I have a 28 yr old son who has been using the better part of the last 12 years. He as been in and out of jail for burglary, petty theft, etc. This is his way to get his pills. The last time he got out he came home and did okay for a few months then started stealing from us to support his habit. We kept giving him another chance until we were out of town and he stole his stepfathers safe with his prescription pills and coin collection worth thousands of dollars. This was the last straw. We moved forward with pressing charges and told him we would not support him any more and that he was no longer welcome in our home. A friend bailed him out and he got in trouble again. Someone bailed him out again. He just got arrested again about a week ago for a felony punishable by life and is being held on a 50K dollar bond. Of course he says this is his wakeup call as he always does. My question is do I just sit here and let the cards fall where they may knowing that he could very well get a life sentence. Or do I fight to get him a lesser sentence that will probably still be no less than 10-15 yrs? I finally undertand that I need to let him reap what he sows but this is serious. I don't know what to do! I want my son back!
