Sentencing Next Month

At last Wednesday's court date (the one we couldn't stay for) 5 out of the 6 charges were dropped- so I think it will be a year in County Jail. But we won't know for sure until April 13th- his next court date. He called the other night and said the day he gets out of jail he'd like to go straight to the airport and head out of state, to where we have family (we've offered in the past for him to go to rehab back there). This is the first time he's mentioned it on his own- maybe he's finally realizing he can't keep going back to the same playground if he truly wants to stay clean. Don't know if he'd even be allowed to go to out of state rehab, but I'm glad he's even considering it.

  1. The court merry go round is going to be the death of me...why can they not just tell you today what they plan on telling you next week?

  3. that's exactly what our son did and it's working....he just got totally away from any triggers, people or otherwise.

    He did have to get the judge to do a bond amendment, to allow him to go out of state to rehab.,...and then stay there in a sober living home, while he waits for his court date,...the day before your son's date.

    I hope your son's motivation to change continues. As you know, it's got to be them that wants it.....way more than us.

    God bless you.

  4. I hate it that he has to go to jail, but if it works it will be worth it. It may save his life. You and your family stay in my prayers.

  5. If he has to do some time in jail, better it's county and not state jail. My son's currently in one county jail and then headed to another county jail to adress other charges there. I, like you and others, am so tired of the legal merri-go-round. Yes, these are his problems to handle and he is doing just that, but it still effects me and just makes me so tired. Praying for all of these kids.

  6. I don't get the difference between county and state prisons I'm British. All prisons sound lousy places. NA talk about jails institutions and death. Well I'm not dead yet and I never ended up in jail but I did end up in a mental institution ~ 3 times. I very nearly ended up in one a couple of months ago thanks to an episode of psychotic mania which was NOT drug-induced and finally the drug clinic have seen that I really was self-medicating all these years. I told them I got mood swings and nobody listened. Now I'm on meds for schizoaffective disorder and sticking to my methadone. I started using heroin again, basically because I was so miserable (depressive episode). I'm fed up of that and very lucky to have got booked on to this sobriety course that's supposed to really work. It costs several hundred pounds per client but I'm getting it free and I'm so glad. I start tomorrow so wish me luck :-)

    PS It's been more than a month so what happened?

  8. Hey Gledwood, I wish you the VERY best with your new sobriety course! I will keep you in my prayers- cuz that's what I do best- pray, pray, pray! Thank you for asking about my son. His sentencing was this morning, but neither my husband or I could go because of work, so I'm hoping son is able to call us tonight and let us know if it's anything different than the year in county jail- which is what we heard last. Take good care of yourself- you are worth it and deserve a healthy life!

  10. Thank goodness for your wonderful help and prayers Diviner Odi. My son Stephen is now well and have quit drugs and alcohol. I was making all efforts to make my son Stephen quit drugs. He was addicted to drugs for the past 13 years. He had made my life a living hell and that of his siblings. His late Dad developed a heart attack and died as a result of when Stephen was caught with cocaine and sentenced to 6 years in prison. He steals from me to buy drugs when he has no money. Sometimes, i do pity him when he sit down crying like a child when he does not have the money to buy the drugs and alcohol. He has been taking to rehabilitation centers, yet he did not change.I came across a testimony of a man on a prayer blog of how Diviner Odi helped his daughter to quit drugs. I wrote Him, and i was told what to do, in 5 days, my son quit drugs and alcohol. thanks to Diviner Odi for his prayers. If anybody on this blogs needs his help you can contact him via his email address: latterdayassembly@gmail.com
