    Jamila had a get rich uick scheme buy up old houses renovate and onsell at a profit during the property boom Her problem was to get a loan but no problem Lehmans offered loans and while she did not ualify they showed her how to ualify All she had to do was prepare the appropriate documentation in which truth was not a reuirement Then they got her for fraud took the properties sold them to an insider for 14 million under what they could have got presumably would have obtained a nice tax loss with the IRS had they lasted long enough and as a conseuence of her having either incompetent lawyers as all her funds had been confiscated or as alleged in one case a lawyer secretly working for Lehmans she got 12 ½ years in jail while everyone else profited That at least is her story In the final wash up of Lehmans which occurred about six months after she was sent to jail none of their fraudsters got anything like that An account of getting to there takes up about 25% of the book The rest is wash up and an account of the appeals etc she subseuently lodged seemingly as a self taught lawyer from in prison a summary of the prison system and some poems This is a very unattractive account of the American legal and political system I have no idea how much is true but some must be because she cites court transcripts One thing that surprised me was that most of the appeals were heard by the same judge who originally presided at her trial That alone seems to me an injustice surely an appeal must be heard by someone who is not judging his own work? The book is moving well written for what it is and if true a terrible indictment of corruptive injustice I regard this an important book for people to read not for its literary merits but rather because some very important issues are raised If true there are serious issues that must be fixed
