Default Federal Correctional Institution - Edgefield

My fiance is an inmate at FCI Edgefield, he just went in last week for a term of 15 months. Not as long as some but long enough for me. I have researched the entire bop website. I was just wondering if anyone knew of anything about this prison or anyone who is in there that could give me any info. How long is it before you hear from them or can go and visit them. It is killing me with all this waiting.

Default Fpc Edgefield

Hey my husband is surrendering to the FPC in Edgefield, Sc does anyone have any info on this camp. For some reason I was under the impression that he would go to Montgomery and now I am freaking out that he is going to Edgefield so any info would be great.
Thanks

I want to know the same thing. My father was suppose to go to Coleman or Miami in Florida so he could be somewhat near us. But for some reason the Marshalls think moving him to South Carolina (9hrs away!) is a better idea....!!!!! He has a 10yr old!

Default Edgefield camp- music, internet, etc.

My dad is suppose to be moved to the Edgefield camp shortly and was wondering:

-Do they have music equipment there? (if so, he'd join a band for sure)
-Will he be able to email us?
-Anything in general you want to say about this facility?

I would also like to know the reasons for him going there in the first place. We live in central Florida and it's about a 9hr drive...I know my dad was recommended for the drug program, but he's only serving 24 months so I've been told he may not get in...But perhaps that's why they are moving him so far, b/c there's an opening in the program for him???.....

any info greatly appreciated.

hey its me, your dad can not e-mail you and i know at one point my husband was playing the guitar there. so they do have some musical instruments there are alot of people there from central florida who are not in the rdap program and not eligable for it so that is probablly not the reason for sending him there.

Right now, they are on "lockdown" which means that, even when your phone number is approved, he won't be able to call until they're off lockdown. And that may be quite awhile. He'll be able to write once he has stamps and envelopes. He can those when his commissary day comes up, if he has money on his books. Hopefully, you'll hear from him soon. Stay strong!

Thank you for your reply. I have read on other posts that they have basketball, softball, handball, etc. but did not see anything about weights. Do you know someone who is there that told you about weights? Thanks again. Amber

Default Edgefield, SC Camp Visitation Schedule?

Does anyone know how the "every other weekend", or "even/odd" weekend visitation schedule works. If the inmate number is even, how do you determine what weekends are even? Thank you, Amber
