Based on the 2,000 foot, and no minors in residnce, my grandson only had choice to pay for motel - and only a few are in area acceptable. My ex husband and I have now paid $1,500 - the limit to our resources, and then he will be without shelter. No shelter programs or training will give him night lodging.
By the way, the court
recores do not show at all his history - very important info missing like the fact that he was kicked out of his home, and not "sharing " home with woman who used him sexually and plied him with liquor every day. He was a co-defendant, vs another victim of this woman. I believe a decent attorney could have charges dropped iin his case, but it would have to be pro bono work. I am praing the language in Prop 83 gives the original age fourteen as limit to victim age, and difference between ages at 7 which was proposed originally. My grandson was just 18, and girl was 14 - she was runaway, he was homeless. Both vulnerable.
The codefendent, different county, was provided with 2 weeks motel room paid by the county - my grandson given nothing. Came out of prison with $200 - he spent $180 on clothes - he had nothing but the raggedy chothes on his back . Had to wait five days to even see his PO. He was given the GPS device, told acceptable motels - costing from $78 to over $100 per night. Most of these will not accept anyone under 21. His step father registered him under his own name, but did not stay with him. HE still in motel under an adults name. He has less than a month now to earn enough or sleep on street. Will he be forced to prostitution
? He wants to further his educ., work, have a future. Have we as voters taken away any options for him but a life of criminal
activity? I believe the dept corrections has changed for their own reasons the people being affected by Prop 83 - your own web site about 263.5 does not mention Jessica's law. Thus, you do not mention those restrictions.
