first off thank you doodle for your above comment you have obviously read and understood my intentions unlike "gross" who didnt bother reading the post where i stated that i work and pay for the hc and save us all on TAX dollars and the post where i said i dont want sympathy i simply would like to converse with fellow cc hc inmates. i have this to say to the lot of you: get a life or even a constructive hobby that doesnt involve surfing topix and replying with negative comments everywhere you see an oppurtunity because you have no life or hobbies or job or because your ol' lady, ol' man does this to you and this is your pathetic outlet or for whatever reason you do it,stop filling my forum with spam.

Inmate, most people are drama queens or kings. Many ignorant of facts, half illiterate, the other half cannot read. Screw what people say or think. Do your time, stay clean afterwards. If you fluck up again.......no one to blame but yourself.......

I did 16 months of a two year sentence on house arrest, but I found ways around it if u kno what I mean. They do take all your money but I learned from it and if tha police wouldve shot at me, I wouldve shot at them, because they don't have the f'n right to shoot u for any old reason. Just so happened my case was a shooting but I did my f'n time for that and moved on. But @inmate hang in there just kno they can't hold u forever or take ur money forever

Inmate,
I'm not on HC, but I've worked with many folks who have had their fair share of struggle with money, substance abuse, mental health, and the law. It's hard out there, folks. The only differences between most of us and Inmate are that we didn't get caught, and we have adequate supports in our lives to prevent trouble or help us cope with it. I'm a big supporter of HC. It saves taxpayer money and causes less disruption to the lives of the offenders and their family members. I'd much rather have non-violent offenders out working, going to school and/or raising their own children than stuck behind bars causing further drain on the system.

Inmate, talk to your PO about scheduling some approved visits to your favorite outdoors area. In my experience with POs, the main thing they want to avoid are surprises. I'm sure you can figure something out if you just make the arrangements well in advance. You might not be able to go far, but there are quite a few nice spots in the area.

Also, consider getting some treatment. There is nothing wrong with having a therapist to talk to and it could really help. If you get a good therapist, you might even talk them into meeting you out in the community so you can spend more time outside. If you're not going to a support group, do. It can help to be around other people who really understand what it's like to be in your shoes. Plus, it's more time away from the house that is allowed, as long as your PO is aware of your plans.

Good luck, learn from your mistakes, and move on.

As a family member of one who was on home confinement, I wish they would ban it completely! The officers can come busting into your home at any hour of the day or night and go from one room to another looking for the inmate. Your home is a prison. It is horrible for the families of the person who has done the crime, let alone the expense of the private phone with long distance that you can not use only a few minutes at a time. Inmates lie to the hc on their sheet, to get time to go spend with their women, saying they are doing painting, house repairs, etc. Quit whining because you are under house arrest and if you can stick it out, do it. I am against it 100 % and would never do it again to help a family member. Let em go to jail and serve out the time!

So sobriety sucks eh? You will get more than hc if you cant give up the alcohol! How do you think anyonw could feel sorrow for you when you made a statement like that? You had better learn from this, or there is more hard time to come for you!

Hey Inmate,

I was just sentanced to 9 months home confinement. How long have you been on it? I haven't even started yet because I need to find a place to meet the requirements but once I get settled in I want to start working on my future, I also plan on working out a lot...

Really? Should people on Home Confinement be conversing with each other? I doubt that would be best.

Everyone goes through times when they are lonesome and lonely. I do hope you can find someone to talk to but topix is probably not the best avenue to take unless you are looking for people to get into trouble with once you get out of the trouble you are in now.

You have got to be kidding me. Cabell County HC is a complete joke. You do what ever you want when you want. They need todo away with it and put all you sorry bastards and bitches in jail where you belong.

My cousin played Wii fitness games when she was on house arrests for 6 months. She went from flab to fab in just a few months doing that and watching what she ate, and she said that playing the Wii was fun and didn't even feel like exercise.
