Ok so my dd's bio-mom hasn't been around for over 3 years. She's been in jail with robbery charges and possession of controlled substances. She also is a diagnosed schizophrenic,is bi-polar, and has a major drug problem. Well she is currently in jail waiting for trial for her charges.  I guess she decided to ask the court to send her to a rehab facility for 6 months. In that six months that just started this week, she finds out that she gets home visits. So she will be home with her mother for Christmas. I can't believe how stupid this legal system is here! She has a record of taking off when shown leniency! And I know she will be right back on drugs the second she arrives back here. UGH! Sorry, I just had to vent!

I hate to say it- but there isn't much that can be done- due to that thing called "Innoccent until proven guilty"...Meaning that until she is actually sentenced- she is not charged with those crimes.

How long till court? Just becuase the place has home visits available doesn't mean she will be granted them.

That's the thing, they haven't even set a date. She must have been granted a visit because I talked to her sister and she said she wasn't happy about her sister coming home.

Quoting TyandCheyMommy:

I just plain hate New Mexico! The legal system here is a complete joke. I really don't think judges care.... for example making the news for a guy who's been arrested 127 times.... and they let him go!!

What about the guy who was arrested 127 tmes then get out each time?  What else do you expect from Burque?

The fact is drugs are too readily availabkle and from APD to the judges, everyone is crooked.  Just keep your DD at home away from her and don't let her inside.

Where in NM do you all live? I'm from  Los Alamos but now live in Las Cruces. I agree though, this state is way too lenient with some people and way too hard on others!

Ha ha or that guy on murder charges who was let go to attend a funeral and they busted him moving out of his apt the night before.

Seriously this state was made for criminals to thrive in.

They also just let a guy out of jail that was sentenced for downloading child porn! It's freaken ridiculous! Judge William Sanchez said he belived the guy has changed because he 'Found God' Oh come the hell on. They ALL say that bullshit! He was sentenced to 12 years and was let out after only 2 years WTF!
