Feel like I’ve lost my son

On the 2nd October my son was arrested on our premises at home.
We were in absolute shock and couldn’t believe what was happening. My son got taken away and we were forced out of our home for 4 days. We live in a quiet village so this was devastating.
We were told our son was arrested for GBH with intent which we found unbelievable, only later to be told our son had been charged with attempted murder.
It’s been 2 months now and we can’t bear it anymore.
Our son did this for his then girlfriend who I found to be very toxic for him.
I feel like I’ve lost my son, I don’t know what to do anymore.

Dear @Dawn3

Welcome to the Community and thank you for sharing your personal post. It is understandable the way you are feeling having been given the news you have heard about your son.

Not having been in this position, I apologise I may not be of much help to you. There is a Prisoners’’ Families Helpline on 0808 808 2003, it is a free number, they also have a website Prisoners Families which would be worth you looking at.

I am sorry I cannot be of further help but do hope you will get the help and support as to your son and as to what to do.

Take care.


Thankyou Pepsi
I will have a look
