That's horrible, you should suggest your dad to put his savings somewhere your mom can't get ahold of, like maybe in your account. And have a word with your mom as well, though seeing as this is the 4th time I doubt she would change her views about her brother.

OP's Mother: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me eight or more times, shame on me." If OP's mother has done this four times for her brother I bet she'll bail him out fifth or sixth time.

If he's is in prison, that implies he showed up in court, thus meeting the bail requirements. Your mom should have gotten the money she put up for bail back from the court. Maybe all is not lost on the car front...or there's a different reason they don't want to give you one.

Or he skipped out and got caught, or the mom actually paid a bond (which is not refunded). I don't think it would be an FML if the money was returned.

Except that she said "bail" and if he skipped out on the bail, he would've been picked up on a warrant and taken to jail, not prison. However, I was merely suggesting there might be more to the no car thing than that one event. I could be wrong and maybe the wrong terms were used, either way I can see how it'd be disappointing to be in OP's position.

The person I feel most badly for in this is your mom. She still loves her brother, even though he's an alcoholic and an emotional and financial drain. I know how hard that can be.
