    I am sending a sympathetic hug your way. Dealing with "the system" is so stressful on so many levels. I do understand.

    I'm sure you realize that as a parent it is a major bummer to have other in control of your child and his future....especially when they are bungling the job....but the only way to survive is to accept the things you can not change and have hope for the future. I'm sorry. DDD

    I am sorry he will be in real jail but that is how it is in many places. 16 is the age when quite a few states change from juvenile to adult in the eyes of the law. Most likely he will be kept in a separate area in the jail though. From what I have seen when my son was in the local jail here, the kids under 18 were housed in a separate unit.
