Apparently my husband is there now in "Special Units"? But they will not tell me why, when he was sent there, or how long he will be there. He has been in the camp across the street for 28 months now, then I stopped getting calls and letters last Thursday. I can't get any info except that he is over there. Does anyone know why this would happen?

My guy is in Ashland, Ky. I don't know a lot about the place, he has been there since late May, 2010. I know there is no air con. in the units, but there is air in the library. The summer has been very hot and humid. The inmates can "buy" a personal fan to help them keep cool. I'm wondering how cold its going to be come winter. Time will tell. My man has not had any problems as of yet. He had one encounter when he moved an area fan and another inmate wasn't happy about it, nothing happened except a push from the other guy. I have been to visit him once, if any one has questions on that I can try to answer any questions on that. Not much help, I'm sorry. But I will try to answer anything else you may think of, if I know the answer.

My husband is about to be sent to Ashland. I can't find much out about the place. Can you tell me some of the rules for the inmates and what he should keep his eyes open for. I mean.. it is prison.

from what I understand they have a decent sized unicor shop. From what I heard from someone who did some time there it wasnt too bad, I dont remember that many specifics. I think they had dorm style housing, and smaller "rooms" as well.

My husband is at Ashland. It isn't too bad for a prison. I wish the visiting area was a little nicer for the kids but even that isn't bad.
We will be much happier when he is home.

Hi saddad and welcome to the PTO forum...my husband will be sentenced to FPC in March, and I have been looking for information as well regarding the camp. I have been looking around to see what I can find, and here is what I have come across....At one time, Forbes magazine called FPC Ashland the best prison camp. They rated the 10 best. Just google FORBES MAGAZINE BEST PRISON CAMP....would love to share information with you...maybe we can help each other out

He says it's ok, but we are hoping to get a transfer to Michigan after he gets a full year in. So if you want to chat, hit me up anytime.

Other than Ashland being in the middle of nowhere, it sounds like a not-so-bad place to be as prisons go. It is a low security facility so the guard to inmate ratio is fairly low. My guy has been there 2.5 years with just under 2 more to go. The visitation room is small with not a lot to do but sit next to or across from each other and talk. If you are going for your first visit, read the rules on the BOP's website for dress code. I have seen my share of visitors get sent away to change because they didn't know or follow the rules.

The housing is setup in dorm style. If in a squad room, you are sharing with 9 other guys. Otherwise it is 2 to a room. Guards will do random locker and room searches looking for things that an inmate shouldn't have but over all it sounds like there isn't too many issues there as long as one follows the rules.
