Thank you, DU.
I just got home from bailing my 20 year old daughter out of jail on a $15K bond on charges that had to do with meth.

I grew up in the 60's and have gotten myself in more than a few binds but there was really nothing worse than H at the time. I'm thankful that crack and crank (meth) weren't prevelant at those times.

She might be looking at real prison on a stupid act and I don't have the money to pay the 40K to a lawyer to get her out of trouble.

She won't take my offer to get her into treatment and we have been estranged per her mom since she was 5.




If it weren't for you people I would be a bigger basket case than I am.



Thank you all, you DU denizens.

10. Also been there with my kid . In and out of prison in 3 states.
It's rough!

He's almost 50 now and maybe is finally seeing the light.
He is treatment for Hep C. It's working so far but how it will last - I don't know.

That meth is hell!!! Mine goes from Jekyll to Hyde right before my eyes and the violence!!!

8. Could your daughter qualify financially to be given a public defender to
at least explain her situation to her and give her advice?
