thanks, Mike. Hopefully this morning we will have a response from the DA.
No, my 19 y/o jarhead is going thru school right now in Virginia.Is this the same kid that joined the service?
You're absolutely right. The police acted like they didn't want to take him in, but the shift SGT gave them the green light. I pressed charges for 'unauthorized use of a motor vehicle'. I REALLY hate wasting the police departments time and resources for this kind of crap, but I really needed him removed from the house. If the charges get tossed I'm o'kay with that...I NEEDED him out of the house for awhile before I lose my mind, or put my hands on him. Out of all of my avenues, this is the only one that I could rationalize.I won't be suprised if the police tell you its a civil matter. Has he had permission to use the car before? Good luck, and I hope you get it worked out. Maybe he will get sent to TDCJ this time.
I couldn't have put it better myself. It time to man up, for both of us.Enough is enough....
I totally agree, "Tough Love" is the ticket to straightening out this young man. I wish you the best and I hope when he's 40... he'll thank you for booting his ass out in the world................we're gonna let him try the world on his own.
Thank you for the words and insight...I never ever thought it would actually come to this, but there comes a time when, as a father, you just get tired of being shit on. I'm at that point now, and luckily so is my wife. I am still willing to pay for his schooling(if he decides to continue), and pay for his cell phone(for my wife and my piece of mind.) On the flip side though, I'm pretty sure he will be violated by his probation officer...he's got 4 more years of probation and I'm pretty sure they are done with his antics too. FYI--they actually violated him last month for not paying his fines and not having a job...nothing ever came of that though.like i said, you don't know me, but i am just trying to give some encouragement....good luck.
No. He laid it out very straight forward though. Get a GED, pay your fines and court fees, pay restitution to the victims, 200 hours community service, and you will be on probation until this is completed(5 years, or until all the above are met). Once he completed everything, he would be released from probation and the charges would be ex-sponged from his records. Almost like it never happened. Felony burglary and felony assault...I think it was fair enough.did the judge say why he hit your son so hard?
