Default Good news! Things are actually moving forward!!

My man called me last night and told me that he was called into the office and they told him that within the next 12 months he'll be moved to MINIMUM custody because they want to get him ready for release. Of course, this can take a few more years but still.... He will be eligible to start working beyond the fence and eventually have home leaves, etc..
I'm so so so flipping happy about that, he was so ready for something positive happening in his life.
First parole date is coming up in 2023 but if his incarceration will be in a minimum environment with al those "perks" that'll make it so much better!
He's been in for 23 years and maybe we'll even have the chance to spend time on the outside before I start using a walking frame

Awww congratulations!! Sounds like he's doing everything he needs to do to be eligible for parole and the important thing is, everyone else is noticing it too! That's some great news and you have every right to be excited! I'll keep my fingers crossed and you better celebrate every little milestone that happens and come here and update us. That's so exciting!!

When you say "home leaves," does that mean he can go home for certain periods of times, like furloughs? If so, I remember when my fiancé first went away, I used to always dream that he had those. It stunk because he was always so distant in those dreams lol. As time went on though, luckily they went away.

Anyways, I'm sure his spirits are up with all this news. How exciting =)

I only can say what I read on the NC prison info page and it could be home on weekends, something like that. I'm so new to this, so unexperienced, all figuring this out slowly...

That's wonderful news! I pray for his continued success and that you both enjoy his new custody level and all that it brings while you ride out the rest of his time.

I'm so flipping excited!!! Jeff just called and told me his counselor signed him up for classes which - once successful completed - will have him home for the first weekend since incarceration (now for 23+ years) in about 18 months! He asked me if I could come or plan for that. Can you believe that?
My heart is pounding, I'm so happy!! I feel like crying... for joy and relief...

I was just counting.... in 5 months/158 days is my next visit (April 23) so then another year and we might meet beyond the fence for the very first time.
I'm so happy for him because he's seeing a huge light at the end of (t)his 2-consecutive-life-sentences-tunnel.

Very happy for you both! Looking forward to hearing about your visit (and holiday!) and whatever the future holds - minimum custody is amazing news!
