Default Boyfriend just sentenced to 8 years

Hello,

My true soul mate was just sentenced to 8 years yesterday. As many of you may know its hard to find friends and family who know actually what your going through. Just looking for support and knowledge of those who have been down this road.

Thank u!

Well you came to the right place!! I am new to PTO too, but even in such a short amount of time these wonderful women have given me alot of strength and information! They listen and give advice that you can't get from anyone else because no one knows what it's like to be in our situation! If you ever have questions, just ask because someone will answer them for you. If you need to vent do so because someone is always listening. This site will help you so much! It has me anyway! Welcome!!

I will be here to support you. You are right. Family and friends do not understand. Folks on here live it everyday, just like you do, and they understand. Be strong, be positive and stay focused. God Bless!

You will find LOTS of people on here who know exactly what you're going through. My fiancee was sentenced on 10/31 and I still don't think I've fully accepted what's happening. Be strong, and realize that even without the support from your loved ones (as HARD as it may be), you can and will get through this!!!

Sorry to hear about your man My man was sentenced to 8 years as well.. we have almost 4 years down now. If you keep looking at the the date of when he'll be realeased you'll drive yourself crazy. I never count down the days.. Time seems to just progress. Live your life, take this time to better yourself and be strong for your man. Write often, talk often and visit as much as you can. Before you know it you'll have a year down! You'll get through this.. And for the days when you feel like you can't .. thats when you vent to all of us! good luck!

My husband got sentenced to 7 years this past Oct. So if you need someone to talk to, let me know. It is nice to have someone who understands.

Stay strong and keep coming back to the site when you feel lonely I have been here for only a month and I love it. The ladies have so many kind words because they know and relate on how we feel.

BTW my hubby got 10yrs

Wow, 21 years? You are very strong and I am sure you give others the strength to hang on when they feel like letting it all go.

Kudos to you

Is it a mandatory eight years or does your state allow for the 25% or 85% laws? My sweetie was just sentenced to three years, but he was just granted parole today after one year so your sweetheart may not have to serve the whole eight. He may be able to knock extra time off for being in Trustee status or attending programs like NA, church meetings, etc. He needs to talk to his case manager as soon as possible and I would recommend either calling or researching the policies of your state's Department of Corrections.

Good luck and remember that it's not forever. Time goes by pretty quickly as long as you stay focused.

I will not lie,it is not going to be easy,the best advice that I can give you is take one day at a time,and sometimes even that don't work.I have been dealing with this for almost 16 years,he was 19 when he got sentenced and is 34 now.He has missed his kids growing up,they were 4 and 8 when all this happened.Our daughter had our first grandchild 4 months ago,and he missed that too.I have faced so much hurt,pain,many questions and people telling me this is a waste of my time,but at the end of the day he is still my husband,best friend and soul mate,regardless of what he did or didn't do that got us to this place in our lives.I have waited almost 16 years and have a little more than 9 left,he was sentenced to 25 years.I love him and it is my choice to wait and support him,because he supports me even through the worst days.
