Hearing Update

Happy Monday! And a happy Monday it is indeed. While we did not get all we had asked/hoped for in court, it was still a victory. None of us actually had to testify, which is good, and the judge DID revoke bond, which is also good. CF is now in jail, but he can get out as soon as he obtains an ankle-monitoring device at his expense. Once that happens, he can go to the two AA meetings he regularly attends and to work, and that is it. I know, I know, it isn't fair, but this is something, and we feel like it is definitely acceptable. I have been looking online for info regarding the ankle monitoring device, but haven't been able to get much info. I hope it is hard to get, really expensive, and also extremely inconvenient for him.

That said, I think that I am going to have to do more private posts on occasion if I feel like I need to write about any of this. There were television cameras in the courtroom this morning, and I was mentioned by name during the hearing. It was all very tense and scary, and to err on the side of caution, I can't talk much more about it publicly. I think I have been pretty careful about making sure I am writing opinions and facts only, not mentioning his name and such, but still. If you haven't already gotten on my list for private invites, please do so now so that when I do a private post, you will get the invite.

Anyway, here's where I am now-grateful. Happy. Glad that we were heard and taken seriously.

Yay! I'm really happy that at least he'll now have to follow the rules of his confinement. (I mean, if he's stupid enough to figure out how to leave without the monitor and someone reports him, he's gonna be in really serious trouble). Plus, if anyone knows why he's in there right now, I'm sure he's getting roughed up. Jerk.

I am glad that you feel that this was taken care of reasonably and you need to do what keeps you safe...I too hope that it's completely inconvenient and outrageously expensive for his ankle bracelet.

Much love from out here..

Great news, am so relieved for you that his violation was taken seriously.

I hope he finds the monitoring device very inconvenient and humiliating.

Big (((((hugs)))))...it's a good day today.

Just a thought, what about setting up another blog that can remain private rather than transitioning from public to private..??

The word verification for this post is "conscent"...makes you think sometimes doesn't it..??

I'm relieved and glad he's in jail (he might as well get used to it!)

So glad for you that some good news came your way.

I'm in MI, our "Mayor" Was anyways... of Detroit if you watch the news or heard of it is in jail and was dismissed for many reasons, anyhoo... he is on a tether and had a big deal about it on the news recently here. They come from security companies, hook up kinda like wireles internet, through a phone jack etc, and are monitored by police with the boundaries at certain times. They run about 400 bux.

So good to hear some good news - and of progress!

Hope the ankle thing gives him a painful blister!

Thank GOD you got a little redemption. TV cameras? Scary, especially living in a small town. All you have to do is fart in public and you've gained enough notariety for public access tv.

You go girl. Things are rolling along now.

Tara R. said...

Finally the butthead is being taken off the streets. I hope he can't get out either. Major whack job.

Yay for some good news for a change.

Lynette said...

Yay!! Happy that it went well for you all. I hope that it is all kinds of inconvenient for him AND? I hope it gives him some sort of rash..LOL. (I'm all about petty vengeance)

geekhiker said...

Rachael said...

I'm so glad that it went that way. I hope the ankle bracelet gives him a rash.
