In your honest opinion, should your loved one be inside? Did they honestly commit the crime that landed them there? Or was it a crime of poverty or crime by association? Do you believe they got what they deserved?
I don't believe that my husband should have been convicted of what he was convicted of. I don't believe he should be in prison. I do believe karma caught up to him! But I think he should have been released years ago. At the same time, I believe the Universe works in mysterious ways and that he is still in there because for some reason he is meant to be, though I do not understand it at all.
My guy should have served some time in prison for issues unrelated to what he was convicted of. He should never have been given the death penalty or LWOP. He has been in for around 18 years but should have been out a long time ago!
Yes, he's guilty he'll be the first person to tell you, he committed a crime and he's glad he was locked up because otherwise he would of never learned his lesson and he'd still be doing what he was doing. But here's the thing... he lives in Florida... they always go way overboard in my opinion, and many others! He's in there for larceny more than $300 less than $1,000.. he wasn't armed or anything but he was addicted to Oxy, and was messed up on it when it went down and he was sentenced with 10 years.... 10 years! I think thats a bit overboard... but then again, it could just be me..
My BF's guilty of what he did and should be punished for his crimes but the twenty years he got was a little too harsh! He's in federal so doesn't matter that he's changed and put that whole life behind him, which he really has, there's no parole in federal so he just has to do all those years. Breaks my heart!
I cannot say if he is guilty or not. But I do know that his sentence was extreme. He was convicted of robbery 1 and possession of a weapon 3. They originally gave him 20 years. They let him give back 5. He's already been in almost 10 yrs. he just turned 29 and has 4 hopefully less years to go.
Well at the moment yeah guilty for parole violation which to me seems a bit extreme to serve 18months for being out 10 mins too late for the whole curfew shit.. I know yeah he shouldn't of been out knowing not suppose to.. but 18 months really? I told him well you shouldn't of been stupid (its all love) but his initial crime I honestly don't know :-/ something ive tried to understand ive heard from a lot of people he innocent.. but when it comes down to it it's her word against his.. idk.. but I feel in my heart he is innocent.. but like he said him her & God know the truth (and he's put it on God (Allah) he is the innocent one..

LWOP... he did the crime and his time fits it. yes he was on drugs but again that was his choice to do the drugs to begin with. Robbed a store and killed the owner. young and dumb but again it was his choice. Doesnt mean I love him any less though.
yes i know he is guilty.my man is in prison for violating probation on dui charge. i think that is extreme. jail time- yes but prison?? i think if dui goes along with a death or injury then prison is right but he has not physically hurt anyone. and now he is treatment with sex offenders and child molesters. which i think they should their own kind of treatment.
He's guilty of his original charge 3 dwi yup his mistake no excuses but the reason he's in jail now is violating probation wich he never even started since he was sentenced to 10 days in jail n 7yrs probation but when he was getting out he got deported n never showed up at his po so it all came back to us when he came back they sent a warrant n they revoked his probation to 2 yrs tdc n he will still be deported after that...so my journey just started.
My man is guilty of his crime but the time he got is like okay really. A guy killed my cousin took him from his children and he received 15 years. 5 more then my man. My man was defending himself from 8 people and he gets 10 years. Its not the 10 years that bother me what bothers me is they won't let him out to do parole. I have seen so many come out and go right back in over and over again. Its like if your a woman beater no problem. A child molester no problem. Not in every case but a lot of cases I have seen this. My brother did not kill anyone and he received 17 years for a drug charge. How do you get more time for selling drugs then you do murdering someone?
To the world you might just be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

He's guilty & we're fortunate that he didn't get any more time that he got. The part I disagree with is how much time they're making him do before he can do parole. He's doing way too much time in prison on his sentence in my opinion.
It hasn't always been easy, but it's always been worth it.
I believe my man could have prevented what happened but he is only guilty of association with the wrong person (who got charged with the same class felony and only received 9months versus his 3 years). The system was screwed up and biased and even though karma caught up to him, he didn't deserve to be punished for this particular crime.
Yeah, hes guilty. He will even tell you. He could have gotten so much more time than what he really got. He originally could of been charged with an A felony and 2 ds and maintaining a common nuisance. He got charged with dealing in a controlled substance and got 4 years do 2 and will possibly be out in April on house arrest if it goes through.
as i learn more about things he is guilty of knowing his friend was doing something they both could get locked up for... his sentence on the other hand we got lucky with but i still think it was unfair... he got more time than his co- accused who was guilty of more than just being stupid
He's guilty and very lucky he didn't get more time. Until he learns to stay away from the alcohol and drugs he will continue to waste his life on the prison/probation/violation merry-go-round. I don't think he has been out (and not on the run) for more than three months at a time in the last 15 years, which is a shame.

As much as it sucks to say hes 150% guilty. He was charged with some bad things, 1st degree murder, armer robbery and kidnapping. He received life with the possibilty of parole after 25. What does get me is one of his co defenders got 2nd degree murder and got 16 yrs. It also hurts because he was a minor when he did it and got the most time.
My husband was not guilty of any crime. that is what is so upsetting to me. The prosecutor "proved" to the jury what he thought my hubby "intended". He got 10 years for NO CRIME, only what they thought he might do! This was a mail fraud case.
