Unhappy Intro--BatesvilleLady

I'm April. I am a mom to 4. My oldest is 22 and has signed a plea deal for 5 years for a sex crime. I'm scared for him to go to prison with the title of sex offender. People assume the worse and I am scared for him. I don't know where he is going yet. Am I overreacting? Is it as bad as I image it to be?

My husband just finished a federal sentence for a SO. He said the key is to be firm, don't let anyone back you down, while not being aggressive. He just tried to be quiet, have a few friends and stay out of everyone else's business. Probably a hard balance for a 22 yo. I would print out all the tips on here about prison etiquette and make sure he reads them.

My husband survived and while he did meet haters he also made a friend or two. It wasn't a fun time but it was survivable.

Hi, The Arkansas prison system will be difficult for your son, but as the other poster stated he can survive. I would also say don't believe everything you see on TV. His young age will likely be more of an issue than his conviction. I survived 13 years with only 1 or 2 problems. I'm now doing criminal justice advocacy work, one resource you might want to look at is Arkansas Time After Time, a resource and advocacy group for families of persons convicted of sex offenses. I can give you a phone number if you private message me.
