Unhappy Intro - ADL&AJH102010

Hi Everyone. A friend suggested this site to me. I myself am an ex-con (not new charges since 2012) But the reason I am here is my man, the father of my child. He has been incarcerated since Oct 2015. He is about to take a deal for 10 years at 85% or go to trial where his P.D. says he could get life. He just told me yesterday he plans to take the deal which breaks my heart.
He has a co-defendant who turned evidence on him but who they have on recordings admitting that she was the main person in the crime and that her whole statement against him is all lies. She only got 5 years non-violent because of her statement and I know his has his own guilty in his crimes but it breaks my heart that he is getting violent time. Our daughter will be 10 when he gets to come home.

Yeah, the first to talk is the first to walk That's how our injustice system works, that plea deals. I'm so sorry you and your daughter are going through this, it isn't an easy journey. Word of advice from an old-timer? Put you & your daughter first - always. Take one day at a time, and stay busy. Go back to school. Work. Spend time with friends & family. Staying busy will help the time pass.

Welcome to PTO!

Thank you so much. I've actually started looking into going back to school & I work full time and am getting a promotion to management when my training is finished in 2 weeks. I just moved to Western KY from Central KY back in the summer so most of my friends are still back home but I stay in contact with them and try to visit once a month since my man is still in that area as well.

I completed a Master's during one bid and a Paralegal Certificate during another ...it really helps to have something to focus on. Matter of fact, if My Mr doesn't make parole this time, I may go for another BA in a totally unrelated subject. We'll see

Congratulations on the promotion Way to go!!!

One of the biggest injustices is that there really is no chance of a fair trial with a public defender.... not necessarily knocking them. They are over worked and under resourced compared to the State Prosecutor. It's not a case of innocent until proven guilty it is a case of innocent until unable to afford an effective lawyer.

This blatantly false. Yes, they're over-worked and under-paid, but you're as likely to get really good PD as you are to get a really good paid attorney. You're also as likely to get a really shitty PD as you are a really shitty paid attorney. It works both ways

Yeah I am finding things to focus on. He goes up for parole in April 2024. I work 40-50 hours a week and I start college back in a little over a week. So hopefully that will all help pass the time.

2024 Awwww sweetie, you've surely got a long journey ahead of you I'm glad you're staying in school. but school on top of 40-50 hours per week Don't forget to take some time for you to relax / unwind every once in a while. My thing was always Friday nights: long hot bubble bath, music loud and Bud Light, cold long-neck bottles

Yeah. I spend my only day off with my daughter. All the working and trying to get a better education is working towards the goal of giving a better future to our daughter, who currently lives with my brother. Playing with her is my big stress relief.

ADL&AJH012010 - So sorry to hear about your loved one's sentence. Patch is right, stay busy and #1, take care of yourself. Glad to hear you are spending quality time with your little one. You definitely have a full plate - just don't burn yourself out while doing everything. I regret that I didn't take better care of myself but when you are the only one bringing in a paycheck, it is hard to do. You will find great support here. Good luck with your journey. One step and then another.

Thank you. I am going to try not to stress out so much. My classes started today, so that is going to help keep my mind busy. My daughters birthday is next month so I am going to have my hands full planning and saving for that. It is going to be a busy couple of weeks.
They have my man in Taylor County now. Hopefully he will be moving on the somewhere else soon. We were talking about how nice the weather was the other day and I know he hadn't been able to go out much at the last county jail he was at but I was hoping that since he was moved it would be different but I guess not.

They're supposed to go outside/rec weather permitting so many days per week. Of course, the county facilities don't always follow the rules. Has he been sentenced yet? If so DOC rules for counties housing state inmates apply:

Yes he has been sentence. I did all my state time in county facilities and they don't follow the guide lines at all. If you are a sentenced inmate in a county jail the best chance you have of going outside is for work if you are lucky enough to get to work outside.

If he doesn't go up for parole until 2024, he'll be transferred to Roederer whenever there is room.

Hang in there and remember, we're here.
