My nephew served his 7 years, and has come home to try to rebuild his life. I wish someone would explain to me how or why these people who have done their time would have the money right as they got out for things like probation and support groups. I understand the need for these things but how in the hell are they suppose to pay as soon as they come out. And then because they hsve just gotten out and have no income it is the family that ends up paying still. I do understand the need for these things but to have to pay right away. Are there any programs available for these people. You pay for your probation, you pay for the support group that is mandatory.. All this with no job, nothing. Does anyone know of any programs that might be out there. It is hard enough to find a job but to try to get one being a felonine, a recipe for diaster. And a probation officer who is being such a hard ass, like she has something to prove. I am just feeling like this nightmare will never end. Does it ever, will it ever???
