My x husband just got sentenced, He got 18mo for revocation of probation and 18mo for possession with intent to manufacture. These are to served concurrently. They said he might only have to serve 9mo of it all together. They will be sending him to Oseola, Arkansas to the Regional Correctional Facility when a bed becomes available. If anyone has any information about this facility, please let me know. I cant find any information about it.

Big Daddy is in Wrightsville at Boot Camp serving 120 days for meth. We split up 14 years ago but are becoming friends again and I'm trying to help him through this.

My fiancee is in Diagnostic at Pine Bluff right now. He is going to either Newport or to Varner within the next few weeks. As for how long he will be serving, we don't know yet. He is on a parole hold right now, but still hasn't been to court over the other charges. If anyone knows anything about either of these two places, let me know. Thanks.

I think what you are talking about is the enhanced sentence for habitual offenders. Has he been convicted of atleast 2 other felonies? If so, that could apply. Did his crime fall into the 70% rule? ie. murder, rape, manufacturing, etc.

My brother was just transferred from Tucker to Wrightsville. Tucker was pretty good, today, I liked the concession at Wrightsville. They closed the one at Tucker down. I hated Newport..it was awful.

Default Forrest City

My Husband Is At Forrest City, Ar. To My Knowedge, It Is The Only Federal Prison In Arkansas. It Is A Low Facility,they Also Have A Camp, And A New Medium Is Supposed To Open Anytime. Right Now, They Have Several Hundred Prisoners From A Prison Camp In Fla. Due To The Hurricanes. Because The Place Isn't Yet Up And Running, These Men Have To Stay In The Shu, And Have Sack Lunches Brought To Them.
Hey, If Anyone Has Someone In Forrest City Let Me Know !
