Hi, I just wanted to follow up and see if you've heard from your son. Has he been moved?

Up until the last four months he seemed to be doing good. Told us he keeps his back to the wall, never goes into a room with large groups, works out, walks and runs the track and mostly eats in his room. Something is up the last four months, he is due to be transferred back to wisconsin any day so we are just waiting to see him again. He is either paying protection money or getting extorted for something as he has been desperate for money, literally calling everyone to get money sent. I know he is not using anything, he hasnt written in awhile and last time I talked to him he wouldnt or couldnt say what is wrong. He gets his phone minutes back on the 11th and I hope we can find out what is up. We are worried for his safety. You cant call and talk to his counselor as that will just make it worse. we have had friends wives and girlfriends call to pass messages to us saying he to send money to his account asap or his health would suffer. all of the time he has been in prison this is the first time we have worried about him, he is so far away and we feel so helpless. Its nice to hear from others with family in Petersburg, there are not too many of us here at the site. My sons name is Jeremy he is just turned 30. Im not sure what unti his is, his letters just go to petersburg low with his name and number so dont know if anyone knows him. God Bless you all, we know what you are going through, and I do think that when they get sentenced we all get sentenced. Prison is a barbaric institution that doesnt work, youd think that a country that is supposed to be so advanced as the US would realize that.

No, you cant bring your own camera. They take the pictures and then the inmate will receive them. Where my guy is, it took about 2 weeks to get our pictures back. As far as what to wear, wear a pair of jeans that make your butt look good and a simple top. Dont overthink it! Have fun and give us details when you get home!

Main thing is that you are THERE!! He will love anything you wear and the main point is to get inside with no hassles. You might want to check this thread of members talking about visiting at Petersburg. Double check the dress codes and make sure you know what you can wear.

You have 10 visitors points each month. Monday-Thursday visits use one point. Friday, Saturday and Sunday use 2 points each visit. You're only allowed to visit three weekend days per month. It's much more relaxed and enjoyable on weekdays where you'll most likely sit alone and not have to share a table because they aren't busy. I'd I'd go three weekdays each week and one weekend.

Petersburg isn't really in Petersburg even though that's the mailing address. There's a really nice clean hotel less than 2 miles from the prison where alot of visitors stay. I just can't remember which hotel it is or the name of the town because the address is Petersburg. I'll look on Sunday and get back to you.

I just visited this evening and I got there at 4:30 and was sitting next to my loved one by 5:10 and stayed until 9pm. We had a table to ourselves and so did everyone else. I hate weekends when it's busy and takes 2 hours to get in and you're sitting on top of each other. If I could get off another day during the week I'd never go on a weekend.

Good luck and I'll get back to you on the hotel.

I don't think so. I talked to my love tonight at 10pm and they were fine. I also talked to him around noon. I hope everything is okay for your man.

Default Info on FCI Petersburg Medium?

Hi,
My name is Shirley. My son is currently being transferred from Brooklyn MDC to FCI Petersburg Med. Does anyone have any current information on this facility? Of course my concerns are mostly over safety, but any and all info would be appreciated. I live in Massachusetts - so much for the BOP keeping him close to home! I plan to visit as much as possible, as soon as I can. If anyone has info, I'd really appreciate it!!

My BF got there about a month ago. I just had my 1st visit 2 weeks ago and it was fine. Yup..it seems OK and he doesn't have any complaints. It is actually pretty easy to get to..right off 95 a little south of Richamond,VA. I have to say it's much better than where he was transfered from!!! It seems that Petersburg Med is never on lockdown..so I would have to say most of inmates are behaving themselves.

Default Petersburg FCI Medium

My husband is in Petersburg, Va Medium. The place opened a new unit for all Pedofiles(sex offenders) for the atlantic Region. It is a place that holds programs for sex offenders but NOTHING for the other general population. The pedofiles are supposed to be housed in a separate unit...BUT THEY AREN'T!!! They walk around with everyone else. He is in SHU right now & they took our visits for 6 months because he came up with a dirty UA..so they take it out on the family. I hated going there..you can feel the hatred all around you..He won't come out of SHU because he has no visits, no commissary & rarely gets to call & he has told them that he was NOT walking around with child molestors & rapists & sexual offenders. I have already had to write the warden about my mail to him..He is 3 hours away from me & it takes him 7 to 10 days to get my letters & they will not give him the medical treatment he is supposed to have every 90 days. Petersburg is the worst FCI I have been to.

My husband gets released February 8, 2010...Thank God!!!

Guess what pammie..prisons are full of criminals..even SO's. If you piss dirty in prison you go to the SHU..Petersburg or any fed prison..wanna stay out of the SHU..don't use in prison. I'm not sure why your under the impresion that SO's are segregated from General population. Would you rather your inmate be 1000 miles from home..then you'd realy have something to complain about.

My husband has 6 months at Petersburg. He just arrived Friday after a few weeks in Chesapeake Virginia. I believe he has lost phone priviledges, although I haven;t received a letter yet. Does anyone know how long that may last? I asked him an accounting question during the phone conversation and I am worried he lost priviledges.

I doubt he lost priviledges over an accounting question. Most likely his accounts aren't all set up yet. His councelor has to approve his phone list and when my husband first arrived he had to bug his councelor to take care of it for him and finally went to another councelor to do it. It took about 10 days. From everything I've learned over the past ten months, Petersberg is one of the easiest prisons to do time. My husband had to borrow stamps and paper and envelopes while he waited for everything to be set up.

Don't worry too much you'll most likely get a letter by Friday if he meets someone who can show him the ropes and lend him a stamp until all his accounts are set up.

If you would have read my post correctly, he has asked to stay in SHU. And NO pedophiles aren't everywhere in the federal system & yes they are supposed to be housed separate..do your research & by the way my husband has been 1000 miles away, Florence, Texas, Kentucky..he has been in for almost 18 years off & on..so I think I know a little about the prison systems.

The feds have certain prisons set up for pedophiles..when they stated they was turning Petersburg into A SOTP they moved most of the other inmates to other facilities..do your research

First he is my husband & he is in for probation violation & no they can not give him more time...he has no more good time to take away..do all you people on here that have loved ones in prisons think your inmates are saints..there is more drugs in those places than on the streets & we have half the visitors bringing the drugs in & the other half are the guards.

He has maxed out his time..do you keep up with the new fed laws? Well my husband comes home 2/8/2010. His dirty ua was for marijuana..how many of the guards do you think get stoned with them? I don't disagree with marijuana being legal. With my husband I have had 18 years experience with the feds & their facilities. He is sentenced under the old-new laws..not the new ones that are being put into effect as we speak.

Is there anyone on here that has anything positive to say about anything? I spend hours reseraching federal laws everyday & federal prisons. I go to school for criminal justice & paralegal technology soon to recieve my BS. I guess me standing by my husband for 18 years off & on through his journey across the US to all types of federal prisons, that doesn't entitle me to know anything.

Thank You for your comment..it is welcomed

I was denied to FCI-Petersburg also but when I called to find out why, they told me they never got the form and to re-send it. I suggest calling to find out why. It can't make the situation worse.

Default Any information on Petersburg camp?

My father was just transferred to Petersburg Low (Camp) a couple of days ago. We probably won't hear from him for a while, it seems that getting things set up again can take up to a couple of weeks?! I was wondering if you could give us any info on the way things are there....what are the living conditions like? food? activities? how are the COs? My dad is 69 years old, and has been in for 3 years, but it has taken a toll on him....how is the medical attention? Hoping you are still on the boards.

Thanks
