Default Finally sentenced

I was just sentenced to 24 months minimum mandatory and also another 6 months consecutive for the other charge. I was lucky to get self surrender. Judge did recommend Sheridan as i asked. I am pretty positive with the self surrender i will have camp points. I am prescribed buprenorphine and wonder if the recent ACLU lawsuits will help me with that. Hoping for RDAP but either way i will work, learn, and get into shape physically and try to make the best of my time.

This will sound funny but congratulations on being sentenced... it's a step forward and gets you out of the "unknown." All I will say about SS is be prepared. My husband was sentenced July 1st. We were told we would probably hear something 4-6 weeks later and would have time to get to where he was going and plenty of notice. Thankfully we did a few things around the house that I wanted done before he left. He received a call on August 12th (a Monday) that he had until the close of day the following day to be in Arkansas (6 hours away) and that he was actually supposed to have reported on the Friday before. "Miscommunication" was blamed for the mess up. At least he was on house arrest during that time so they couldn't say they didn't know where he was.

I will say be prepared to not immediately have medications available. My husband was documented with bi-polar and took daily medication, something he was not allowed to take with him. It took 3 weeks before he was back on his medication. When it comes to the federal system they use the relative term "in a timely manner" and their "timely manner" is no where close to what you and I believe to bee a "timely manner."

Good luck moving forward.

I'll be amazed if you are prescribed buprenorphine, or anything that contains an opioid by the bop.

I'm sure it's a huge weight off your mind finally getting your sentence. I'm glad it didn't go too bad for you. Stay positive. I hope the time goes quickly for you. Good luck.

I agree with this 100%.

IF the BoP ever did allow this, and I can't see them ever doing so, it would be in an FMC and there are NO NO NO FMCs anywhere near you.

Not only that all FMCs are higher security than a camp. I have been in both; the difference is dramatic - a FMC is a real prison, a camp is more like a very low budget college.

I posted about this lawsuit earlier. I don't know about changes in BOP practice, but Methadone is definitely better than nothing. https://www.wgbh.org/news/national-n...ment-in-prison

You should check the BOP formulary to see if there is something close enough that a Dr can prescribe to you as an alternative in case you can't get what you need.

My husband had no problem getting any meds approved and did get them on his second day in the camp he was at, however, he was not on anything major and ultimately was fortunate in that he wound up not needing to take any of them at all during his time he was there, but was given a 30 day supply without issue. One of them we had heard could be a problem to get, but wasn't and he fortunately didn't have a flare up of the medical issue while he was inside.
