Customer Question

my son has learning and personality disorder . He has been in trouble with the police for drunk and disorderly recently . Has also been before the courts before for the same thing .
He allows people into his home , whom take advantage , encourage him to drink . Which always leads to trouble .
As parents in the process of trying to have the council move him nearer to us so we can monitor him better . We are also slowly managing his finances . How ever we are at a loss as to how far we can control , his income , to restrict his spending on alcohol .
HE is 34 . has no support services of any kind . never offered any for many years .
can you tell me if they could send him to jail? He recently threatened suicide . I am worried , he may not cope with prison .
We don,t know what to do . We have contacted a solicitor , awaiting a response .
