my son was released on parole in once month he got his license, fork lift license an enrolled in school. atthe 30 day mark his PO shows up tells him he had a dirty test, which he only had one test and that was from the prison straigh tto parole so there wasnt any room for error.He swears he would have told me if he had, as in the past we made a pact that if he slipped up hed tell me., and he would. The woman didnt want him to come live with me would prefer he be on the streets trying to make it on the 200 gate money and the lack of educational tools while inside. They offered no help when he got out he and I did everything all the researching he did all the calling.And made such progress .So she shows up says the test he took right when he got out was dirty so she is going to make him go into inhouse rehab which could be up to 3-6 months. She said there are no beds so he will sit in county jail until a bed opens. So he freaked and ran. he plans to get his head together and turn himself in butwhat will it mean then? hHe has two felonies. never ever any drug charges.where do we turn and what should he do. Shes hell bent on destroying him and sending him back. Itslike some jeaous woman that feels she has to be the one to rescue him. help.. he was also told by a fewothersthat htey have done 602s on her but they cant get rid of her and she ends up with everyone back in prison.
I need to know what will happen when he turns himself in. Does she or did she have a right to do this? He tried telling her the accomplishment and ground he was making but the only thing she cared to discuss was "his sobriety". Hasnt she ever heard the term " replace a bad habit with a good one" Shes just jumping to conclusions that hes going to fail because she found a trace or whatever of meth in his urine. that could have been slipped to him at anytime in there. Hes told me all up front as we agreed and swears he did not do any meth in there (rephrase, hadnt touched any in two years and prior to that slipped 2 tmes and told me both times). She didnt even say this in front of me she waited til he walked her out and she said "you can consider this a drop off youre not coming back".No option, no proof, no real reason besides her saying he had meth in his system when he did the urine test right out of the prison. If she does this to him he will have drugs on his record and he will never be ale to see his daughter again. Does he have any recourse? How or where can he get help?He did his time paid his dues. We were in the process of getting an apartment far away from the old neighborhoods and now I dont know what I should do. If I call her she will turn this into me being an accomplice. Ive seen how these people work. I used to have respect for them but Ive seen too much. I even gave her a benefit of the doubt but the more she spoke the less respect I had/have.
so to be more direct in questioning. What will happen when he turns himself in? How much time will he get. Does he have a rigth/will they let him fight this so he can go to school and work
will it be better to turn himself in sooner than later or will it matter at this point.is there someone he can call?Im afraid if i tell his he risks now going back to complete his time he wont "make it"
