He’s currently looking for a capable attorney, “I need someone who will be able to reduce the charges and fight this for me. I feel like I was basically raped by the police department and set up for failure from the beginning since this occurred.” He says he wants to go to trial before a jury and fight the entrapment of which he feels to be the victim.
As The Free Thought Project has faithfully reported, the War on Drugs catches all types in its dragnet.
He sees that the police were not working for his good when they pretended to be a hot looking female teenager looking to hook up online. Dozens of other men, just like him, were taken advantage of by police pretending to be attractive females looking for dates.
Many of these folks had nothing to do with drugs and ONLY sought them out to be less lonely.
As The Free Thought Project has reported on numerous occasions, police officers have the discretion on whether or not to file charges against someone.
But in a major sting operation wherein multiple police departments are involved, the lone police officer who would be willing to go out on a limb for a guy like Rake simply won’t step forward.
The young man says the 12-gauge shotgun found in his trunk was there because he and his best friend go hunting on his friend’s 500 acres.
“He lives on the land and we just hunt for coyotes that go after his chickens. Rake attended and graduated William Blount High School in Maryville, TN, and is now attending the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, but hasn’t started back this semester because he’s unsure if he’s going to go back to college or off to prison.
The message they wanted to send, according to Sherriff Tommy Jones II was, “If you are involved in any type of drug activity…you will find yourself in prison.
Rake explains that he wants justice but doesn’t believe the three pills he took the young girl that night equates to 20 years of his life.
He says he got the pills from an aunt of a friend of his.
Making matters worse for Rake, he had a long gun in his trunk.“They searched my car and found my shotgun in the trunk under about 10 pounds of dirty laundry,” he said, admitting he did have a concealed firearm in his possession. “My lawyer is really shitty and doesn’t know what the hell he is doing,” admitting that the best his lawyer has been able to do for him is arrange a plea deal for 10 years in prison for “possession, sale and delivery of a schedule 2 narcotic” and “possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony”.
The now 21-year-old, who was 19 at the time of his arrest, is fearing the worst.
