OT: FIL has an ankle monitor on - again
Help me understand why someone would have to wear an ankle monitor for a second time, because I am truly clueless when it comes to this stuff.
My FIL has one on again.
As some of you may recall from my past blog entries, in 2016 FIL was in a single car crash. The story is he passed out and hit a tree at slow speed. He was charged with DUI and child endangerment, because skid was in the backseat. He fought those charges and went through several attorneys, in the process. In 2017, he was convicted. His punishment was six weekends in jail, followed by a few months wearing an ankle monitor.
In so many words, it has come out that the 2016 crash was due to him mixing up his pills. Adderall or Ambien sort of thing, as he does take these regularly.
Well, he has a monitor on again. My in-laws think it’s silly and cute and joke about it, but they’ll never be truthful regarding it, out of fear of tarnishing their picture perfect existences. I could outright ask, and I have asked DH, but all I’m met with is a circular word salad response, in a very obvious attempt to dodge the question.
Does this mean he most likely broke a probation of some sort?
This stuff matters to me, because it is a very clear, hard rule that my children are never to be in a car with him when he’s behind the wheel, let alone left in his care - ever.
