I went with J to a see a very good criminal lawyer. What he had to say was very bleak and scary stuff but if we hire him all might turn out fine blah blah blah. Well I’ll bite.. So umm how much? Well he started out with a price of $25,000.00 to take my sons case. OMG!!! Well I guess I startled him when I broke into sobbing tears and he immediately said he could see that we could not pay that and he would reduce the fee to $10,000.00????????????????????????? We don’t have that kind of money. The lawyer also said that J needed to go into a longer term Rehab facility so the courts could see that he was doing everything he can to better himself. J is debating whether he wants to go inpatient. WHAT THE HELL am I living in the twilight zone? My son would rather go to jail for 5 years then go into rehab???? Which really won’t matter because we can’t aford a lawyer like the one he needs and nor do we want to help when he can’t even commit to rehab??? I am sorry this probably sounds like babbling but my mind is spinning and my heart is racing and I don’t know what I am suppose to do?
