JUSTICE is served.....kinda

So for those of you who have been following me on this wild journey of getting your idenity stolen, you will be happy to know that my "not so look alike"impersonator will be spending time behind bars. I went to court last week for the final hearing/sentencing of Margaritte Banister.

I have to tell you, it was a bit scary for me, as I was sitting in the court room with a friend and had my back to the door. All of a sudden I hear a voice whisper in my ear........"I am sorry". It sent chills up and down my spine, all the hair I had on the back of my neck stood tall. It was all I could do to not turn around.

She was then called to the front of the court, and pleaded quilty. I then had to come make a statement. I told the judge that all of this could have been prevented if when she was pulled over, the CSPD would have looked at the picture on the license. Then I looked over to her, and then back to the judge telling him that we clearly do not look alike. ( she is a 350 lb hispanic woman with busy hair and eye brows. ) umm hello... I'm a white girl ( and pretty white as I have not been in the sun that much this summer). He agreed.

So...her sentencing: 30 days in jail, 3 years with supervised probabtion ( wearing an ankle braclet) she has to write me a letter from jail telling me how sorry she is.... ( humm wonder what disease I will catch by opening up that letter!) She has to pay to take a good citizenship class, do 100 hours of community service and pay all my restituation fees.

I think she still kinda got off easy.. what do you think?????????


  1. I love the part about her wearing that ankle thing for 3 years...I mean how can you wear a dress with one of those or go swimming? I wish you had gotten a pic of her so we could truly see HOW different she looks

  2. Glad you can close the door on that not so fun chapter of your life...what a mess! Never a dull moment huh!
