Albany-- American Heart Association jailbirds went in front of the judge empty-handed.

And they got a stern warning for it. Tonya Kilpatrick and Lisa Wright are raising $1,000 dollars a piece for the American Heart Association's Cardiac-Arrest fundraiser. Judge Ken Hodges warned them they only have a week to raise the money.

Jailbird Tonya Kilpatrick says, "I've got a lot of great ideas. I'm going to take a jar and tell people I'll mow lawns--anything to make money for AHA."

Jailbird Lisa Wright says, "It was kind of intimidating in front of the judge. But I'm doing my best to raise money for Heart Association."

For the last several years, Albany's Cardiac-Arrest has raised more money than any other city in the country. This year, the Albany branch hopes to bring in $40,000 dollars from the jailbirds.
