He said the staff are watching him like a hawk now and one in particular has it out for him. He had a horrible monthly treatment team meeting (that I'm supposed to be invited to in person or via phone but never am) and they told him he would not be eligible for early release. They said it was because he had been recommitted but the same person who told me that (his behavioral counselor- not to be confused with therapist) had previously told me he was eligible even though he had been recommitted so either this guy doesn't know what he's doing (this is the same one who can't get my phone number in the system right) or it's really due to difficult child getting on thei bad side with those charges he's gotten since being in. So, unless they flip-flop again on that, he'll be in until he's around 17 yo. He said the person that really has it out for him told him he seemed to have a sense of entitlement and difficult child commented to me in the letter that he didn't even know what that meant. Then, he proceeds to write that if I can't trust him when he gets out this time that he's not going to come home. He says he'll refuse to. I'm not sure where he's planning on living or exactly how he plans to go about it all. It's up to Department of Juvenile Justice and/or a judge to determine his placement and I don't know how much weight they'll put on what difficult child wants given his situation and hx. But rest assured, I'll be explaining to him what having a sense of entitlement means in my next letter. LOL! And I'll tell him that I've already asked his PO to look into him going to a half-way house. I think that now that he's over 16 yo, there are a couple of Department of Juvenile Justice options and a tiny bit less likelihood that dss will take him into their system even if Department of Juvenile Justice would prefer it to get him out of their funding pool and my bro is willing to have difficult child live with him. But I don't know, if my bro has started contacting difficult child in Department of Juvenile Justice, difficult child won't tell me and my bro could be working things behind the scenes to get them set up how he wants them.
