As I sit here waiting to hear from my son…. will the ISRB comprehend the idiocy of the situation presented to them?….I am playing a game of ‘what if’. It’s passing the time but not overly comforting.

I’m thinking about Jace stuck in prison for another two years… what if…?? What would I do? How would he be? Fastest way to get a person to act out is to ignore the progress they have made.

What do they really want from a victimless crime? What if they ask him if he intended to have sex with a child, and he says….’No’….what then? “Clearly you haven’t yet learned your lesson young man. We think you need to dig deeper into who you are and accept your faults, ponder your actions, and come back in two years with a better attitude!’

We see that you have been a model inmate – but you are a sick person – a deviate – and until we can root out your evil intent, see the remorse in your eyes….. Know that we have broke you – well until then we cannot possibly let someone who doesn’t see things OUR way out among the public!

These are the what if’s floating through my mind – I pray I am mistaken – but I’ve been wrong before, and I will be wrong again.

So at this time, I’m here…..awaiting the word how my future, and that off my son, will go….When you read this I will have heard…and the answer will be posted just below…

What if……

It’s now 3:30 – I just received word from Jace:

“That was beyond nerve wracking. My mouth went dry, my legs were shaking. But I addressed their problems with my release and they seemed receptive. So, hopefully. Results come in 4 to 6 weeks.”

  1. There are some very sick and twisted people working in the legal system and others who easily believe the lies from these sick and twisted people. However, there are also many good, honest people, and there are courageous ones too, who will stand up and do the right things for the right reasons, even it upsets the sick and twisted people who don’t like it.
    I’m hopeful for Jace. Praying that his words fell on the ears of people who have the right intentions and are strong enough to do what they know is right, instead of giving into what someone else (with self serving purposes) wants.
    Unfortunately for us, the sick and twisted prosecutors and defense attorney in Midland (Alvaro Martinez) are still looking for ways to get what they want. They’re not happy that they couldn’t get him prison time like they wanted. So, they’ve come up with another way to try to get him there. These people are beyond disgusting human beings. They are monsters, but apparently, it’s ok to be one of those if you work in the legal system. 😏
    Prayers for us too, please.
    Praying for a good outcome for Jace 🙏🏼 May he always be surrounded by good, honest, well intended people and always be protected from those with dishonest intentions.

  2. I’d ask everyone to imagine if something truly terrible happened to you. You then go to your community for help. You go to the police, you go to a therapist, to the media, to your family and friends. Now imagine if almost everyone you went to for help told you ‘thats just the way it is’ and shrugged their shoulders. Not only did something terrible happen to you, but nobody recognizes it as terrible or unjust. Imagine how alone you might feel. The analogy isn’t perfect because every sex offense is different. A few may require harsher punishments than others and some few are just simply not morally wrong and calling it a “sex offense” is completely unjustified. Ljm, you’re right to be shocked and appalled by what’s happening to you and your son and there are some of us out here who feel the same way.

  3. I sincerely hope that the news will be good for you and your son. What you have written is being experienced by a lot of families in this country. It’s horrific and inhumane. In no way does the punishment fit the crime. Thanks for sharing your story.
