MO: Denied release. Now what?

3 posts in this topic

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?

or a class A felony if the victim is seriously injured. (10-30 years in Prison)

Domestic assault in the second (2nd) degree is a class C felony in Missouri. (

Domestic assault in

the third (3rd) degree is a class A misdemeanor, (up to 1 year in jail, $1000 fine)
