Gramercy, The Journey of Jack Lewis, Premieres in 1 WEEK!!!
Enjoy this sneak preview of the first chapter:
Crime to Judge Bachman was a choice. It does not matter what you see Judge Bachman for, you will see the fullest sentence for it. May god help you if it’s your third strike.
It was Jack Lewis’ third strike.
Jack Lewis in the eyes of the law, or rather Judge Bachman, was a good for nothing thief. First offense; when he was nineteen a buddy of Jack’s broke into a house and didn’t tell Jack of his intentions. Jack was standing outside when the cops rolled up. He and his friend both got five months.
Jack’s friend got knifed three days into his sentence and died on the way to treatment. He didn’t even live past the cellblock doors.
Jack served his sentence, then two weeks later Jack got caught trying to grab $500 cash from the front seat of a car by reaching in the passenger side window. It turned out to be a sting operation. Jack tried to claim entrapment and failed.
He got 5 years for attempted larceny and for violating his probation.
He got out in three years, but then he pulled another job and stole $5,000 cash from a Beverly Hills family home at gun point after a failed break in woke up the father.
The cops rolled up on Jack before he could even make it past the drive way. When Jack lived in South Central and he called the cops on his dad for beating the shit out of his mom, it took them twenty minutes. Here they were practically waiting for Jack to leave the house.
He never even knew the guy had a silent alarm. He also had no idea how much they cost.
Now Jack was here, about to stand sentence for breaking and entering and armed robbery for his third strike and was about to be sentenced to 25 to life.
When Judge Bachman banged the gavel and made the sentence official, Jack didn’t even flinch.
There was no surprise, no shock, fear, or worry in Jack’s face, and Bachman didn’t like that one bit. Bachman was used to making the baddest and toughest criminals hang their heads low in despair, yet Jack didn’t cede. Bachman couldn’t understand why, and for the rest of his term on the bench he would always be a little self conscious that he would have another Jack Lewis in his court.
