The court case went on, but I got a call about it the day after it happened, so I couldn't be there. Seems that the male registered a plea bargain, so instead of it being his sentencing hearing as i was told it was going to be, it was just him entering his plea officially.
At least I didn't miss much.
But his next court date is sometime in January. The entire holiday season, I get to worry about my kids seeing him out and about. If they do, it may ruin their holiday, and E's birthday too, depending on when/if they see him. It's something a mom worries about.
As of the 25th of this month, it will have been a year since his offense.
So much for justice being swift.
