It's been a long time since I have been on the computer and alot has changed. My boyfriend Adrian has been moved now a couple of times. He was in FDC Englewood, CO and was supposed to be moved to FCI Englewood, CO - which is very convienent since it was only 1/2 hour away - but Englewood was full so then he was supposed to go to FCI Florence, CO - that too was full so he has been placed in USP Florence, CO - which is over 3 hours away, I guess I really shouldn't complain but it's not too easy traveling in a truck for that amount of time with a 10 1/2 month old baby - and the prison is a maxim. sec. prison. I have heard that it is ranked number 11 in the country for the most inmate murders. Last year alone 11 inmates were killed and 1 guard. But Adrian tries to tell me that it really isn't as bad as it sounds. I'm keepin my head up for him!

Chelotorres-my best friend is in Yazoo City also. He is being transferred to the camp in Oakdale at the end of the month. It will be a much easier drive and I can't wait. He has been gone exactly a year today. I miss him....

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post. I'm so happy to have a found such an informative and supportive forum for people who are like me.

My boyfriend is currently at the Petersburg Med FCC in Peterburg, VA. Hates it!

I'm interesting in finding out how other facilities are run throughout the country, he's never done fed time and is finding it hard to adjust at this newly built facility.

I'm also interested in finding people who may have been duped into accepting pleas with false promises of a time cut for information by federal prosecutors in the Western District of VA.

God Bless Us All,

Ms. Joe

I have a long lost friend in Springfield USMCFP. I just located him again after about 8 years. Haven't written yet, but I'd like to. I'm not sure what to say, but I know he could use a friend. He never did have too many of those on the outside. Hey Malibu10 ... I pm'd you last night for info. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If anybody else has any info on Springfield or words of wisdom please feel free to chat with me about them. Thanks All!

Hi, I'm Renee and I'm new here.
My fiancee is waiting to be sentenced for trafficking "X" in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but I'm in New Orleans, LA and don't even know if I'll be able to see him for the sentencing. He asked his lawyer to reccomend FCI Oxford in WI for his prison, but I'd rather see him go to FCI Pekin, IL, but we won't know until the end of September, right now I'm just trying to learning the law better and write every congreeman and senator in the U.S. to get the Parole Bill Re-enacted.

Hi,
I just registered. I'll probably have a million questions later but now, I'm just looking around the different forums.

My husband is in the Camp in Marion, Illinois. He's been there since November. He started serving his sentence in Yankton, S. D. in March 2002. I'm glad he's closer now and I can see him more often.

Thanks everyone,

Waiting

My husband is at FPC Forrest City about 100 miles from us. There is a camp 40 miles from us, but I guess we were pretty lucky to get this close. Anyone else have any connections to this camp?
Does the BOP just randomly pick places? There seems to be no rhyme or reason.

Well I do have to say for a thread that started off slow, it has taken off. My husband is in Miami FDC, and we were told he will be there for 6-8 weeks pending a transfer to Coleman in Orlando. What is up with that? I live 25 minutes from Miami FDC and 4 hours form Orlando, do they do this on purpose or are they just slow upstairs?
After reading some of these threads I think the latter is probably right!

If anyone has any info on Miami FDC or Coleman please pm me as I have not seen him yet as no one has been cleared as of yet.........thanx to all..................stay strong!
