My Daughter Has Felony Drug Convictions Now What?

My Daughter Has Felony Drug Convictions Now What?

I got an email today from a woman in distress over her drug addicted daughter in jail. She asks for advice and I thought someone out there may have some experience to share with her. Feel free to comment or send me an email and I'll forward it along to her.

Hi Kelly,  
I stumbled across your website after receiving a letter from my 30 year old daughter in jail. She goes to court 12/7/17 on many felony drug related charges spanning over a few years.
Of course, I have known she was using drugs, perhaps not to the extent. I think mommy-denial plays a part. I allowed her to move back home on the home incarceration program, but that only lasted a month before the lies, stealing & drug use re-appeared. I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown while she was here!
I am trying to practice tough love, and honestly sleep better knowing (hoping) she isn't able to use drugs or break into my house again. Her letter is saying the expected, going to re-hab and getting her life together promises.
She has asked for MyCarePackage.Com and specific books from Amazon. The tough love part of me says, 'No she has stolen, lied and embarrassed you." 
The mommy part of me wants to do anything possible to help her. 
I fear, if I send her gifts, she will think she has managed to manipulate me again. I have rented apartments, turned on utilities, paid deposits for daycare, given her my car & then paid all the parking tickets. She has stolen my vacation money & used my debit card, brought strange men to my house, passed out with pans burning on my stove, left doors wide open during the night.........It makes me anxious just typing all the memories.
I just don't know what to do. I want to pretend its not happening, but it is. 
As one Kelly to another Kellie, what is your advice?
Thank you for your time, 
Kellie

Brenda Andrew Execution date

Brenda Andrew is the only woman on Oklahoma death row. She is there for the murder of her husband by her and her boyfriend James Pavatt.

     Brenda does not answer letters. It seems she may still have a bit of that pretentious attitude left over from her days as a respected deacons wife. Those days are over, hun.

     There is no scheduled execution date for Brenda yet. Oklahoma lists its dates of execution for the prison she is in here.

     Every time I read about this case I am utterly amazed at how stupid these two people were. She may as well have advertised their guilt on a billboard in front of the house. Both Andrew's and Pavatt's appeal were systematically denied without comment in 2008.

The little Scorned episode "The Sunday School Killers" at the top of this post is about Brenda and James and its only $1.99 so its worth the money.

Kelly "Turtle" Tibbs and her Chick Posse

Anybody ever hear about Kelly Tibbs? I read about her case years ago and was recently contacted by a friend of hers. I got to thinking about her again. I cant really believe she didnt get the death penalty.

She was a lesbian ring leader in her little town. She and her teenage friends were a little crew of lesbians that hung together and lived together. None had a steady home, all were from broken families somehow torn by substance problems or abuse or just plain neglect.

Kelly was the leader. Her nickname "Turtle" was the name she went by exclusively and all her followers tatooed a tiny turtle on their hands. This group was so odd. They were PeterPans lost boys and Turtle was peter pan. They traveled in packs and found food and lodging when they could. Everything was a game and they frolicked around everywhere they went.

Eventually a new girl came into the mix and began a half-assed relationship with one of the other girls. Emotions flew and she got murdered. Beat to death. …

Texas May Have an Innocent Woman on Death Row

Kimberly Cargill is on death row for the killing of her mentally retarded babysitter, Cherry Walker. Ms. Walker was found burned on the side of a rural road in Texas. Doctors had diagnosed her as mentally challenged in 1995, saying she had the living skills of a 9 year old.

Witnesses, some her own family, testified that Cargill was abusive and violent toward them and to Cherry Walker. Cargill was arrested in 2010 on child abuse charges and a custody trial was pending in which Cherry Walker was slated to testify. The state alleged that Kimberly killed Cherry to keep her from testifying.

Kimberly has always said that she did not kill Cherry but that she suffered from a seizure as she was riding in the car with Kimberly. She had been prone to seizures and Kimberly panicked. She tried to revive her, but could not. When she realized Cherry was dead, she set her on fire in an attempt to rid any DNA from her body. She was certain she would be charged with her death.

She was convicted. She wa…
