I sure hope and pray that my son gets an early release..His crime was committed under the influence of drugs..He is now clean and sober and is the son I had before drugs came Ito his life...He stole to get money for his habit..I should be thankful that he got caught..,because if not he would have died from overdose, or found another way to end his life..He wanted to end his misery...I will say PRISON SAVED HIS LIFE.!!! He has been in ECI now for 8 yrs. He has been a model prisoner and is now ready to enter society..Now comes the hard time finding a job....I wish there are people working with the prison that will hire these guys coming out of prison..Dear God I pray they are out there..So, please have some mercy on my son. He is and was a gentle man not a bad bone in his body..He just made a stupid mistake one day all for drugs..He did not hurt anyone (not that matters at all) but he is now a GOOD AND DECENT CLEAN AND SOER MAN AND HE SHOULD BE HOME WITH ME AND HIS DAD..WE ARE UP IN AGE, POOR HEALTH ETC. AND WE NEED HIS HELP SOOOO MUCH AND HE IS HURTING KNOWING HE IS NOT HERE FOR US. Please consider Parole or early release for our loved ones... Thanks for listening..Send my son home...""MOM" ""

Actually your son is a victim. A victim of the war on drugs, of an intrusive government that thinks it can and should dictate to it's citizens what substances they can and cannot ingest into their own bodies!!! Drugs should be legalized! Alcohol is actually worse than heroin. Don't believe me? Research it online. You will see the truth, the truth they have hidden so well.

I feel for your son. He will have a very hard time. Jobs are hard to find for non-offenders. Having a record is not good. They check you for apts, little league coaching, jobs etc...it's bad. I am very smart, educated and I have a 10 yr old record and still am penalized. It is a LIFE sentence. Make no mistake. And it gets worse. But I hope he makes it! I hope he has the strength to overcome! God Bless!
