Unhappy my husband in a utah prison

Hi my name is Karla and my husband just recently got sentenced 5 to life in the utah state prison. I want to know if there's anything we can do to get him out sooner. he's just 18, we have a daughter, and a baby on the way. his charge was aggravated robbery, but other than that he doesn't have a criminal background. his lawyer didn't represent him very well. he skipped the preliminary hearing where one of the two charges would've got dismissed, and lied to us basically about the conditions of the case, so as to talk my husband into pleading guilty. he's now in the prison and having a hard time. i haven't been able to talk to him on the phone or visit him yet, but he sends me a lot of letters. he's having a hard time being so young there and fitting in, it doesn't seem like he's really making friends with anyone. what can I do to help him?

Hey Welcome to PTO
My husband is also in a Utah prison on a five-->life for aggravated robbery. He was also 18 when sentenced, We just had his first parole hearing July-2003 and he was granted parole for July-2007. I'm sure your husband will not get out before his five years. If he does all the programs and stays out of trouble, he may get out after doing his minimum of 5 years. I'm assuming he's at Draper right now, if he can put in to transfer to Gunnison they have alot more programs, and is generally a nicer prison. It is alot further than Draper (2 hrs south of SLC) Anyways if you have any questions just ask away or PM me. I lived in West Valley for a long time, and have been dealing with all this for a long time. As for your husband not having a competent lawyer I really don't thnk that matters at all to them, as long as they get a guilty plea before having to go to trial. If it was gang related at all, they will not go easier on his sentence. Sorry I wish I could say something to make you feel better. It does get easier, just visit as often as you can, and always write. My thoughts & prayers are with you!!
