The Prison Wife's Tale- Frances Russo,RN,BSN,MA

Having a husband in prison is a stigma in our society. However it is possible to cope and get through this difficult time in your life. Let me help you along the way and give you a few tips.

I myself am a "Prison Wife." My husband has been in the prison system for the past 22 months. He was first in a minimum security unit, a place called "THE FARM, " with open doors, and no barbed wire. Now, he is in a half-way house, hoping to come back home the summer of 2005.

The "Prison Wife" is the forgotten one, as she waits at home for her husband. Our society takes care of the sick, the dyimg, the homeless, but the prisoner's wife is alone and forgotten.

She is faced with insurmountable problems....financial,emotional, psychological, social, stigmatization, health problems to face alone, children to take care of. She keeps the household "together," until her husband comes home. She works, pays the …

She has other children, all under 7 years old, who were unharmed.Police arrived to find the baby severely burnt other than her pj’s and her hair then later found a pacifier in the microwave.She is claiming multiple personalities among other things but could very possibly face the death penalty because it is considered torture that resulted in murder.

Judge blocks Bustamante's confession and allows her to be moved from jail : News : ConnectMidMissouri.comAmericas darling, Alyssa Bustamente- the 15 year old murderess who killed 9 year old Elizabeth Olten in 2009 is now 17. She went to court Monday and the judge allowed her confession to be blocked from trial on the grounds that she was coerced.A juvenile officer told her that she should tell the truth to her because she was a juvenile advocate and that juvenile facilities were for treatment only and not punishment.The judge also ruled that Alyssa be moved to an undisclosed location for testing although what sort of testing no one knows. Prosecution was not told where she would be moved as it would be a violation of her civil rights and she would not be able to receive a fair trial because prosecution would be able to figure out the defenses angle if they know.
What is Probation Good For Anyway?

The probation service is a community corrections function of the federal judiciary system that serves the United States district courts. Under this system offenders are allowed to pay for their crimes using a term of probation instead of a jail sentence. They may also be released from jail early to spend the remainder of their sentence under probation. Probation can be under direct supervision by a probation officer or unsupervised. Probation is offered to both adult and juvenile offenders. The probation service is in place to accomplish a set of aims and objectives. These objectives are accountability, safety, rehabilitation and reintegration.


Accountability
The probation service strives to lead the probationer to become accountable for his or her actions. Often times an offender will blame family, friends and society for their crimes. Serving a probationary sentence helps him or her to realize that they must take responsibility for their own action…

Molly Jane Roe raped, killed boyfriend's 17-month-old baby girl, Maleeya Marie Murley: cops

Molly Jane Roe raped, killed boyfriend's 17-month-old baby girl, Maleeya Marie Murley: copsThis is a breaking news story about Molly Jane Roe who apparently raped and then threw her boyfriends daughter causing brain damage that resulted in death. This only happened the other day and so details are still vague but I cannot believe this case. I will be interested to see what her defense is. I wonder if she will deny the sexual abuse and perhaps put the blame on the baby’s father.
I live way far out in the country. I'm talking at least 12 miles from a grocery store. I have problems getting Internet service that is reliable, cheap and available. I'm constantly searching for the best deal, one at least that works out here. I found Wireless Internet Service which has helped quite a bit.

Earlier this year we were bombarded with storms that knocked out power all over the area and turned us into a bona fide natural disaster area. Since I work from home and also attend some classes on line this was doubly devastating to me. I had to find some info and find it quick.

The FAQ page of the Wireless Internet site was super helpful, letting me know all the answers to my wireless Internet questions in one easy reference-able page. There are lots of pages across the web that claim to be helpful in finding the information you need but I was genuinely helped out by the information here.

Iraq Veteran Matthew Perkins Facing Death Penalty | Gather

Iraq Veteran Matthew Perkins Facing Death Penalty | GatherI went to court on the 8th to see Matthew. It was harrowing and sad. I wasn't allowed in at first because Id gotten there to early. I had to sit in the restroom and wait for the bailiff's to begin allowing people in.I sat in the very front row and hoped that when they brought him in he recognized me from the pictures I've sent him. He was very close to the head of the docket and came in quietly.The judge announced his charges of capital murder. His public defender expressed his desire to post pone the next hearing until he could get his motions in order and said that he would have many, many motions to file.Matthew was a bigger man than I imagined. Very thick but not fat. Stocky with many tattoos. His army background was apparent in his proud stance, build and tattoos. He was the recruiter who had a hand in my sons joining the Army and he lived close to me when he murdered his girlfriend. I felt a pull toward this c…

Good News for Chelsea Richardson

Lawyer Claims Misconduct, Wants Woman Off Texas Death Row « CBS Dallas / Fort WorthThis has been a long time coming but Chelsea Richardson’s lawyer has finally brought to light the 9 points of error during her trial, including that the prosecutor withheld vital information that showed Stephanie Toledano was the mastermind and actual murderer in the case.This will probably only result in a life sentence for Chelsea but she certainly deserves a chance at parole considering her age at the time of the crime and the fact that she was coerced into the actions that caused the deaths of her boyfriends parents.
