    Can we all pray, rattle beads, and keep candles burning that he doesnt get into anymore trouble but as it stands after TODAY....he has NO MORE COURT CASES!!!!

    He is completely free except for being on probation but that is going well.

    He had his trial today for driving while license revoked in Columbus County and he was really scared. He had already served 15 days while waiting for bail and such plus paid over 1400 in bail. The judge called his case today and his attorney answered that he had been trying to get up with the ADA to work out a plea agreement for over a month but she couldnt be reached so he was asking to set Cory aside for motion to come in when that could be done and the Judge said...NO way...this has taken long enough. Cory just He was scared.

    The Judge, the acting ADA and his attorney all huddled up together and you could hear my name whispered several I think that had to do with the fact that I was the one who brought the felony charges so the judge understood he wasnt dealing with a violent felon but a young person who's parents put their foot down to bring him up sharp. They broke away and asked Cory to come up.

    The Judge asked Cory if he ever had any alcohol related traffic violations. Obviously they had his record but they wanted him to answer honestly. Cory told dont drink and drive. The judge asked his lawyer how many hours he had put in on the case and he said about 2.5 and the judge asked Cory if he felt he should pay for that time. Cory said yes he should. The judge said...right answer young

    So all said and done...he walked out with having to pay around $400 more and if he doesnt get in anymore trouble for a year, its gone.

    They told him to go talk to DMV about getting the rest of his driving record cleaned up because really, he is not a bad driver. This shouldnt have got to this place.

    His lawyer told him he got an early Xmas present because this Judge is known as a hardcore judge. It was because Cory has no alcohol charges and because his mom showed she was a stickler for keeping him in

    Only in this group could I say that just being on probation is NOT having court

    I think this is the first time in over...well...since he was 17 that he hasnt had a court date looming sometime in the future.

    Merry Christmas to Cory!! :D :D

    Best news in the world for him. Cuz he sure has been trying hard to keep on the straight and narrow. A huge "reward" or whatever you want to call it for behaving like a easy child, which encourages more easy child behavior.

    I know this has got to be a huge weight off his shoulders and worry off his mind.

    ((hugs)) :D :D :D

    That is great and I am so happy for Corey. I think the board aunties are all proud of him! Now that's the way the "system' should work - with a little common sense and compassion mixed in. It seemed so unfair for something from the past to come back and bite him in the butt when he was doing so well and trying so hard! I hope this is a whole new beginning for Corey and that he feels like a huge weight has been lifted from his shoulders!

    YAY for a clean slate. Crossing my fingers while knocking on wood that he knows how to uses this fact as a turning point.

    Great news! I loved the fact that Cory told the judge he should pay for the attorney's time. That's huge, especially with a lot of difficult child's thinking the world revolves around them coupled with their deep sense of entitlement.

    Wow, Janet! Amazing isn't it? I completely understand- difficult child has been in trouble and tied up with the legal system for almost as long as Cory (4 years now) and IF he can go without breaking the law, breakiing PO rules, and I don't need to call cops on him (for pulling a disappearing act, for example), he'll be out of the system.....well, I guess whenever the PO decides- but hopefully, that will be sometime by the end of 2010. Maybe we can have a party together to celebrate?? I know I will feel like having one!

    Well K...Cory actually started with the legal system as a juvenile when he turned 10...but got his first court case at age 12 I think...then finished his juvenile probation at 15 and a half. No more trouble with the law until he was 17 and treated as an adult. Im only counting this stuff as
