Looking back on all of the calls I had to make: most of the time, I waited too long. There is this fine line with a small window between calling too early or calling too late. The last time I thought I called to early and when they released him the next day, he was arrested 3 days later for vandalism. He is now in jail for not going to court last month. Then there are times that I definitely waited too long and when that happens, it takes longer for them to come back to reality. That call is a difficult one to make but it is in their best interest that you make the call.
