My boyfriend was falsely accused of something by a C.O. and was put in the hole this past Saturday. I know he didn't do what they said he did because he is smart and wouldn't risk getting into trouble over something so stupid. Plus he had 24 hours to sit there before getting his weekly phone call...24 hours to think of a lie to tell me, if he had really done what was said. So while I totally believe him, I am still very upset at the injustice of it all.
It's sad that it's so easy for guards to abuse their power and do things like this. He told me that they were going to look at camera footage and investigate the matter. However he said this two days ago and I haven't heard from him since so I'm assuming they either didn't investigate or they are intent on upholding their decision to put him in there, regardless of any information they might have to the contrary. The longest they can keep him in there is 15 days. If he stays in for the entire 15 days, he won't be able to complete the class he has been working hard to finish. Plus I'm afraid that this whole incident will look bad on his record when it comes time for parole next year. He was told that since he has no prior history of committing the offense of which he was accused, his time in the hole should not be held against him in the long run where parole is concerned. Still, I'm just really worried about it all.
On top of it all, I just miss him so much, it's not funny. It's been two days since I last heard his voice. We normally send JPays to each other all day long and talk on the phone at least once a day. This is by far the longest I've ever gone without communicating with him in some way. He already has a letter to me on its way and I have written him a letter every day since he went in. I wanted to give him something to look forward to every day while he's stuck in there. Still, I miss him like crazy and I can't stop thinking about this incident affecting his parole and wondering how he's doing and what he's thinking about and if he's eating ok and a million other things. I don't know what my point is to make this post. Maybe just to get some support from people who have been in a similar position? Or if someone has experience with parole and how write-ups can affect it? He went in the hole on Saturday and he told me the maximum time he could be in there was 15 days. I'm not sure when they start counting the 15 days but I'm imagining he won't be out until after the July 4 holiday, unless something changes.
This prison spouse life really sucks sometimes. I feel like I lost my boyfriend AND my best friend. His messages always got me through my day. He's my rock and it's been really difficult since he went in. We are on Day 3...12 more to go...
