Hey Mom L hang in there. I layed in the county jail 370 days. They try to break you down in the county & it is harder than doing prison time.

As for the lenght of time yes this is not unusual, my son sat in the county jail for seven months so yes the justice system can be very slow.

Hi,
My name is Deb. I live in Utah and my heart is in WMCC in Cameron. He's been in the system for 7 years and we have been together for 8. I travel every 3 to 4 months to see him. Only 19 more months to go

Just looking at the postings and hearing the stories helps me to understand that I am not going through an ordeal like this alone. Yes I'm rather an ole timer at time but the knowledge that there are others out there really makes a difference. In all my visits to Cameron I have never met a rude or hostile person in any of the visitor rooms or waiting to enter and mingling with other family members. I enjoy seeing some of the other family members each and every time I visit and am both happy and sad when they either get released or move on. Finding this site was a happy accident Have a great day all!

Default Hello from Missouri

Hi my name is Lisa. My son is in county with very serious charges pending.
I never thought my family would be faced with something like this. My prayers are with all Mothers and family members with loved ones incarcerated.

ThurmanMom, so sorry that your circumstances have lead you to this site, but so thankful that you DID find us! This is a very supportive group with lots of members with lots and lots of knowledge in most aspects of the DOC! So, welcome aboard! Feel free to ask questions and read, read the many posts you will find! By the way, my son is incarcerated in the DOC, so I do understand the many emotions you are feeling right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

Hi Lisa, prayingformyson could not have said it better, I would only repeat everything that she said. I also have a son in DOC. Most everyone here you will find to be nonjudgemental, some circumstances is the only thing that make us different. We are all here because someone that we care so much about is incarcerated and our hearts are torn in so many directions. Welcome, I hope that you also soon find some answers you may be looking for and find support to guide you through this time. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as will your son.

Hi, my hubby is in fulton right now. This is all new to us and I can't tell you how thankful I am to have found this. I was feeling so alone, (even though I have support) because they haven't been through anything similar. Thanks again to this site.....I will survive

My step-son's mom is in WERDCC, her time there is uncertain so it makes it a little harder. The not knowing what is really going on is what makes it the most difficult.

I don't know if that is a good thing or not Mrs. P. ha ha. But welcome Kerry. If you need to talk or anything, you've got a bunch of Springfield girls on here with you. Even though Mrs. P'z husband just came home and Money is due home in a few months, we plan on sticking around for awhile. To give support to those in need, because when we was in need, the support was given to us.....
