Question Have YOU also been in prison?

Whenever I come across a thread where the girlfriend/wife is talking about her boyfriend/husband and for whatever reason she also happens to mention that she also has been in trouble with the police/done time, (Ex.: she can't visit him because she has a felony herself) it surprises me. I'm not sure exactly why, but it does. I guess all my focus has been on "them" (men) being in prison and it rarely occurs to me that sometimes women also wind up in prison just like their man has.

I also bring it up because I just saw one of those prison shows where a man and a woman are in one of the few places that house men and women in buildings within close proximity to each other in a single prison complex and this one couple go to see each other at a distance through the separating chainlink and wire fences whenever they're both outside. They sleep and live within hundreds of feet of each other, yet they never speak or see each other up close because it isn't allowed.

Those things made me want to ask:

Have YOU ever been arrested and/or done time in prison?

My answer is no, on both counts.

I'm going to post a poll so people can answer the question without writing a response here, if they don't want to.

My situation wasn't in your poll either. I spent one night in juvenile hall following one of the funnest weekends of my teenage life, LOL.

I have served over 2 years in O.R.W. My expierence helps me to relate to my fiance and his struggles. I have changed my life and I encourage him to do the same. People do change and I speak to "king" in him not the "fool."

been arrested, convicted, but did not serve time in a prison, but did serve time in a county jail..

that is where/how I met my ex -- he was a trustee and I was on work release, he fixed my lunch everyday.. we never spoke until he was sent to prison and I was released to home....

it lasted for us almost 2 years.. but that is whole other story......!!

Yup. I was arrested twice. Once so that my fiance could run out the back door, I made a scene at the front door! But, I only did a few days in county for both. No long stretches here!

you can't really say never to this kinds of questions ... cuz you never know if things might go down and things will have to be done ... but good luck on that ...

I was arrested to making a u-turn between 5pm and 1am in the morning and getting a ticket. I went to pay for the ticket and they lost it. They wouldnt let me pay for ticket they didnt have. They found it 3months later and issued a warrant out for my arrest. I spent a whole 45 min. in county jail. Not such a big deal.

No to both. I never even knew anyone who had been to prison until I met my boyfriend, but I love him like hell and I'm with him til the end.
