Default Preparing to go in...

Hi!
I was reading a response to another thread, and an excellent point was brought up that was hot on my mind.

Alexsci (I think) said that her son had gotten in touch with some CO's and former inmates to research and "get smart" about what to expect.

This is something I would love to do; does anyone have any ideas of ways that I might find anyone "experienced" (as in a former inmate or CO) who I might speak to/e-mail with to learn more? I anticipate having a delightful "vacation" at Warren County, before a "relaxing repose" at the hospitality of the state somewhere.
(a little sarcasm and humor!! )

This said, I know that bean123 gave me some great info on Warren County, for which I am really greatful. THANKS!!!!

I really appreciate the perspective I have gotten, but I expect that hearing it from a former inmate will add a whole new light.

Thanks!! You guys are great!!

My son knew someone who had owned a gym frequented by many people in law enforcement that is how he was able to make his connections with CO's. Many people are not open about having an incarcerated loved one....we were and found an amazing number of people who volunteered info to us on their experiences. I think that the info that you see on here is pretty accurate but everyone's experience will be different. My son is much younger than you so his experience will be different than yours. It won't be pleasant but you will survive.

What is it you are looking to find out? My husband did 17 years in various NJ prisons and he'll be the first to tell you that everyone's bid is different. No two people will do their time the same way.
I am sure he'd be happy to share his experience with you.

Thanks! I tried to PM you, but PTO says you cannot receive messages...
Is something wrong with the system?

Nothings wrong with the system...I just choose to block people because it gets to be very annoying getting PM's from people always asking for legal advice.
I'll reach out to you.

It's the truth, Meri...it got to be annoying after awhile with the same people asking for advice. If I answered the question in a post and you didn't like what I said in the post, what makes them think the answer would be different in a PM? People want to hear what they want to hear--not the truth. So, I only let certain folks into my little world.
There are certain people in here I don't mind helping and they know they can come to me anytime.
Christmas was great--the girls got spoiled as usual. Hope you, Jason and Jazzy had a good Christmas as well. Happy and Healthy New Year to you guys as well. Make sure you let me know when you'll be up here so we can have lunch or dinner. I'm dying to go to the Famished Frog!!! We'll have to drag gina with us too!
Much love to you!

ok ok... I'm coming up Martin Luther king weekend ok?? lol Sheesh... the things I gotta do for ppl.. LOL

But seriously, we will definitely plan on that. I already told Mommy that we're coming up that weekend so, let's make a date.

We're good Lis... had a nice Christmas. Quiet, the dang snow storm kept me from visiting the week before and no $ after Christmas so no visit again so that kinda sucked but I spent a nice day in my jammies with a good book and some snacks. LOL So I was happy. Did you and the fam enjoy your holidays? I bet it was nice!!

Ok, see you guys next month got it? Good... lol I will be in Morristown but we'll find a way to hook up. I might get lost going somewhere but I'll find my way. I will have my car so we can meet up.
