  • I would still keep contact. No matter what they're still my sibling and I love them dearly. My brother has been in an institution since Nov 07. I talk to him. He's got drug/alcohol issues. I still love him not matter what.
  • I would do my level best to write and visit her!

  • He/she is still my sibling. There are a lot of good memories and more to be had in the future. I would support them and help them so they wouldn't go to prison again.
  • Keep in contact;) Still Family;)!!
  • I would definitely visit and write.
  • They are still family, I'd keep in contract. I suppose how and the frequency might depend on the crime....like, if he hurt someone in the family or something.
  • Well it matters what they did...but most likely keep in contact.
  • If they went because they hurt a child, in anyway, Id never speak to them again. Ever.
  • either i have tons of brothers and sisters or i have none? you decide
  • This is actually a really difficult question for me. My older brother (my only sibling) honestly treats me like crap. I would still visit him in prison though...I don't even know if that makes me better or worse.
  • He/she may have committed a crime and everything, but he is still my sibling and one sign of it is showing my support during those hard times.
  • I would visit.
  • First I would like have a mental breakdown...My brother is like my best friend D: dunnow what I'd do without him... After that I would go visit him and tell him he's an asshole for getting arrested xD
  • Depends on how close we were, is we were close then I would keep in contact as much as possible if we weren’t close then good bye.
  • I would never disown or abandon my brother or sister under any circumstances. I don't care what they did. I would maintain as much of a relationship as possible and wait for them to come out. If you can't count on support from your own family.... forget about anyone else.
  • Gosh, what did they do? If they killed another family member or something equally awful, that would take some time to get over. I wouldn't write them off, but I might not visit until I resolved those issues. With my need for understanding, I'd write for sure.
  • If they hurt one of my kids or parents or someone close to me then I doubt it, but for anything else I would say yes I would stay in contact with them & visit.
  • I can't even imagine what my brother and sister, on my mother's side, could ever do to get them sent to prison. They are so white-bread, cream cheese, straight-laced and mainstream, I doubt they've even had a parking ticket! I don't know about the brothers and sisters on my father's side, I never hear from them, but they were little hellions when they were kids. If I knew where they were I'd keep in touch, but even my father seldom hears from them.
  • i would be mad and let them no my feelings but i would visit them as much i could and i would right them. they are blood. and i love so i will be there for them untill the end.
  • I would do everything I could to see them as often as possible. I wouldn't love tham any less. They just screwed up. There's generally something behind why they did what they did although, to be honest it would depend on the crime. If my sibling was a child molester he could rot there and it would be fine with me.
  • I'd visit and write all the time, because they would be innocent of course. ;)
  • If it was a drug offense I would certainly try to talk and see them as often as possible.
  • I'm afraid that it would entirely depend on why he/she was going to jail. If the crime was against a child, or it was rape, I would feel differently than if it was theft or tax evasion, for example.
