We haven’t experienced wartime rationing since World War II.

How readily we forget.

“Conference call conducted with Foster & Hamilton. Hearing will be held on April 22, 2016 at 1:00 pm in Kosciusko Circuit Court, Warsaw, Indiana. Sheriff of Kosciusko County to transport P. Gingerich from Pendleton Juvenile Correctional Facility to Kosciusko Cuircuit Court on April 22, 2016 and return him thereafter to the proper place of confinement.”

    I’m pleased that a date has been set. A date who confirms one of my feelings, namely that they will held Paul behind bars for six complete years before give him a chance to freedom.
    But for the time being, my message to Paul would be: Courage, the end of the ordeal is near.

    “proper place of confinement” = “adult prison”??? Sorry, mon ami, but I fear the end of the ordeal is not near. The real hell on earth for this young man is about to begin. 😦

    For the time being, the hearing has not been held and no one can predict what will be decided by the Court. I will continue to hope it will be the best for Paul. So I don’t think that it will be a stay in an adult prison. A halfway house is a place of confinement, as well as a home is, for someone placed under electronic monitoring. These are the kind of transitional measure I fear for Paul.

    The agreement entered into in 2013 promised a number of things, including the forthcoming sentence review hearing, but based on Paul co-operating with various requirements, including full engagement with his rehabilitation program whilst incarcerated in Pendleton. Although he has fulfilled most of the requirements of the 2013 agreement, it has also been well documented here and in other places, that he has not engaged with the rehab program fully, and no doubt the authorities will use this to prolong his stay in the prison system as they will say he has not fully accepted responsibility for the crime he committed. I would guess that they will simply put off making any firm decision until he turns 21. One of the agreement elements was that he would not spend time in any adult facility, so they could actually keep him in Pendleton until his 22nd birthday before finally having to either release him on parole or go back on their earlier promises using his lack of engagement with rehab as the excuse. So yes, I agree with Frank above, the end is not necessarily near.
