My son, Chad is a Level 3 but, has been in PC (protective custody since he was attacked and raped in his cell one night when he got back from work. PC is a small cell in which they can only write and receive letters and reading material sent directly from an authorized store. I use Amazon.com. All of his personal property, TV, CD Player, Guitar, food he purchased from the commissary, and food and many other items he was sent in a package he had received was put in storage. He stayed clean and worked very hard to be able to have the privilege of getting these items. After over 60 calls to the Prison and threats of sending in a private attorney and asking to speak to the Warden. he is finally getting the justice he deserves. Is being treated very well and should be moving to a Prison closer to where I live any day now. He will be sent to a softer section of Salinas Prison, known as the SNY (Sensitive Needs Yard). He is still pretty much traumatized and will receive Counseling. I can finally take a break. I think just about every department at Corcoran knows me :~). He was allowed to call me Monday and he sounded pretty good. So, if you have any questions about Corcoran State, I may be able to answer them.

My husband is in Corcoran but is in ADSEG/level 3 he has been there in ADSEG for 6 1/2months. He has been in Corcoran for about a year and a half but was there before for a year then he got sent to Susanville. .I've been trying to find out who I can talk to about his case. He was sentenced to a 15month SHU term for something he didn't do, so if you know anyone I can contact. It would help.Thanks

If he has been found guilty and sentenced to do this time, there is not much they can do for him on the inside. He would have to file an appeal for a new trial. Call the Prison at 559-992-8800 and push 0 when the guy asks for ext. #'s and tell the person who answers what you want to know. She will direct you to that person. write down the Dept., the name and ask for the ext.# of anyone you talk to. If you are told by anyone they can't help you, ask to be referred to someone who can. Be pleasantly insistent for an answer. I hope this helps and you will get some answers. My thoughts are with you.

Default packages to Corcoran

Does anyone have a list of things that I could send in a package to someone in Corcoran? I wanted to send him a leather journal, but it has a leather tie-strap on it, and I am not sure if they will allow it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Things change so often at Corcoran, it's always best to call before you send anything you might not be sure of. Call the Mail room at 559-992-8800 ext. 7759. There are a lot of rules. They have to stay alert, watching for that "file in a cake", you know :>)..

I know the quarterly packages have been stopped. There is talk of them being ok again, though but no one knows when. This has happened before. I do know books 2 at a time can be sent. Yet, today I was told by an officer they can have only one in their cell at a time? My son, Chad just wrote thanking me for the two books he had just received? They were shipped from Amazon.com on 9/11. Like I say, you just can't ever be sure. Everytime I go to visit, I call to ask what colors Cannot be worn. I was told no blue or tan. My son wore green. Well, that was not acceptable because it also says in the Visiting Rules Pamplet, any color the people working there wear is also a no no. And, the color of green was just too close to the guards uniforms. They do have a wardrobe building where you can go to pick out something that is acceptable. To be on the safe side, I would never wear solid colors. Again, always call first unless your one of the lucky ones who get to visit often enough to know what to know all the rules.

If your loved ones have any serious problems with abuse or injustice of any kind, you can e-mail Mr. Ken Hudle, the Ombudsman who represents the Inmates and he will investigate the issue. His e-mail is khurdle@executive.corr.ca.gov . He is very thorough and responds within a few days. Make sure you are being told the truth though, because his time is very valuable.

Hi curly
I'm a little new to al this and my dad is in corcoran and I had a bad run in with Access ca.qp I could not get in the website because it took forever to boot up and when I call them they putme on hold about 3 or 4 times so since my dad had already made out the list that he wanted I just went on head and mailed it off them the dove soap was almost to dollars and the chewing tobacco was almost $60.00 or more when I was sending in my order in Oct. now they change the price, just try to go to Access site and if you are lucky to get though just veiw the soaps and food items, it's the same stuff the prison sells for example the tone soap in the prison it's $1.00 through the vendor it's 90cent and the rice,beans,chesse,coffee I can go on and on is the same stuff. and dont get me started on Union supply it's like filling out a W2 form plus all they have is shoes and hats Im were's the food,soaps and stuff like that.

can someone please help me, I know I can't blame the prison for this mess, because he made the choice to move into thier house.

Hi JoseLady2004,
I'm pretty sure if you were approved, it would be given to Jose and he has to send it to you. That's how I got mine. Maybe he hasn't gotten it yet.

Great news! I'm pretty sure getting their time back depends on what the sentence was in the first place. If it was time without parole, I don't think so. You can always call the prison and ask for the Public Information Office (PIO) and see if they will give you the info or refer you to someone who can.
