I voted not sure, because my friend was a young kid that got wrapped up with the wrong people and got hit with murder.

I seriously doubt he will commit murder again. He does not nor did he ever have a problem with drugs or alcohol, so that is nice to know.

No one will ever know for sure what another will do prior prison or not.

Nope, never. And if Cam ever went back, that's it for me. I can wait this bid out, but the loneliness and sadness is too heavy to carry for another however many years once he's released.

I feel like as much as one should never say never, it really is never lol. I have no doubts that he will get out and be there for me/his family. All it takes is a lot of love and a strong support system in my opinion.

Some people just don't change though! And in that case I say- look out for your own well being. It's impossible to help an individual if they don't want it.

Always a possibility, I think many people here, especially young ones wrapped up in some weird ass arrests need to realize, there is always the chance that this life goes on forever. Messed UP!! Of course there are many where it was a big stupid mistake. And I think the ones involved with the others know it may be more than anticipated.
More than a few need to realize that its not so simple to just get off parole and change things around to fit corrections departments.
Will he go back? You got a 50\50 chance.at best.

Well I said I hope not...but unfortunately things did not rurn out that way....My husband did 4 years in state prison. He's been in and out but that's long before I met him. He was home for the past 6 years doing really well and I really thought he was going to be ok. Lately we went through some really difficult financial times and he turned to drugs again and got into trouble and is in the county jail right now. I really hope he does not get prison time but I know in reality he probably will. Everything he has done in his past has been related to drugs and I'm really hoping he can get the help and treatment he needs but right now it's just a matter of waiting...I also said I'd never go through this again but he's my husband and I love him and can't turn my back on him...the situation really sucks. I guess deep down inside I always knew there was a chance of this happening....

For a new crime? I know he will never go back.

For a parole violation? Depends on how oppressive of a PO he gets. Like he got a parole violation once just because he lost his job and couldn't get one in a certain amount of time.

I don't think anyone could say a positive yes and be confident with their answer.
My answer is I hope not. He told me several times he's not going to do anything to separate us again because this is killing him. He's no spring chicken either. He Will be 47 next month and I'll be 40 in June. Before he went in we had a perfect marriage great relationship he raised our daughter perfectly and she graduates soon and is already signed up for college. There is always the possibility that his parole officer could be an ass and give him technical violations but to get a new case??? He better not because even though it would kill me I won't do this ever again.

I voted the same.......a 100% certainty of "never" is a bit much. Nobody knows where life is going to take you or what you're going to do (or attempt to do) to get through it, and once you've been in, the cards are stacked against you a bit more than they are against someone without a record.

For your sake though, I hope he's done with prison after this.

3 months post-release with Dee...her mind is in a completely different place than before she was locked up. If she keeps her mind focused the way it is right now, I'm pretty sure prison is in the rear view. But I can only hope that's 100% the case. I guess it's the same for most, if not all of us.
