Can you sit by your loved one or do you have to sit across from them? Is there real food in the vending machines or just snacks and candy? Can you play cards or games while visiting? Thank you in advance for your replies. Ali
Also I go every month so u can pm if u have any other questions..

I just recently "reunited" with my long lost soul mate. He's in Forrest City, and honestly this is all foreign to me, I've never been through any of this, if there's anyone that's familiar with it can you message me or anything?
He's due for release on 4~6~2016, I cannot wait!!

Sorry, I found this after I sent you a message. I don't know my way around this site yet. So what's the deal with everyone lined up on the sidewalk outside? I'm assuming to be the first one in but doesn't it depend on how fast you get your paperwork filled out on what number you are to get called back? If there is a system I don't want to step on anyone's toes, I live 13 hours away and don't get down there much so all I want is to get in and see my guy a fast as possible. Thank you for all your help.

It is a Federal Correctional Institution in Minnesota...Unfortunately, I live in Connecticut, so it's not exactly right around the corner. She was victimized by dating a guy with plenty of money who was a meth dealer, and who also "repaired cars" as a front. She drove a car to deliver to someone as a favor to him, was stopped and busted when meth was found in the car. As it turned out, she was one of 22 people arrested as part of this meth distribution ring! She was only with him sporadically over a couple of months' time, but was taken down with the rest of them. She got 110 months as a sentence, and is nearly 3 years into the time. I met her via snail mail when a friend said she should write me a letter! The tragedy is that I have a home, a good job, and plenty of creative opportunities for her, so a really nice comfortable path awaits her. She had a lousy upbringing, not much parental guidance or supervision as a teen, so made some really immature stupid decisions, (her description), so a very tenuous beginning. All she wants is to live a normal, sane life, but it will be some years before she has that opportunity. Too bad, because she really deserves a break, and a second chance to do things the right way. At only 27 years of age, the felony drug conviction will follow her forever. I will help and guide and support her to the best of my ability, and, God willing, she has the chance to live a good "second half" of her life!

Wasn't the law for mandatory sentencing changed? Can she try to lower her sentence???
Also there are drug programs she can sign herself into to help lower her sentence. Prayers for you both!!!

Well, she got what she got back when sentenced. She also stupidly, wouldn't cooperate with the feds at the time from a misplaced sense of loyalty. Later, it was discovered that the feds had been watching this group for well over a year. There is a program called rdap, and we have been trying to get her in it for about the last year, to no avail!! If there is an outstanding warrant, it prevents you from entering. Last year, I did the research and traced it to ADA county, only to find it wasn't from ADA county. Now, for the past 6 months, I'm trying to have the warrant recalled or quashed, which actually exists in Snohomish county, Washington. She lived briefly in Idaho, (ADA), then with her pot smoking/growing father in Washington, (Snohomish). she had a failure to appear charge back in 2008. Has been incarcerated in Minnesota. THEN a warrant gets issued in Oct of 2015 for the charge in 2008!!! Since this is in the system, she cannot get into rdap. Obviously being in prison precludes her from dealing with this, and not being able to deal with this makes her ineligible for rdap. Such a damn simple administrative type issue, but when it creates such a barrier, it becomes quite a large problem!! With the amount of time she got, it would cut a year from her time. So, I continue to try anything, including currently appealing to the Snohomish court system, from whence the warrant came. The struggle continues...Thanks so much for asking, and belatedly, welcome to PTO!!

So much work on your end! You are an amazing support. I pray I am able to comfort my brother and understand the system as well. And hopefully, you figure out a loop hole that benefits her. Thank you!

Well, I do all that I can do, and also sending plenty of mail, (funny stuff, articles, cut outs, printing pages from here, and all the wonderful aspects of living in this area), along with books makes her time a bit better from an entertainment standpoint. If you do similar things to brighten your brother's days, he will appreciate it forever, and won't forget your kindness. Sending paperback books through media mail isn't even that expensive! That's pretty much all we can do, but it gives value to us in the doing. Thanks for reading and writing back!

I have heard it has a high percentage of SO's there so it's one of the more safer places for SO's. I would like to know more about it if you can help. Thanks.
