I have just found out today that the boy is on parole, not probation. I guess he was caught with a lot of drugs. He called his parole officer today to talk to him and he issued a warrant for his arrest.
So would it be wise to make his mother come and get him now, or let him stay here and go to school until they come and get him.
I only want what is best for him, but I am just not sure what that is anymore. If he stops going to school now, I am afraid that he will never get his GED unless they will let him do it in jail. Thanks<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
BIG DIFFERENCE !! At this juncture, it is important that you, Momma and Papa all know the meaning of "Parole." Parole means that the boy is still serving his sentence, but not within confined quarters like a prison would be. Parole is a way to alleviate overcrowding, and taxpayer expenses, placing the expense of living back on the perpetrator. It does not mean he's free. Not only is the boy in trouble - because he knowingly violated parole by leaving the jurisdiction, but Mom and Dad are likewise in BIG trouble. Assisting a parolee to leave the jurisdiction is the same as breaking the boy out of prison !! There's gonna be a few arrests in this matter.
I don't care what his educational aspirations are . . . Get that kid back to where he belongs !!
PAROLE - Any form of release of an offender from imprisonment to the community by a releasing authority prior to the expiration of his sentence, subject to conditions imposed by the releasing authority and to its supervision, including a term of supervised release. 18 USC Congress has abolished parole for people convicted of federal crimes, but most states still offer parole.
