Default How many have ties to an FCI Medium?

**Please note this is only on Medium FCI's. Other polls are started or will be by end of this weekend.**

What FCI Medium (Federal Correctional Institution) are or have you been affected by?

If you have a loved one inside, designated or have been there...please let us know.

This is a multiple choice poll which means you can choose more then one option for those who have traveled with the BOP!

Thank you in advance for taken place in our polls!




Loved one started out in FCI Beckley.

True, but the omelettes were pretty good! Not sure what the place is like now since they opened the hospital a while back.

Hello TxYellowRose, your post caught my eye, as my son too is in an FCI. He was in one in our home state of S.C. but got the chance to move to a new one in WV when it was 1st opened a couple of years ago. They took almost all of his adult life away from him with a maximum 15 yr. sentence, which is ridiculous. I agree that he had to do some time but he didn't even deserve 1/2 as much as he got. He's not a criminal type kid at all, just got caught with drugs after missing 3 out of 12 probation appointments, while on probation for a small pot charge. A guy that he was with had a gun and they charged 3 people for illegal possession of the same firearm. Made no sense to me, but without a LOT of $$ no one has a chance at getting a criminal attorney. This new FCI was built for 1200 but has between 1600-1800 already. He enjoyed the chance to get some peace and a little quiet when he first got there, but now it's loud and just like the previous one he was in. He had hoped for a better job at this new place, but supposedly the guards were intimidated by some of the inmates in most of the jobs, and he couldn't stand being around that. Well, I just wanted to say hello to another mother who I'm sure misses her son as much as I do, which is daily heartbreak. Drop me a line back if you want to. I used to try to get on this site but always seemed to post my things in the wrong places. I feel the site is rather hard to find the way around. Know that you're not alone, and I hope your son is getting out sooner than mine. I'll support him and miss him until he's home, but the waiting is horrible. Hang in there and pray for our sons.

Do you mind telling me what a 'med' facility is? Also, how do I know if a FCI is a medium FCO or not? Thanks for any help you might be able to give me.

Hello, I was wondering if you could tell me something about marianna. My son is at Big Sandy Ky right now and just got his medium status and he can go anywhere he wants that has the RDAP. I live in Southern Florida and Marianna would be the closest to me but I was wondering what it is like there.
You can email me at jaybird33324@comcast.net

thank you for any info you can give.

Jay

My hubby is in FCI Englewood. Does anyone know if he will move once his classification is changed to low? Colorado does not have a low facility, therefore I wonder if this is considered a med/low or not at all. I know that Englewood does have a camp next door. I hope he stays where he is and then just goes to a camp afterwards. That way I can continue to visit with him every weekend. Thanks in advance for any information that anyone can provide.
