Well went to difficult child's hearing today and turns out it was just a bail hearing. The public defender asked to reduce bail from $15,000 to ROR or 10%. The judge denied it. So difficult child has another court date of 8/17/09. One of those where you show up at 8:30 and stay tilll his case is called. Also the charges have changed with new developments. Now charged with 7 felonies. We still have no idea what amount of time he is looking at. So he just sits and waits just like the rest of us. I am very worried about my step dad. He is so broken over this. I don't know how to help him and I don't think he will go to any meetings or counseling.
