Default My husband is OUT!!!

After 16 years in either jail or prison, given an indeterminate sentence of anywhere from 4 years to life, my husband is out and in a halfway house. We're both in shock- we really didn't expect that this day would ever arrive, especially since he had been denied parole this past April for no apparent reason.

Now- he's not technically on parole yet, but he's been allowed to go to the halfway house and he is doing very well there so far.

Those of you waiting for indeterminate sentences, or life with possibility of parole- keep going! There is light at the end of this tunnel.

Those of you who are LWOP, I'm sorry and I really hope your circumstances change someday. That takes a lot of guts to remain in a relationship like that, and I would have if that was my situation too.

Revenwyn, that's amazing news; I hope they don't change their minds again!

Would he be on lifetime parole?

Yes, until the laws change, he will have lifetime parole.

What he told me is they really don't bother past about 5 years or so though.

Well I'll have to find a place for us to go- difficult since I will need to move there and I currently am disabled to the point where people won't hire me but the government thinks I just need an understanding employer.

I also have to convince his therapist that he didn't "groom" me, because she can't see any reason why I would be with him otherwise. :-(

That is amazing news. I have been following your journey and I am so happy that he is now in a half way house and you will finally be able to spend the rest of your life with him as a free man. Congrats. God Bless.
