Place of incident: Missouri
My boyfriend and I were in an argument and (long story short) he is now incarcerated for domestic assault (he had no priors other than traffic violations). I was at his sentencing and the judge told him he could be released in 180 days if he "followed the rules". He has been incarcerated since 9/21/09 and the judge denied his release. According to the warden, he has been a model prisioner and has not done anything wrong. However, he is being told that although he has a meeting with the parole board in April, he will have to serve 33% of his 7 year term before he is even eligible for parole. Is this true?
Without his extra income, I am strapped for funds and cannot afford another attorney. Do we have any recourse or hope of him coming home earlier? Is there anything I can do?
