I heard the same thing, except that they may get an hour out on Monday and tuesday and hopefully this will be over by wed. And there weights may be taken away cause a group of guys used them during a fight or something.

Sorry, put Florence instead of Bennettsville <oooops>
When I visit I have extra clothes and shoes in the car just in case for me and the kids. Once I had to go to Walmart and buy clothes.

Welcome to Prison Talk. I moved your question to the FCC Florence sticky. There may already be answers here. Weddings in federal prison are possible, but the rules are up to each warden. Have him ask his counselor, and/or the Chaplain, to find out the rules at his prison within the Florence prison complex.

Marie: There are 4 prisons in Florence (minimum security camp; medium security FCI; high security USP, plus the 100% solitary confinement ADMAX), and the horror stories I have read are mostly about conditions in the ADMAX. The higher the security level of a bop prison, the more rules, so try not to confuse information about the other prisons, they are all very different.

hello for all!

I'm just trying to ease my mind and know what's going on.. so are everyone else getting calls and mails normally?

I haven't heard of my friend for a week now, and that's extremely unusual for him. I am real worried cause these past 2 yrs has been difficult for him and lot has happened, his been in and out of shu few times and I'm worried that he's back in.

If anyone would know just anything or has heard if there's something going on, I would appreciate so much it right now.

I just saw this post so sorry for the late response. I have LO there. He's been there 3 months. Appears to be much better than his previous place.

The minimum security camp is being sued for medical neglect. http://www.denverpost.com/2017/10/27...lost-testicle/
Quote:
Demuzio called the staff every day and was told reapeatedly that he would soon get the treatment. But even when he returned to the hospital on Jan. 13, 2015, and a doctor again told him he needed the operation as soon as possible it wasn’t scheduled, the lawsuit says. Another three weeks passed, during which Demuzio didn’t receive any further treatment or medication to alleviate his severe pain, the lawsuit says.

I too would love to know the answer to this question. How is the FCI (Medium) security prison in Florence. Is there a lot of violence or is it a relatively safe place? How or SO's treated? Any other helpful info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
