I've alluded to dear brother in law before. I love him. He is my favorite of my brother in law's. When he's straight he's a great guy. When he's drugging he knows no bounds. He is a crack addict. Has been for about 30 years. He's been in prison twice - mostly for theft to obtain $$$$ for his drugs. In and out of rehabs many times. Which leads me to our current family dilemma. My dear inlaws (nearing their 80's) called last night. They had gotten 3 overdraft notices from their bank. Long story short they found one missing check from the back of a new box of checks which they keep 'hidden' under their bed. They figure it amounts to about $1500. They can't do anything until Monday morning when the bank opens. There is no doubt brother in law took the check. He's done this several times to several family members before. Including us. So - we know if they go to the bank Monday - the bank will press charges. He will go back to prison. Probably for 15 years - which given his age will be close to a life sentence. A bitter pill to swallow. Or if they don't go to the bank (they will take the $1500 loss) they would avoid prosecution. At this point he's jobless - too many no show days. He has no insurance. He has no car - he always pawns the beaters the family buys him for drugs. He rides a bike and we live in Michigan. Winter is here. I'm sure he's ready to be evicted from his tiny apartment. I don't see any solutions. I can't imagine any program taking him with no insurance. And I'm not sure at this point he even wants to go into a program. Any insights? We need them. Thanks in advance.
