involved, either.

I agree. Very curious, maybe even provocative.

Are you out on bail with a trial pending?

Why don't you tell us what the charges are? You are innocent until proven guilty and mentioning the charges won't affect the outcome of your case any.

This is an open internet page. No lawyer will ever advise a client to go onto the open internet and start talking about your arrest and charges, and neither will any job counselor.

What you"should" of done xist was ask for advice. Then say a "friend" of yours was arrested and ticketed with reckless driving, blah, blah, blah.

Your only hope at this point is to google your situation and read about others.

If you seriously area a member of the military your best chance maybe to reenlist and serve another round if its that serious.

The arrest is a matter of public record. No one here knows XIST's actual identity. No one asked for any details that might affect the outcome of his case. I don't think his prospective future employers are going to read this forum, unless he directs them to it. Besides, they can look up his arrest record if they are so inclined, regardless of his stating it here.

However - for him to say "I was arrested" and then not say what he was arrested for, is provocative and attention seeking.

I'll stop short of saying that it borders on teasing us, or trolling.
