Default should u try???

Tailgate,
I feel your pain and confusion. Unfortunately, only you can answer that question...should you try to revive your relationship or not? Maybe you could just start out as friends....do u really have to just jump head first, into a fully commited relationship? My son is in the feds and just broke up with his finace because the pressure was just too much for him. He is much happier with out the added worries. I also had a husband in prison a few years ago and we didn't make it. Also, I had a a good friend go to prison (4th time) a couple years ago.....we started writing 'as friends' and found out that as friends we were the best of the best!! Now, he is out and lives with me (as friends) and we are doing great...and he is doing super.....he's getting off parole 2 yrs. early because he has done so well!! My point is....the stress on you and them is going to be terrific. You really have to be positive of what you're doing to make it work in these conditions. Some people can do it and some can't. If you can...you will develop a trust-bond that is super tight, but if you can't deal with the stress (or he can't), there are alternatives. Friends are a great thing. We all need and treasure them..and who knows what can bloom from that. Whatever your decision.........trust your guts girl!!

Good luck and God Bless!
Patty .... Let me know what you decide and how it is working for you. K?

Hi all,

My son arrived at USP Atlanta, GA yesterday and is waiting to be transferred to Forrest City, AR. He doesn't know if he will be in Atlanta one day or one month. All depends on when the feds get around to putting him on a air lift.

Does anyone know anything about the facilities at Atlanta or Forrest City?

My son is 20 years old and I'm scared to death for him.

Thank you Patty.

This has been the hardest thing I've ever gone through. I have three grown kids and Derek is my youngest.

He has never been in jail before and I can't believe he is in prison for smoking pot in a federal park! Actually, he is in jail for violating his 12 month probation sentence for smoking pot in a federal park. :argh

This has been a nightmare. We had an attorney, but the prosecutor was hell bent on putting Derek behind bars (must have been the long hair in a pony tail).

The prosecutor even came over to Derek and his attorney (when we were at his sentencing) and whispered 'you are going to prison punk'. Derek's attorney said 'don't say that'.

I don't know who I'm madder at; the federal system, Derek, his attorney, prosecutor or the judge who sentenced him to 6 months.:fb:

My brother is also waiting at USP Atlanta for transport to Butner FMC. He has been there for 9 days. He was suppose to arrive and leave the next day. He says they are over crowded and there are 4 to 5 in a cell and that he's having to sleep on the concrete floor because they are out of mattresses. He says the food is terrible, and that the only time he gets out of the cell is to get is food tray. Not a pleasant place to be by any means, but hopefully he and your son will soon be out of there. 160 days might seem like a life time to him and you, but it will be over before you know it, just hang in there. My brother was sentenced to 15 years, and i just take it one day at a time, it's all we can do. God bless you and your son.

My son Mariano (29) has been transferred from FCC Coleman Low, FL, to FCI McRae, GA, after 12 days of diesel therapy visiting FCI Tallahassee and USP Atlanta. I wander why they don't allow us parents to pay for a decent bus ride, it would not be too expensive once in some years and would save them the nightmare of waiting for transports, housed in institutions which don't have the minimal facilities to receive them.

McRae is a private institution (Corrections Corp.of America)where all deportables are concentrated for the last months of their time. Seems to be good. If anyone has some information, please post it here.

Un abrazo,
Andrés

My fiance is in Petersburg VA hold area waiting to be sent to Butner NC. He has been sent all over the place willy nilly and could sit there for up to 45 days and no phone allowed. This in transit situation sucks big time, he can't even call his lawyer. I've been sending letters but can't even be sure he is getting them. And the money that I posted for him a month ago is still lost in space, I sent more this week. I'm frustrated big time.

Hi everyone, My name is Rachel and my husband is in Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn for past 3.5 months and i miss him alot. I got arrested with him but i'm home now with curfue. We have 3 kids and we been together for 13 years and never been away from each other. I'm allowed to visit him every Monday for 1 hour but it's so not enough for us. I know its closer than some of you. I'm trying to get him out on bail and monday he was suppose to have meeting with prosecutor to discuss his bail and after all marshalls forgot to bring him to the court house and now it's only next week. I hate this system. Our sentensing is in January. I'm scared! My youngest is only 7 months.

I had a wide eyed friend of many years. We picked each others children up from school. She was there for me when my mom & grand mom died. We always said "It's you & me til the wheels fall off."
Time plays it's subtle games & I guess the wheels fell off for awhile. I just found out that she's in FMC Carswell.

Hi everyone!
Great news! My brother has finally arrived at FMC Butner! We are so happy he's out of Atlanta, and can now hopefully get the medical care he needs.

Thank goodness for that! Being in transit is never easy, for them or family on the outside!

My husband is in USP Terre Haute, Indiana. 670 miles from home. He was in Lewisburg, PA then Allenwood, PA. About 3 years ago they moved him to Indiana. They say it was for his own safety. I'm not sure I believe that.


I'm in Lancaster County, PA.
