Default Ankle bracelet life!

So happy that my husband is home! Now this ankle monitoring is for the birds! He did the impossible - got a job with all his barriers - he's working full-time. He has the opportunity to work longer days but cannot because the ankle monitor regulations have become an issue. He was not told the in's and out's like if he is mandated to stay late at work so he would be late to get in the house he has to call a hotline not his PO. So he texted and called the PO of his schedule change - got no response but he's working so he can't be in his phone constantly. When he got home he got a call from his POs supervisor saying they could violate him because of this. Well we learn something new everyday with this ankle monitoring crap. Even though he is working he has a mandatory lock in day - so his one day off from work we cannot even enjoy the day. But at least he is home! Only a few more months of this!

This is still much better than Ft Dix - Schulykill- or Ray Brook! So I'm not complaining.

Avoiding "catch 22" supervised release violations is a full time job by itself. Since the PO supervisor (who could resolve the issue fairly) doubled down by threatening a PV for working late, your husband has very little choice. He either follows the POs rules religiously, or he risks a new prison sentence. Unfortunately that might cost him his job unless his employer is more reasonable than US Probation is.

To make matters worse he is being switched to that supervisor as his PO til the ankle monster comes off. This sucks already! Thank goodness its only for a couple of months with this witch! So even though he is home- now we are all in prison until all this supervision is done, the kids spend too many days emotional because their father cannot participate in a lot of activities. But it's just our way of life for now.

Keep your head up.... at least you know there is an end in site and when it is. My husband has been on house arrest for 15 months while he was out on bond and awaiting sentencing. It becomes easier as time goes on and you only have a few months so it'll be over before you know it. Worse case scenario, yes, he could possibly lose his job but he found this one WITH a bracelet.... he'll find one without it, or another if need be. Remember the worse of all of this is over and you'll find your "new normal" before you know it.
