Hi Pearl, I really wasn't expecting to chat or speak with anyone. I didn't know I could. My son is in jail in T sorry, My son is in jail in TX for a DUI. and it's not his first one. Plus he was on parole when it happened. He is an alcoholic and was in recovery and working every day and doing good for about a year. In April he relapsed and was caught driving while intoxicated and is in the Johnson County jail in cleyburne TX.
JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I don't know what to expect. I've been looking online and have his court
#, SID#, and the penal code he's being charged with. I just completed chemo and radiation not to long ago and had stage 4 cancer and i'm so afraid that i'll never get to put my arms around my son or kiss him on the cheek again, in this lifetime because I read where he could get 20 years.
JA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?
Customer: No because its so hard to find one out here in California that can help him out there in TX. I really don't know what to do. I don't have a lot of money, I'm almost 70 years old and I'm hoping to retire soon. The little bit of cash I have saved up will help when I retire with keeping my health insurance,etc. But, I do have a credit card
that I could use to hire an attorney to fight for him in court, if I could only get some kind of advise from someone to tell me if it would help for him to have an attorney. I don't want to put more debt on me when i'm so close to retiring, you know what I mean? My son is really a very nice person, and I don't really understand alcoholism as a desease.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Oh Gosh, would you be able to connect me with a lawyer ? I didn't know that.
