    I know of ONE.....my brother. I guess it depends on the type of legal representation you get and what people will come forward to say on your behalf. Yes he should have got a suspended sentance, but he didn't. So because of that, he now has a history of being in Jail.
    I meant easy as in it could happen so easily with them. Not that it was easy to live with, but physically it happened easily.

    I would not like the idea of dating an ex convict, however I do think it depends on the crime.

    A close friend of mine is married to an 'ex convict' - he went to jail for a year for involvement in a white collar crime he committed in his early twenties (they were together when it happened). She waited for him while he was in jail. He is a great guy who now (15 years later) has a beautiful family, amazing house and a very respectable career. I would trust him with my life. I think anyone who knew him would be shocked and surprised if they learned he had spent time in prison!

    Not everyone who has been to jail is a total scumbag, people do make stupid mistakes and can certainly turn their life around if they have a lot of good in them to begin with.

    I understand. I don't think it happened easily though. He was simply trying to defend another person and because of his size and strength caused the man to fall!
    It was an unfortunate accident really

    That's what I mean though, what happens then if he steps in with something else, breaks up a fight with kids, accidentally knocks one over and there you have a dead child. For me, no, not worth the risk. I choose the solo path over that.

    Nope. I've got a child. I'm not gonna risk it just because he could have been wrongly convicted.

    Would it depend on the crime, so for instances you would date some one who was in there for drink driving but wouldnt date a person who served a manslaughter sentence?
    I'd be more likely to date a "manslaughterer" than a drunk driver. Because you don't go to jail the first time you drink drive. You have to be inconsiderate enough to do it many times. Manslaughter on the other hand can be a one off. And my understanding if the law is that if you accidentally kill someone it's manslaughter?

    Something like that, I probably would overlook. But let's be honest, how many people in jail have actually been sent for this sort of situation?a tiny percentage.
    i know someone who went to jail exactly like tht so it does go to court.
