There hasn't been much activity in the Colorado for him in years unfortunately. Maybe that's a good thing? LOL it could mean that more people are being released from Colorado DOC.

Yeah, hopefully that's a good thing. I know that when I first started coming here I was a bit discouraged because the CO thread was obsolete - I was hoping if any newbies/viewers saw there's a tiny bit of action maybe they'll engage? lol.. I know prisons are populated in Colorado!! hahah

There's also a lot of people that are just Lookers that prefer not to participate but that is okay too

I have a friend in Colorado Doc. I have to say a lot more people view the forums on PTO than join and post.Sometimes over a 1000 guests are on line and less than a 100 members. So even when the forum is quiet it could still be helping people so please do post any recent information.

Sorry, when I put forum I meant “Colorado”. Honestly, I haven’t found any other online communities like this one that’s active at all. It’s a bummer!

Here. Husband was in Cheyenne Re-entry Center, but is now right across the parking lot at the halfway house owned by the same private prison group. He's technically still incarcerated, just allowed out during the days to work, etc.

Unfortunately, Colorado's parole officers suck and since he's out he has one. His parole officer has banned all communication between us "until further notice."

We ARE legally married. I have NO children. I have NO criminal background. There's no legitimate reason to do this.

Because I'm on the autism spectrum (the part that used to be called Asperger's) they believe he manipulated me into marrying him. It didn't help that I was a widow when I married him either. They're also trying to say that because of the autism I am developmentally a child who cannot truly consent to marriage. They decided all this without even bothering to call me and get to know me at all.

Already looked into legal options, there's nothing I can do since it's a condition of his parole. Unless I want to have him sent back to prison. He has no mandatory release date, so ultimately I'm sacrificing our communication for his freedom.

The only thing I can do is wait for them to change his restrictions or hope he gets a nicer P.O. He knows to try to apply for interstate when he can. My family is willing to house both of us indefinitely- they're working on building a mother in law unit for us.

Good luck on your visit. My husband was at AVCF for several years and I visited often. Let me know if you have any questions.
