carol1957 - I don't know anything about the FCI (my guy is at the camp), but someone should be here soon to answer your questions!

JenaG - I think that's awesome that you got to see him during the layover! That had to mean a lot to him, too!

Hi Carol and Welcome to PTO and the federal forum. I wish you luck on your move to KY, and I'm going to move your thread to a federal sub-forum so you may get more answers in response to your question about USP Lee.

Again, Welcome to PTO and the Federal forum. Please, feel free to ask any questions you may have!

My son has been emailing from the prison. It has sure been nice hearing from him in almost real time! What makes it the nicest though is being able to initiate the conversation instead of having to wait on the mail or for him to call. Sunflower please thank your fiance for me. I am so glad he is showing my son the ropes.

JenaG - Isn't that the best? I was so frustrated at first, having to wait for my fiance to call me. When we got the emails set up, it was so exciting! I thanked my guy for you and he said to tell you 'thank you' for the help you gave me when I was trying to figure out the whole good time and HWH stuff. Hope you get to visit your son soon!

chrissee138 - Yay...have fun!!! I can't wait to get on the road tomorrow afternoon to see mine...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the boss lets me cut out early!

RRC Placement
Accountability. Pre-release inmates participating in release programming at an RRC remain in federal custody while serving a sentence imposed by the U.S. District Court or DC Superior Court. Offenders under the supervision of U.S. Probation or the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) are housed as a condition of their supervision. Accordingly, RRC staff monitors an inmate's location and movement 24 hours/day. The contractor authorizes an inmate to leave the RRC through sign-out procedures for approved activities, such as seeking employment, working, counseling, visiting, or recreation. Staff continues to monitor inmates by visiting the approved locations (home or work) and/or making random phone contacts at different times during the day. Staff also administers random drug and alcohol tests for those inmates returning to the RRC from an approved activity and conduct random and scheduled in-house counts throughout the day.
Employment. Ordinarily, offenders are expected to be employed 40 hours/week within 15 calendar days after their arrival at the RRC. Staff is available at the RRC to assist inmates in obtaining employment through a network of local employers, employment job fairs, and training classes in resume writing, interview techniques, etc.
Housing. During their stay, offenders are required to pay a subsistence fee to help defray the cost of their confinement; this charge is 25 percent of their gross income, not to exceed the per diem rate for that contract. The contractor assists inmates in locating suitable housing (if necessary), to which they can release from the RRC. In cases where an inmate will be released with supervision, the contractor verifies the proposed address and forwards its comments to the U.S. Probation Office.
Substance Abuse Treatment/Counseling. RRCs offer drug testing and counseling for alcohol and drug-related problems. Contractors provide treatment and/or counseling based upon the offender's needs and substance abuse history. Counseling may be performed at the RRC with qualified staff, and/or treatment may be provided through a contract between the BOP's TDAT program and certified treatment providers.
Medical/Mental Health Treatment. Ordinarily, inmates are encouraged to assume responsibility for medical costs while residing in an RRC. Contractors usually maintain a network of social service agencies to assist inmates, if the need arises during transition. In an emergency and on a case-by-case basis, the contractor is responsible for obtaining the necessary treatment required to preserve the inmate's life. The BOP provides a 30-day supply of medication to cover the first 30 days of an inmate's stay at an RRC (under limited circumstances, more may be provided).
Home Detention
Some federal inmates are placed on home detention at the end of their prison term. Home detention is a generic term used to cover all circumstances under which an inmate is required to remain at home during non-working hours of the day. They serve this portion of their sentences at home under strict schedules and curfew requirements. Electronic monitoring equipment is sometimes used to monitor compliance with the program's conditions. This program provides an opportunity for inmates to assume increasing levels of responsibility, while at the same time providing sufficient restrictions to promote community safety and convey the sanctioning value of the sentence. Statutory provisions limit the length of home detention to the last six months or 10 percent of the sentence, whichever is less. Ordinarily, an inmate is placed in an RRC prior to placement on home detention.
I realize this is a long post but I am under the impression that if a inmate is sent home 6 months prior to his sentence being over, that they serve 6 months before that in a halfway house. Any one else? This is off the BOP web site.

If the person you are referring to is an inmate, they won't be on here. I wish they could.. but they aren't. Where is he at? They should be able to set up an email account through the prison. Your best bet, if you need to get word to him is to send him a letter, snail mail. Make sure you out his inmate number on it, so that it will get there quicker. If there is anything else I can do to help, please let me know.

I didn't read the whole post, but from what I understand, and I could be way off here.. that my fiance will get out 6 months before his sentence is up, he will spend at least 3 months of that in the HWH, and 3 months home confienment. That is about all I know on the subject.. They can, however get 12 months early release, but due to overcrowding in the HWHs, most facilities are only granting 6 months. I wish they would do the 12, but it is a long shot, and don't count on it...

I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back with you on this... I have been dealing with a lot with my sweetie lately, and missing a LOT of posts!

From what Scott tells me, this is the most laid back place he has been. I don't hear him complain too much about the COs, and the visits are pretty laid back. They do have some education programs, but I am not sure what all they have. They do not, however, have the RDAP program (drug program), but they do have UNICOR.

I hope he gets a transfer there.. like I said, it is pretty good, as far as prisons go...

Just spent 3 days with my baby! It was soooo great to actually get to spend my birthday with him for the FIRST time since we have been together!

We had a great visit, and I had a great friend to spend my evenings with! Really made my birthday great!

He has been having some health issues, and I have been so worried about him... I am sorry I haven't gotten to all of your questions... but if anyone else knows an answer feel free to speak up!

Hope you all had a good weekend!

I know, it's so good to see them, isn't it? I appreciate every little thing that we have at this point...the emails, letters, phone calls...it all really helps. Is there a chance that they'll move him over there once the hold is straightened out - or is it definitely impossible at this point?

I don't know what kind of hold they have on him. But when my son was in Texas, our county put a hold on him . Where he was at he was told #1 once he was assigned a place he could not transfer until he had completed 18 months. (But that was to another federal prison) so I don't know if that effects him. Then in order for him to transfer to KY he could not have any holds against him. He filed for a fast and speedy trial against the county,....They had to prosecute him within 180 days. Might be possible in his case. Needless to say they pretty well dropped it, and he was transferred within a few weeks. You got to remember though he had already done over 18 months. He was also ready to file papers that would demand that they allowed him to serve any sentence he received in the state courts along with his federal time.. They also had a hold on in another county on a misdemeanor charge that the sheriffs department had had since he was 17! They pretty much ignored that one...I believe it was past the statue of limitations. Good Luck!!!!

Depending on the crime I have also noticed that the more you are going to cost the county the less likely they are to prosecute. If you are indigent...they have to provide a attorney, and in KY you can file in the courts for free. also if you are indigent you don't have to pay court costs even if found guilty...but you must fill out a form declaring yourself indigent. If you are sick with some type of illness, if you have less then a few years to serve they will usually make a deal, or drop charges because the counties can not afford the cost of the inmates care. But document, document. document!

He has already been sentenced, and time will be served on this case in December of this year. The hold they have is for a one day evaluation after his federal sentenced is served. The way they do it is they take away all of their HWH time, and they have to serve their entire sentence in the feds. Then, the day they FINALLY release, the county holding them comes to pick them up, cuffs them, and takes them to another facility for a one day evaluation. THIS IS BS!!!! His time will be served a year and a half before he would release from the feds so they are going to "arrest" him with no charges. Almost the same as kidnapping...

We aren't sure what is going to happen at this point. We have a lawyer on it, but he isn't making much progress... and he will probably not get to transfer to the camp...

Exclamation Please help! Death in our family.

Hello everyone. I'm new here and hope someone has any info on the camp reguarding escorts or furloughs to funerals. My father-in-law is at the camp and his dad passed away on Sunday. We notifed them and he requested to attend the funeral, but called last night said he was denied. Does anyone know if they ever let out for deaths? My heart is breaking for him. His dad was 95. The funeral is on Friday over 300 miles from Manchester.

First, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. That has to be hard. My fiance lost his grandfather this year too. He is at the FCI so there are no ferloughs there.

From what I understand, I don't think they make special exceptions for anything, and ferloughs for any reason are pretty hard to get. I really don't know much more than that. Your best bet would be to call and talk to the AW yourself. Sorry I couldn't help any more than that.

Thank you for responding. I'm guessing you mean assistant warden? I'm not real familiar. I spoke with my neighbor, a KY state representative and he is going to call in the morning. "fingers cossed"
