Since ALL the Signifigant Court Dates Have Been on Someone's Birthday....

It shouldn't surprise me that I got a call from the Prosecutor's Office today. I mean, the preliminary hearing was on Hannah's birthday, and then trial was set to start on Eli's birthday. In fact, when I told April about it having been postponed until June, she was all like, "Well whose fucking birthday is on THAT day?" And yes, she said the F word; she isn't nearly as sweet and soft-spoken as she likes you to think (I love you!).

Today though? S. was calling to tell me that I need to be at court on Monday morning at 9:00. For another hearing. This time, though (drum roll please...) for a hearing to revoke CF's bail. Because he is supposed to be on house arrest and has violated those terms. Is this a guarantee that his bail WILL be revoked? No. But the fact that they have actually followed through on our police statements and set up a hearing means that they are, in fact, taking this seriously. I am not getting my hopes up thinking they will handcuff him and take him away right then; I am too cynical about the justice system for that. Hell, the judge very well could give him a verbal slap on the hand and tell him to not do it again, I don't know. But the very fact that we have this hearing? Makes me very, very happy indeed. Even if his bail isn't revoked, I hope that it really, really inconveniences him, and I also hope that he displays toward the judge some of the cockiness that he has shown to the public at large.

So there are many, many other things about which I would like to write, and I will tomorrow, but for now? I just can't stop smiling.

I fucking love you, too :)

You have just the right attitude about this. And don't you just love the thought of that fucker freaking out right now?

(Well, now that you've outed me, I had to get the F word in as much as possible!)

MindyMom said...

Woo Hoo! Good little birthday gift. Even if it doesn't actually happen, at least it made you smile on your birthday.

Ummm... my captcha is "holycha". That just made me laugh. :) LOL. I'm easily amused.

Having a gentle snigger with you from the other side of the world.

Even if not a lot happens I'm glad there is going to be a hearing, that your concerns have been heard.

I hope the fucker (um, yep, I say it quite a bit too in appropriate company) gets locked up until the trial date...he won't be so smug about delaying it until June then, will he..?? Hee hee...!!!

Wish I could be there to hold your hand on Monday, will be sending you all the love & good vibes I can.

Yippie! And I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I got looks from Hubs... I actually clapped at the news. I hope they revoke bail and lock him up until the postponed court date. Would serve the bastard right.

I'm rooting for two + months in a cell.

Rachael said...

If he goes to jail for violating the terms of his bail, it would be like a birthday present from the criminal justice system!

Happy Birthday lady. I hope it was good.

Also I hope that stupid ahole gets his bail revoked.

CableGirl said...

Small amounts of justice. Small amounts. Hopefully the fucker gets his bail revoked and that fact influences the jury in Hannah's favor.... not that she should need it, but maybe someone out there will realize what a scum bag he is.

justme said...

Hell yeah!! You are right, it may be a long shot, but I am going to spend every free moment from here until Monday putting it out there in the Universe that they throw the bastard back in jail!!!!!!

Glad you got another reason to smile on your birthday :0)

LiteralDan said...

That's great news, I'm here hoping for you all. What a great birthday present-- see, I just knew something would go right!

I'll jump on board and say it's even fucking great.

pisceshanna said...

YAY! I hope the judge gives YOU the opportunity to speak on behalf of your daughter to explain just HOW serious this is.

Dreamybee said...

Good luck on Monday. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

Happy Birthday! I hope you had a nice time. :)

I'm glad to know that they are doing something; I hope that he spends at least enough time in jail to be violated.

Anna-b-bonkers said...

A crack of hope, I am smiling with you!

HA! Revoked bail and locked up until the date HE had it postponed till! He's his own worst enemy... No, that's not even possible, is it?
