My boyfriend just got to Oakdale he will be moved in a couple months. How come they cant have visitors there? Do they send them to the nearest place that has room, how does that work. And where in Iowa are all the prisons. I know of Ft Maddison. Could someone send me a private message with a list ?

hey guys, my guy is home......but, you need to watch out for the sad times cause they will hit all of a sudden...even tho my man was only gone for just a little over one year, things do change...big tme...my guy has achute pancreatitis and they did not treat him while he was incarcerated...therefore, i guess i have to put up with all their mistakes...so, even tho i am so glad he is home with me, i am usually lonely and upset every day...he is on pain killers, which makes him not the man i knew so long ago, thanks to incarceration...it sure gets lonely out here anyway, i am back on line and hope some one remembers me.....oopps,guys, he is up now...i am going to show him the PTO forum...talk to ya all later...chow

Question Anyone on line from Iowa?

Is there anyone on line right now from Iowa? My b/f is in Oakdale, and how do they decide where to take them after oakdale? And what do they do all day there? he has only been there for a little over a week, and I have only received on letter, since they only get 2 a week. And do you know if they hold there mail? And when do the inmates know or how do they know when someone sends them money, do they tell them right away? sorry for all the questions, i have never been through this before. He sent me a sheet with the info on it. do they get mad if you call and ask questions like this. I mean the Administrators?

Thanks everyone, for your responce, Billy will be in IMCC for another month or 2. Still not sure where they are sending him. Last week was so hard no letters. But they sent me all his stuff yesterday, my cats even miss him, they have been sleeping on his coat since I took out of the box, and me of course with his shirt. He sent me 2 letters in one day, which boosted me up enormously he wrote bdoth front and back on both letters!! (Not like him lol) And said something so special, that he's glad Im sticking with him, and that he loves me from the bottom of his heart, I have never heard him talk like that before! He has a decente cell mate which Im glad! And my baby is bald lol. I wish I could see him bald!! What have you done for your man in prison, his birthday is the 29th of this month, Im going to send money of course but did you do anything else, since I cant go see him. I think he's in general not sure about visitations. And can the have pics sent to them in IMCC? Again thanks for your help and your responses greatly appreciated, and feel free to add me to your buddy list.

Hi everyone... My boyfriend was just sentenced to Fort Madison. I don't know much about the place being I am not from Iowa. This really sucks being so far away from him.. Him being in Iowa and me in Florida. I haven't heard from him yet but it has only been a couple days.

My husband is in Clarinda - I moved to California before he got arrested - I knew with his drug problem he was either going to jail or die from his drug use. Glad for jail - it has saved his life and is slowly bringing him back. I only can get back to see him ever 2 months and he has 3 years left. Is Clarinda a Federal prison and does anyone know if there is such a thing as conjugal visits. I'm new to all of this - my husbands mood changes all the time - he can be so thoughtful sometimes on the phone or in his letters and then it is like - he is back on drugs and an ass. He has been of the drugs (meth) now for 8 months (as long as he has been in jail). Thanks

Hi chucks wife~ Glad you told us a bit more about yourself. Just thought Id answer a few questions for you. No Clarinida is not a federal prison. Its a state prison, I dont believe Iowa even has Federal prisons. And no, we all wish we could have conjugal visits (hell I just want a visit LOL), but nope Iowa dont have conjugal visits either. I know bummer huh?
Hope this helps, come and post lots, we are all here for you.
Hugs~Heather

Hi, in reply to chucks wife, my dad was in Clarinda and he said it was the worst state prison that he had been to, and hes been to quite a few! I thought that Fort Dodge was a federal prison but i could be wrong. If there is Anything else you want to know just ask, and they dont have conjugal visits.

Hi blueyez!

Welcome to PTO. I don't know about the program you have questions about, but I'm sure if you post a new thread in the Iowa forum Heather (Binky's Gal) can help you, as well as some other nice people.

Surf around and enjoy yourself...let us know what we can do!

My husband is in Anamosa but we are hoping he can be sent to Ft Dodge soon, since, naturally, they sent him to the place the farthest away from me. I only get to visit once a month, it takes an overnight trip, motel bill, money to kennel the dogs, three hours in the car after working 8 hours (graveyard shift) and then his counselor wants to know "why did they send you here?" Yet they "encourage visits". Then put his CLOSER. Anybody know what I mean? By the way, I'm Jan and I live in NW Iowa

Default He's in Anamosa

My husband is in Anamosa, doing a two and half year mandatory on a ten year sentence. Anamosa is a five hour drive one way for me, why they put him so far away, no one can explain. It's like it's a(nother) test. They say they "encourage visits from family and friends" then they make it as difficult at possible to make the visits work. Anyway, hopefully they can transfer him in September to Fort Dodge which is only an hour an a half away. He was arrested on December 24, 2003 so we still have two to five to go. This is his second number, I met, fell in love with and married him when he was in the first time. Ladies ~ STAND BY YOUR MAN!
