I donít know about visits but they are getting out on lockdown a lot! There is a new warden! So everything is changing and theyíre getting lockdown for fog and all sorts of things! But lockdown when something happens is the worst! It seems like forever!! So if u donít here from him check on this site and keep an eye out for somebody to report theyíre on lockdown! This site has saved a lot of pain and stressing and anxiety of not knowing

I never encountered any of those restrictions in a federal prison, but USP Lee is a harsh prison, and bop wardens can get away with almost anything by uttering the mantra "safety and security". If the prison mailroom has a scheduled "open house", he can go there and find out for sure.

The inmate rules (A&O handbook) and the USP Lee web page include information about inmate mail, so if the written rules are different than the actual rules, he can file an inmate grievance.

Yeah that's all too much.i sent report cards and perfume on a few letters... talk to the mail room they said they sent out a meno but he didn't get the meno..he will be getting moved soon. The CO's got charges but the inmates get punished that's so crazy.

Ladies! FYI if your using Pigeonly check your bank account! They have taken the last 4 months out of my account $2.99 and then last month took $7.99 out on top of the $2.99 they took out. I called 11/15/17 and talked to someone and it was supposed to stop and I was supposed to be refunded all of my money in 10 business days. Well that has passed and they took money out again! Iím calling not only my bank to tell them I never approved of those charges but calling them to chew them out!

Iíve always used Google voice. Itís free. As long as they still have local numbers youíre good. Use the zip code closest to the prison which are 24263, 24277 or 24273

Thank you for telling me! I was using them but I stopped using them once they switched to the monthly only plan since I can't afford monthly plans as of right now and I still got money in my wallet. Do you know if they can send the money from my wallet back to me?

I thought we couldn't use Google Voice. I was told that I couldn't use it by several prisons that my LO was in
