Destiny,

I wish I could visit more. I was there in February and I will be back in June when school is out (We live in CT). I will stay for 4 days...Ahhhh!!!! Yes the visiting room is very small but they do have games and things for the kids to play and all I do is look into my honey's eyes and talk for hours. I usually go 2 out of the four days without the kids so we can have some one on one time. i can not wait til June. What section is your guy in? Keep in touch!
Anita

My fiancee' is in Leavenworth USP in Kansas and he and I both are from Louisiana.He is from Southern Louisiana and I'm in the Northeastern part of Louisiana. Judge asked that he not be sent to area where he is from or the area I'm from. He was designated to El Reno Oklahoma but while he was at the Transfer Center in Oklahoma, he was redesignated to Leavenworth USP. He has a security level of 11 which requires him for a medium facility or FCI. He's in for probation violation for not completing a drug program in which the treament center stated he did not complete.Now the treatment center has come back after his sentencing and amended their statement saying he did in fact complete the program. He didn't even know this. I had to writ him and tell him because I'd found out by always checking on things and making a lot of calls. His Case Manager says he should be in a FCI and after I contacted the North Central Region (BOP), they also said that he should be in an FCI and that his Case Manager, Team Manager, Counselor, etc. can coordinate his transfer to an FCI and that I should contact them as well as my fiancee should. I spoke with his Case Manager and told him what the NCR said to me and he agreed that he could coordinate his transfer to an FCI. I'm calling him at the prison in a few minutes to see what is going on.If the BOP is concerned about the inmates then why are they sending the majority of them so far away from their loved-ones? Read the "BOP Program Statement" (Purpose and Scope), Visiting Regulations. It States the following:
The Bureu of Prisons encourages visiting by family, friends, and community groups to maintain the morale of the inmate and to develop closer relationships between the inmate and family members or others in the community. The Warden shall develop procedures consistent with this rule to permit inmate visiting. The Warden may restrict inmate visiting when necessary to ensure the security and good order of the institution.

US Department of Justice OPI:CPD
Federal Bureau of Prisons Number:5267.06
**Corrected Copy** Date:5/17/99
Program Statement Subject: Visiting Regulations
Rules Effective:6/11/99
(Purpose And Scope) 540.40

SPG , My fiancee is also at Leavenworth USP. He is orginally from New York. But he caught his case in Virginia. I live in the Kc, area so i met him through a pen pal site. Tommorow is our one year anniversary. He's been there since January 2001 and has a little over three years left . I'm sorry you are so far away. I have to deal with him transfering out to take the drug program so he can get hopefully a year taken off his time. So if that doesn't happen then it will be like 4 more years.

Take care.
Jennifer

Thumbs up my baby is sorta close to me

my boyfriend is in kountze, tx which is actually close to my home town where i visit often. he says that the visits there are only for about 30 min. so we haven't had any as of yet. but the last time he was in prison it was FCI Beaumont and i visited him at least once a month and we didn't have any problems there. the facility was nice and clean also. His first time ever in the system, they sent him all the way to Coleman, FL for three whole years. We are tring to get him transfered to Segoville, since I have moved back to dallas.

My best friend, Al, is at USP Atlanta. I'm all the way in New York. Al has been shuffled around the U.S. a lot too. First Lewisberg, PA, then Allenwood, PA, then Beaumont, TX and now Atlanta, GA. I've been to visit more prisons than I care to admit. By far, Beaumont was the worst as far as crime within the walls.

This is to ngp the bop doesnt care about inmates or there familys they have one main objective that is to make life hard for the inmate and life even harder for the family.Did you see the new drug machines they have in the prisions when you visit,its nuts my wife came to see me and she was shoot down from coming in because the michen detected something on her hands,she never even say a drug let alon touched one,that machien was desined to discourage wives and family from visiting there loved ones .Thats the bop they try to destroy your family any way they can belive it.

my finance is in terre haute and i am in texas. terre haute is just about the worst facility he has been in during the last 16 years. recently he has been in jonesville va, which was a pretty good prison as far as prisons go, and he spent time in edgefield sc before that.

My husband is at FCI Terminal Island in California. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. He's only about 30 miles from me so it's a short drive and I visit him every week for about 8 hours at a time. The window view is the ocean and we've actually seen some dolphins & seals as we look out while chit chatting. I couldn't have asked for a better situation under the circumstances. Izzy

My husband is at FPC Nellis, in North Las Vegas NV. It's an okay place, as far as prisons go. It's tucked way back on Nellis Airforce Base.

Biggest drawback: I'm in Wisconsin and he's there!

My wife just started a 10 month sentence at the new federal camp in Victorville, CA. I believe it has been opened for only 2 years. It is not even listed on the BOP web site. Seems to be very clean and the visiting area is not to bad. The only draw back is since it is the desert, there is no grass, just a lot of dirt and rocks. It is only 85 miles from home so visits are not a problem which helps both myself and my 5 1/2 year old daughter.

My hubby was in Estill, SC but is now temporarily in Orangeburg, SC (he had to go to trial again for something he did while in Estill) Estill is a camp and a med security-but I believe he has to be transferred out now due to his mis-behavior. It was a decent place if you ask me but then, I wasn't "inside"

My daughter is at SeaTac Federal Detention Center (Seattle, WA). I just made the 1500 mile round trip to take her son (3) to visit - this is only our 3rd visit there since she was incarcerated on Dec. 11th, 2002. It is a maximum security facility, no outdoor privileges, but my daughter got to work outside a few days recently doing landscaping! She also taught an aerobics class for a few weeks as she is a physical therapist. She's making the best of a very bad situation and we try to cope as well. Hello and stay strong to the rest of you here! Mavis
