Re: I have another rant for today about my brother in jail

Do you have caller id? Can you just not answer?

I have no advice, but I'm sorry that a loved one has put you in that situation.

Thanks for following me around and posting on my threads tonight

If i don't answer he just keeps calling. He may be able to hear because when I answer he stops after a couple more calls. I don't actually talk to him because I won't pay $14.99 for a 10 minute call. He just blurts out messages in the short time frame they give to state your name.

What a turkey. Next time, just turn your phone to silent. If you don't answer for a week or so of his crazy calling, he may finally get the message that you are done with him for awhile.

Re: I have another rant for today about my brother in jail

This could go on for a really long time. For the first offense of stealing our cousins coin collection he just got sentenced to 8 months and he's only been in for 3. Now that sentencing is done they transferred him to the next county for arraignment then back to the original county to serve the rest of the 8 months then back to the second county for whatever sentence he will get there. I don't completely understand but he will be going back and forth.

Just a thought but are you able to press harassment charges for the phone calls? Because that is what he is doing, harassing you so you cave and give him money.

Really, I don't see a realistic way out of this unless you cut ties with him completely and ignore every attempt he makes to contact you. If you choose to maintain ties than you are in for a bumpy ride and will probably be venting your spleen about his ill treatment quite a bit.

I did call the jail once to ask the guards to tell him to stop calling. They put him in a cell with no phone. I guess my mom and his ex wife called and asked the same thing.

I know this is a serious situation but that just about made me snort milk out my nose.

What does he say?

This is a bit rude IMO.
