My stepson's whereabouts have come to light! His girlfriend went to his flat last night to feed his animals, and found his phone there, so that explains why he wasn't answering it.
She managed to get hold of the solicitor at lunch time, and found out that my stepson was sent to prison yesterday for a two year sentence. Why on earth the solicitor didn't let her know that yesterday, we don't know. That was very frustrating and she said that he didn't seem very interested. She is going to call the prison and find out what the visiting arrangements are. We think he is in a local prison, so not far to travel, as long as they keep him there.
She understands that he may have to serve half of this sentence. But she has a lot of things to sort out with the flat, and all his possessions may have to be moved out of the flat, as it is a housing association property and the rent will not get paid whilst he is in the prison. I will help her as much as I can.
