How did I get here?

The following was sent to us via the "Tell Us Your Story" form and posted with the users permission.

By Nita:
My son was/is addicted to online pornography all types, and is incarcerated. He is non-violent, but being treated like he was.

I have gone through disappointment, embarrassment, guilt, depression, anger, money and now mislead.

The system said he would serve his time and get off with good behavior, and extra credit for taking classes. They never told us it's impossible to find a place for him to reside. His PO told me He has to wear a monitor, no internet access where he resides, Land line only. Must pay for weekly counseling and pay an annual fee to the city he resides in. He must also pay for a yearly polygraph. Now to find a job to do all this. If not able to meet these, he stays in prison.

What ever happened to second chances?

Not only is he punished, but so is the immediate family.

I don't know if these conditions are for all or they are making this up as they go along. I am wondering if an attorney can advise me or do anything other than take my money.

There needs to be risk assessments to this law other then black or white.
