Felonious Phraseology

Heard a new one today when an offer was made to a client who had never been convicted of a felony. The offer was the ever-elusive 12.44(a) time (which is a felony conviction where the client serves misdemeanor time):

"You know, it would be one thing if I had already gotten an 'F' on my report card before, you know what I mean?"

I had a guy once who had about 15 misdemeanor convictions, and 3 state jail trips, and 4 tdc trips, but wanted 12.44a because he'd never had that particular kind of time before.
