Default New to this life

Hello my bf has been in County for 9 years . Just got sentenced a week ago . This is all very new to me . We were together 20 years ago and then broke up and went on our ways. Found him about 5 years ago in jail . I'm a bit confused about his time . Te family member of the person who was the victim said he got 29 years with parole denied , but then the news article says he got 30 years . He said to me 30 years to life with a parole hearing in 6 years . I'm so confused. Also any help is needed on how I can help him through this and how I can be there . How do I deal with the waiting . Etc. Any help would be great thank u .

Sounds similar to my story. We were together a long time ago. Found each other again right before he went to county jail. Served a year there and now in prison. He's been there for 2 weeks. I cannot help much as far as yout time status questions but I can tell you to write as much as you can. That will help him and help you. I've sent emails, letters, pictures, puzzles, news articles and today he wrote me a loooong letter telling me how much that meant to him and how it was the one and only thing he had to look forward too. This is not going to be easy but hang in there sweety

Its hell isn't it? It's good you can be there for him. I think of so many people in there with nothing and nobody who cares about them. I have a similar story and really its hard to keep everything prioritized when you have someone in your life that needs your help so much.

The parole hearings are REALLY tough too. The media hype in CA is that all these guys get out on parole- but many never do. Its hard to be supportive and keep your sanity.

At least you found this forum. Sounds like he may be a lifer? There is a GREAT organization called Lifer Alliance here in California. They are advocates and provide newsletters to help educate us and our incarcerated friends/family etc.

Good luck
