Default Wife Just Went to MCI Framingham - Help

My wife has been in MCI Framingham since 4/11. She is serving 120 days for 2 DUIs. The few calls that I made to the MCI administration regarding phone use, mail, etc. sounded positive and were helpful. During my conversation with my wife, she told me that she can earn early release by attending classes and other programs, although it is not clear how this works. Does anybody have details regarding this process, such as days earned off of her sentence for class hours (assuming it works that way)? Also, as soon as she arrived there they confiscated all of her prescription meds that she takes for depression. She is in real trouble without them. Is this standard practice? I will contact her lawyer on Monday morning regarding this situation. Any comments or advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to PTO, badgerboy! I don't have any information for you concerning your questions, but hopefully someone will come along who will. Also, be sure to check out the Wives and Girlfriends forum. There a bunch of great guys in that forum that I'm sure you will enjoy meeting.

My sister is currently in MCI Framingham, and it's not a secret how they work to any of my family. She participates in parenting classes, church and whatever else she can. The workshops that they give you do give good time, I believe, but don't quote me on that! I know in BHOC, you get 12 days a month good time.
About her meds, they have a place where inmates can go and take their meds everyday. My sister is on depression meds too, and we usually talk on the phone before she goes to take them.

Good luck with your wife!

The most good time she can get is 7 and a half days per month. She could get 2and a half day for a job, 2and a half if she signs up to parenting class or some other class and 2 and a half for ged, computer class or education of some sort. I did almost 3 yrs and know she needs to ask around but usually she can go to rec during her movement and sign up there for all 3. Hope this helps good luck

Yes, they can get good time but not for all classes. She can ask her CPO but submitting a slip. As for the medications, usually it isnt a problem unless they are sought after medications. During intake they would do an assestment for mental health then a bridge order to get medications if they deem apprpriote. Prision is a hard place to have any MH issues. Honestly, you have more support if you have major MH illness rather than depression. (That used to be the practice but it changes so, ask for MH and see what they say.)
