Last Thursday morning at about 4 am, I awoke to a recording made by the Sheriff's Department, letting me know my son had been busted for possession of marijuana (POM) and I could make bond the next day. Not only had they arrested him, but they had a warrant and had busted through his apartment door to get in.
I am a basket case. He is 18 years old and already has one POM pending. Now he has another POM and, due to the quantity seized, I believe they could make a case for sales. He could lose everything: computer, car, trust fund, etc.if the police want to push it.
I worked my whole life and paid for my son's college tuition and fees in advance. I worked very hard to get what was due to him from his father's and grandmother's estates and to invest it so that he could go to any college and become anything he wanted.
All so that he could fritter it away on traffic tickets, insurance premiums, multiple wrecks, cars, lawyers and tickets. Oh, and did I mention drugs? I have been sitting here reading the Criminal Defense Attorneys Los Angeles | California Criminal DUI Lawyers blog, hoping to find something to hang on to.
These are supposed to be the Golden Years of my life; it feels more like Torn Tin Years to me. Y'all say a little prayer for me, one for my dog and a big one for my son. He is not a bad kid, just stupid.
