Niece shots up oxycodones and whatever she can get her hands on, not even sure how bad the problem is since I don’t talk to her or her mother (my sister).
We known for awhile that she had a pretty bad problem, but the problem came to a head when her and her boyfriend started being friendly with their grandmother (my mother) and stole $100,000 from a lockbox.
They eventually confessed which was good because they had no fingerprints or anything to convict them.
Since then my niece says she didn’t steal any of the money her boyfriend did, then she changes to different stories. She is always lying. Her mom and dad stand by her, not really realizing how serious her problem is.
They think her grandmother is terrible because she pressed charges against them. They will be sentenced on February 20. I hope they get at least five years in prison.
What really gets me is my niece has not told her grandmother she is sorry or admitted what she has done. I told my mom until she does that she will never recover. I am also a recovering drug addict, from alcohol and cocaine (crack).
My question is do you think she has any remorse for what she has done, and does jail time usually straighten people up?
Our family has never been close, but this has gotten us totally torn apart.
