Today My Husband Was Sentenced...Today my husband was sentenced to a term of 60 months, in a federal prison. We are all still in shock. The judge was an very straightforward and he came off being mean. We all attended the hearing, myself with our two girls, his mother, sister and fiance and his brother and an aunt. We all heard when he told me husband that he didn't care to listen to anything he had to say. The judge pretty much said,I don't care and you're screwed. We did have a bit of luck though, the judge allowed him 4 weeks to turn himself in so my husband has time to give his 2 week notice at this full time job. My husband already spoke to his supervisor about the matter and she was very understanding. I know that 5 years is a long time, but i love my husband and we have 2 beautiful daughters together and he is wondering if I really am going to wait for him.
I'm still worried about how I will handle the situation of my 3 year old's father not being with us 24/7, I don't want to tell her he is in a prison because I want her image of him and memories of him to be good ones.
Also, all his family was telling me to move homes, we were renting, but i told them I couldn't afford anything else and I know sure as hell they wouldn't be paying my rent, so I'll b staying here. They were also asking me about what plans do I have for all his belongings, and I said I would leave them out because he will come back home someday.
Your advice is greatly appreciated and needed...
