Default Ex-Prisoners / Cons Please Sign In!

If you have been incarcerated any time in the past, please sign in here. If you would like, please also tell us when and where and anything else you feel is relevant.

Please ONLY use this thread to "sign in" and not for general conversation. My goal for this thread is to let PTO members know who we are in the event they have questions for us, and for future ex-cons/offenders/prisoners to see there are others of us here.

Thanks,
David (Fed-X)

Default Fed-X / David - Texas

I did my only real prison time in the Feds - Beaumont F.C.I. Medium - 27 months.

I have also been in the Federal Detention Center in Houston, Harris County Jail, Montgomery Co. Jail, Brazos Co. Jail & Boot Camp, Williamson Co. Jail, and a number of other Texas jails.
As a Juvi I did 9 months in TYC (Texas Youth Commission) and guess I didn't get enough, though I always seemed to skirt the law for the most part.. Doing just enough to walk the edge but rarely falling over. Have been on some type of paper since 1992 and am really looking forward to getting off in the next year or so. Federal Probation is MUCH easier (if you are doing right) than state.
My fed time/charge was Felon in possession of a firearm.

If anyone needs to know about Fed prisons, especially F.C.I. Beaumont, I'm here to help.. I can also cover some state related things but I will usually send you to someone else I know for that.

That's it in a nutshell, and I am very retired from that way of life.

David

I was wondering what was how your first day when you arrived to the halfway house? Did you need anything when you got there they didn't provide that was allowed. For instance I'm organizing a tote of personal hygiene items for my guy(shampoo,soap,razor/shaving cream,tooth brush/paste,towels blanket, pillow,pjs,undies,socks,shoes,clothes,pen/paper/envelopes,money,cell phone,personal radio/cds,snacks) Do you have list or where I can find a list of the halfway houses in Texas. Thanx in advance sorry for the many questions. Any rules I need to know for him and me??

Well hello David! I am going to be serving 12months and 1day (haha, one day) in FPC Bryan* I was wondering 2 things, can you legally smoke there do you know, and, how do they calculate good time in the feds?? If you can help me by answering these question I would be forever grateful.
Respectfully,
Adriana

I was a guest of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Extradicted into Western KY... to the Paducah Hilton. (Mc Cracken County Jail). Tried in a DP case... Given LIFE and sent off to Petticoat Junction... A place actually called PeWee Valley (aka the Pelvic Valley) home to KY's only State Women's Prison. The irony of me being condemned to a place called PeWee Valley is only apparent if you've read Gulliver's Travels.

The conviction had been overturned and made new law concerning Prosecutorial Misconduct. The retrial was again to be heard by a DP qualified jury.

5 Years and 105 Days after it began the Commonwealth saw fit to let me go. Nothing about KY county jails, nor KY cases surprises me.
Oddly, I don't startle easily.

I'm one of the few lady veterans around here. Probably the only person you'll meet who's survived 2 DP prosecutions, or walked out of a LIFE sentence.

I'm here because I am an advocate for prisoner's rights, female offender programs, longterm offender programs and Access to Courts issues. (see the thread on KY's Resident Legal Aid Program --- I advocate IT too. http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/sho...&threadid=9410

The INTRO post is on my profile now as a Homepage. It pays to know your audience.

What I can do here is listen, learn and find some use for some of that extraneous information and savvy that comes from having been called the defendant, the Lifer, the Legal Aid and of course, just my warm and fuzzy self.

Once and unfortunately, a possible future guest of the fine Commonwealth of Virginia.

My future depends solely on the results of my appeal, facing the possibility of residing in Hotel Virginia until 08.

However, I am looking at life with a positive attitude and plan on being home in California alot sooner than 08.

What can I do here - mostly listen, I am blessed that I don't have much experience to rely on. I would really like to keep it that way!

But I can listen and at times offer my shoulder for some one to lean on.

You made it!! That is what made me believe in myself after prison. When nobody would hire me because of my criminal background; I remembered your courage and perseverance............... I am doing great now!!! Thank you Patti!!!

Default Bradshaw Unit- Texas

My name is Andres "Andy" Morin III. I was sentenced to an 18 month term in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for theft of over 10,000 dollars from the JC Penny's Company when I worked for them. I never saw the 'gladiator style fights' or rapes that were common at other units. However, violent fights were common at Bradshaw. What I remember scared me the most was the hunger, boredom, and monotony that accompanied me each and everyday of my incarceration. I was my own worst enemy. And, only I could pull myself out of this misery. I fell into a deep depression and nodody cared. Why should they? They were fighting their own demons. I had to realize that that loathesome, horrid, and hideous creature that I had come to fear was a very familiar one. That creature was me.

I had to change from the inside out before the very rage I'd carried around for so long consumed me. I still struggle with my emotions from time to time. But, I've learned to redirect my anger, and rage at the prison system into helping people who need it. If I can answer one question from a family member of someone who is incarcerated, that is what it is. One less person is 'in the dark'. One less person who needs an answer. Although, my reply may not always be what someone wants to hear, it is always to the best of my knowledge the truth. And, the best way to change 'the system' is with the truth.

I am the sister of a so who is waiting to be sentenced. I am in TN. I want to tell you how touching your post is!!!

It sounds like you replaced the rage you had with a passion! When people have a passion they have purpose in life. God bless you for making yourself available!

My family is in shock as my brother is. He has always been a good provider with a good reputation of paying his bills. At 30 years old he invested in a situation that did not pan out. He got in deep financial trouble. He had no support from his wife and ended up leaving her. He started drinking way too much and eventually got on drugs. This situation was a one time occurrence and not with a child! He is facing 8-15 but has not been sentenced yet. He has been in county for a year.

I know from past posts that he is facing a rough time due to his charge. Is there anything you can add?

Again, hang on to your passion! Broken

Thank you Andy. I am so happy to hear that you are doing great now.

I want you to know that it is people like you that have given me the courage and strength to carry on.

A lot has happened since I made that post, and life has continued with it's ups and downs as it will be for you. But we are both survivors - no not just survivors - we are fighters!

The appeal did not go as was hoped, however God leads us down the paths he feels we need to follow not the ones we want to follow.

Now my journey home to San Francisco is done, I am home, where my heart has always been. I have a good job as an Aircraft Systems Analyst and we have a wonderful apartment less than twenty yards from San Francisco Bay. My first day at work is this coming Monday.

We just arrived home last Monday.

More importantly, I am at peace with life now, I am at peace with my past, and I look to my future with confidence.

It was not all good, and I paid a heavy price, but like so many others before me, and so many after me, success can be had if one works hard, keeps the faith in God and one's self.

Keep tough my friend, keep your head high and know that you are an inspiration to me and many other as well.

Patti

Talking California Youth Authority

I Was Committed To California Youth Authority When I Was A Minor,age 12, Served 3 Years. I Was In Camarillo School For Girls,
However It Was Co-ed When I Was There. I Orginially Went In With
9 Months, Seemed Like I Got In More Trouble And Kept Getting Time
Added, Finally Release Shy Of My 16th Birthday. It Tripped Me Out
Some 20 Years Ago, When I Got Stopped By A Cop For Speeding And
He Mentioned That I Had A Cdc # On My Record Sheet. Yes Today At
45, I Still Have That Cdc # From Cya, I Am Not Proud That I Robbed
People's Houses, And Committed Assualt, But I Am Not Ashamed For
Being In The System, It's Just One Of Those Things. I Have Learned
Alot From Those Days, And It Has Stuck With Me Threw All My Adult
Hood, My Husband Is A Convict, And All Tho He Has Made Mistakes And Is Back In Custody For A Tech Violation I Am Not Ashamed Of Him Nor His Past. We All Have To Do What We Have To Do To Survive
In This Place Called Earth. Luckily I Have Not Returned To Prison
In All These Years, And I Hope That I Never Find Myself In A Situation Where That Could Happen. There Was Another Thread That
Said Would You Go To Jail, Haven't Read It, But If I Had To Change
Places With My Husband, I Would. Life Is To Short As It Is To Have
Regrets.

S/O some 40 years removed. Conviced 1962, order clearing record 1968, Certificate of rehabilitation 1999. Waiting on governors pardon that will never happen. I've never been in prison, spent 2 1/2 yrs in a CA State Hospital, did 5 yrs probation in 3 yrs.

Here at PTO I do not feel I have any answers, but I "try" to give something to think about from a different prespective from what's posted, on many topic's and a laugh or two along the way.

I'm just a guy that has lived many years. Seen a lot, traveled some (5 countries), read and try to learn from creditable people in the professional world.

I served five years in Beto-1, Been out for 5 years as of Oct 2nd
all in all I served 7 years in TDC. I now have a wife and kids that keep my idle hands busy. I am NOT planning on going back anytime soon. Advice to others, settle down, figure out what your goal in life will be, and don't make the same mistakes twice.
I am a statisic....I felt like going back about a year after I was out, I am glad I didn't make another mistake or I wouldn't be here to enjoy my boys..

As a teenager, I seen 'jail' several times, but never got in any major trouble.

In 1996 I was charged and convicted of B&E, 2nd degree burglary, conspriacy to commit armed robbery, and accessory after the fact of murder.
I pulled all my time in the state of NC, including the Iredell County Jail, NCCIW in Raleigh, and FCCW in Rocky Mount.

I've been out of prison since 11/98... but am still on paper.

I served many short stay's as a juvenile, and too many to count in California's fine San Bernardino County Jail, I then eventually graduated to the Calif. State Penal System for Women, served a 9 yr. senrance only to get out and go right back in 3 mos. later, and so on and so on. Violation after violation until I grew up and figured out that who ever it was (I could'nt remember, too many drugs!) that told me prison was cool, LIED. Your not lame if you havent been to prison, so I thought, you were REALLY LAME if you went to prison. 2 years off parole now and holding strong!!!

I spent a year in texas prison the hobby unit. I will be glad to help anyone that needs help with questions or what ever. It was graded the worst womens prison but I can't see that any of them are that great. Your freedom lost means it's lost don't matter where you are. Hobby has lock door policy that means your door opens every hour on the hour and you better be ready to get out or go in they don't wait. Some guards are easier than others and might let you in but not every time just depends on how there day has gone. It's not a place you want to go believe me so think hard on the choices you make and friends you keep it's your freedonm your playing with and theres nothing more precious than that. roberta

I've done two stints so I'm a two rodeo veteran and have permanently retired from the gulag system. Smile. First time down covered the early 90s and I was on Beto-1 and Brisco Unit in Texas. Second go round I did 8 flat and was recently released and did time on the Smith unit, Brisco again (!), and the Darrington Unit where I spent 6 of the 8 flat time down on the 12 for reataliation in ad. seg. confirmed a leader in the Aryan Brotherhood. I quit that ride some years back in case you don't already know or try to give me a hard time about it. Smile. All in all I have over 11 years done day for day in Texas Department of Criminal Justice. My advice to any of you is that if you don't reside in Texas stay away!!! This state is lock em' up happy. Keep the Faith!
