Red face Intro--Tufahije from Canada

Hi,

My name is Tufahije. I am from BiH [Republika Srpska] originally so I ask that you forgive my horrible English. I work on it every day and I continue to take ESL.

I came here first to ask a question of opinion but of being here I learned there is much useful information so I make the decision to make an Introduction. You see, I am in a relationship with a man who has been convicted of violent crimes. I am in the process of ending it after over one year together but I will always care for this man very much. He has similar complaints like much of the posts here. Finding a job is difficult is one example but he has an education. He served over 12 years but he is on parole right now.

Thus I can not say that I have experience of a man in prison. The most close I have come to understand such situations is that last year my man, on parole, was charged with a non violent crime. He had to stay locked up until the charges were dropped because of a lack of evidence. It was difficult, scary and caused much worries.

If he is convicted again, he will be sent away for a very long time. He knows it. I do not want this to happen but I can not orchestrate his future for him. And so I am here to learn, understand and learn to cope.

Thank you.

Hi Tufahije,

Welcome here, I'm relatively new as well (I was a lurker for a long time, lurker meaning I wasn't registered but read the posts as they helped me many times). Canadian here (Toronto/Hamilton) but also Irish (currently living in Ireland). Keep yourself safe and looking forward to your posts :-)

Hi Tufahije. I'm not sure if you're still on this site but I'm generally trying to connect with others in or from Canada. I'm currently on parole after serving about 15 months in jail and trying, with my family's help, to reconstruct my life. I hope all is going well with you.

Hi OnparoleinTO,

Yes, I am still here, learning and reading a lot. I can understand wanting to connect with others experiencing the Canadian justice system. Best wishes on your continued efforts to make the best of your life on parole.
