She will get some some “free” food and housing now.
Cars too. “Neely told police she threw the rock because she believed the driver, who was a stranger, had stuck his tongue out at her. It’s unclear if the man did.”
Noone dares give her the raspberry lol
What is the point of the judge ordering her to pay the money? Those people will never see a dime
> Marlena Rochelle Neely, 30, told authorities she was homeless, had been asking people for $5 and would shatter a window every time she was refused because she was tired of people not helping her, according to a probable cause affidavit.
> As part of a plea agreement, two other cases were dismissed.
> In the first of those cases, police said they arrived May 3 at the Palms Motel at 3801 N. Interstate Ave. to find that Neely had thrown a TV, a cable box and dresser drawers out the window of her motel room. Neely was ordered Wednesday to pay $1,100 for the damage she caused there.
> In the second case, investigators said Neely shattered the car window of a stranger on Aug. 29 by throwing a rock. The man and his teenage daughter, who also was inside, were at Southeast 82nd Avenue and Washington Street. Neely was ordered to pay $297 for the damage to the car.
> Neely told police she threw the rock because she believed the driver, who was a stranger, had stuck his tongue out at her. It’s unclear if the man did.
> Because Neely has already served more than 20 days in jail since her arrests, the judge said she’d be released after Wednesday’s hearing.
Portlandians deserve what they put up with.
> Neely said she’s motivated to find a home and regain custody of her children. She said she has a 13-year-old son who’s living with her mother in California, and 7- and 8-year-old sons living in Oregon’s foster care system.
Those kids would be better off without her.
