Prose Synopsis

Sandy Jarvis was always popular with the academia in her schools, and she loved it. She and her friends would get together after class and discuss the subject matter. These students always excelled and part of the high rewards was due to the get together after class. Sandy’s social skills were also honed by interacting with some good friends. These involvements went on semester after semester.

Most of the girls had boyfriends, but Sandy had finance and was engaged. The Wedding date was seven months down the road to give them a chance to make and implement all the plans. George, her boy had even let her know where he was taking her for their honeymoon. Sandy looked forward to marriage and raising a family with George.

When the time rolled around to sending out wedding invitations, George left Sandy and began sleeping and living with a younger girl.

The shock of this sorrowful happening stunned Sandy so badly; she took a semester off of school to gather her composure. She engaged in a series of counseling sessions that removed the heavy, led like tightening in her stomach. Her priest friend invited her to his Bible Study class that she attended. It was at this time she left her interests in Urban Development, and enrolled in the criminology classes at UCB.

Sandy began helping with the law in an outreach program in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District. Her teachers and supervisors all felt Sandy to be a huge assert to her community. On a weekend that she volunteered in the outreach office, an Afro American grabbed her after work and while she was headed to catch public transportation, a system called, BART, and pulled her down in an ally and raped her repeatedly.

It was after this horrendous experience that Sandy was taken to UCSF mental health service station, Langley Porter; she was an outpatient, but needed to talk with a psychiatrist. After she was feeling and thinking better, she applied for work with the San Francisco’s Sheriff’s Department monitoring prisoner’s coming and going. It gave her a great deal of satisfaction seeing criminals brought to justice and pay for their crimes.
After graduating from USB’s crime school, she went to work for Nick Novak, PI. She loved seeing the detective help victims of crime.
