This is absolutely insane. It's been almost a year since my man's final sentencing. He's already been moved to prison. We're going on a month and a half of him being in the prison. I check the VADOC website every damn day to see if his release date has been posted. There's nothing.
I've contacted VADOC plenty of times before by phone and email and they keep saying they're "backed up". Maybe Virginia should stop locking up so many people then. I guess this is my rant. I am beyond frusturated.
He and I have done our own calculations for his time; but what really matters is the official count. Is anybody else dealing with this BS? How much longer do you guys think I'll have to wait for an update?
Going through the same thing with my boyfriend. His sentencing was in March 2016 and he was taken into DOC in August 2016 and still does not have a release date. He wrote them and they said the same thing you were told, they are backed up and will let him know when it's calculated. Weird thing is that people he knows that were taken into DOC after him have release dates. It's driving us crazy because his calculations have him coming home the end of this year. I just want to know!
