Out of 5 pending charges of Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon, only 4 of them were decided to be dismissed as a plea bargain for my Conviction. I was 20 years old and I signed for deferred adjudication probation. I was young and never imagined to be in a legal battle of my life. I now realize I was only made to be a number in the conviction rate in Texas. It hurts me terribly, you can only imagine. If you met me, you would never think I was a felon.
