My boyfriend and I had been dating for about 4 months before he went to jail. He lives about 800 miles away from me so i'm not able to visit him. We were calling eachother but the phone company blocked the calls. Now the only thing that i have left to do is write letters..which take about a week or so to even get one. He has been in there for almost 3 months now and i already can't deal with it. I've never felt so depressed in my life! I know that we hadn't been dating that long before he went to jail but i had fallen for him pretty quick. I had never been treated so good by a person in my entire life. He would do anything and everything for me. I feel so bad about him being in there. I'm not sure how long its going to be until i even find out what his sentence will be. Considering that he hasn't heard anything or even gone to court in the 3 months he has been in there, im sure that its going to be awhile. It is his first offense so im hoping that it lessens the time he will get even just a little. The reason he is in there in the first place is because he broke into a pharmacy and stole a number of pills. Does anyone know someone that has done this crime or something similar, and the amount of time that they got? He only has  a court appointed lawyer.

Any kind of feed back would be really appreciated!

How long is your boyfriend in there for? My boyfriend still hasn't found anything out for sure yet. His lawyer did say that he is looking at 33 months if he takes the plea bargain, but now he is saying that she is trying to get him a split sentence so he will only have to be in there for about 8 monhts and serve a little over 2 years of probation. I'm hoping that he gets that rather than the 33 months in jail, but it seems like such an unlikely thing. :(

I feel your pain to.<br />
I have only been dating my boyfriend for 4 months as well and he just left yesterday for prision.<br />
We knew this day was coming but it just came way to fast.<br />
<br />
I'm a mess as well.. I can't affford to talk to him as much as I would like at all....<br />
But know that your not alone... I'm going through the same thing it sucks... I hate it.<br />
<br />
But eventually oour boyfriends will come home to us and we can live happily ever after.

I know :( im just hoping that he doesn't end up in there for years. I don't know what i would do. It would help a little if i were able to see him or even talk on the phone...but i can't..In the letters that he writes me he always makes it seem as if he is going to get out of there soon...but i know the likelyhood of that is slim to none.

Well...stealing meds can be pretty bad. Especially if he had intent to sell...just have to wait and find out.
