I am sentenced to 180 days, 90 on EHM and 90 in the work house. My husband which I am seperated from and father to my 3 children that live with me; has suffered 3 strokes with in the past 2 months. Because of his failing health I am concerned of the welfare and emotional state of my children. I am seeking to serve all on EHM. I spoke with my probation officer and was told to write a letter to the judge for a modification. How can i be most effective with letter, and what key point should I include?
