My son has a Parole hearing coming up in OCT..(my birthday present) At first we were real happy about that, Now not so sure. We get a email saying his hearing has been moved, but when I called a few days ago it was on the 6 now its on the 12. Let me back up,, and start from the beginning.
My son got moved, he is not longer at Varner, but now at Calico Rock, way up north. Each prison has it own date each month for parole hearing. Varner might be on the last Thursday of the month and Calico will be on the First Tuesday of the month. Since my son got moved so does his date, It was Oct 26, then got moved to Oct.6 now its Oct.12. But not knowing for sure, I call today. This will make 3 phones calls in the last few days, You would think when they pull up my son names it would have the right stuff on there. Today I hear for the first time. That Just HIS FILE goes to the hearing. DO WHAT?
My son looks bad on paper, but once you see him and get to knew him, you know he is a good kid, who just made a bad decision. If they could met his parents, they can tell we are good people. You don't know how upset I am over this. I can still write a letter and have it put in this parole file. I have even called the Prosecuting Attorney, to have him write a letter on his behalf. I have not heard back from him yet. I also left a message for My Son Counselor to call me back, to see if she will write a letter. Have not heard back from her.
I don't know what kind of letter to write:
Do I write it on "how he doesn't need the program?
Or do I write on How he is a good kid and need to come home?
Just to let you know, My son likes where he is , They have a bigger library, and less inmates. If you mess up, they ship you to another prison. So he likes that everyone has to play by the rules. He is now a class 1, which is good. now he will get more days off for good behaver. He is now off Hoe squad but they put him on a harder Hoe Squad. Between you and me.. he need the exercise. A little hard work doesn't hard anyone. But you didn't hear that from me.
