I care for a 90 year old lady who recently fell and got a black eye from falling. After she fell I made her she was okay notified her son and granddaughter of the fall took a picture and sent it to all of them. I even sent it to the care giver coming on after me who said that everything was ok soon after that the family decided a
they wanted to fire her for stealing money the Dr has said she's a fall hazard and this caregiver has seen her fall when she doesn't get her way she'll throw herself down now that she's bee
.n terminated she's hollering abuse knowing that it wasn't. I believe the sheriff wants to convict me. and send me to jail but so far he's only taken statements the family doesn't want me to go to jail they asked me not to quit the APS lady is getting one more statement from the family tomorrow then I'll probably get arrested if they know she's a fall hazard will they look at that or does it automatically mean I did it. I supposedly was rude and yelled at her I yelled to be heard because she's deaf what do y'all think.

Innocent I am checking in on you. I hope you are well. I feel if you lost your cool and did yell at this old woman and it was recorded. The judge will hear what you were responding to. This is your first offense and you won't get any time. Get with your Dr. and let him know so you can get into a program and the judge can also agree on some type of program as well to. I wish you the best of luck.

Yes. Stop reading horror stories on the net and talk to your lawyer and your doctor.

Innocent2, you either will or you won't end up with jail time. And yes, living with uncertainty about the future sucks. I try to cultivate faith and equanimity, and firmly and deeply believe in trusting God with my future. But I am going to confess something - last Thursday, we were told we had an emergency meeting yesterday in the afternoon after clinic and it was likely to be bad news...it was HARD to just wait for it through the weekend, and the nature of the issue was not forthcoming even though I pointed out it was stressful not to know. I was told only it was nothing I had done wrong personally, which was my deepest fear. SO I fully, fully understand your wishing someone could reassure you there will be no consequences for you. As I all too often pray for myself, that somehow God will make it OK when I am running late or have failed to do something else I probably ought to have done, I will pray for at least that much mercy for you as well. I will ask you to believe that fear is not the answer and that whenever one door becomes closed to you, a new one will be opened so that you can go on to live a better life than you have now.

You will not know until your day in court and your public defender is required by law to make the time for your defense.

How would we know "what judge won't give you time"? We've only heard your (several) versions of the story.

Im not sure what your lawyer doesn't have time to do? Explain this to you over and over? Take the advice of your lawyer and your psychiatrist. Get on meds, get therapy and find a different line of work. You don't sound as though you are tempermentally suited to caregiving.
