Question Brit waiting for sentencing and knowledge!

Hi my name is Jane and I am a Brit,
I am trying to get as much info as possible about prisons in the UK. I am awaiting sentening here in the US, I will maybe be sent to Dublin in CALI and then shall apply for the prisoner transfer treaty, anyone know anything about that?

I am married to a US citizen but slacked on applying for my citizenship etc, therefore will be deported whatever happens. I know I have to do time here, but would prefer (maybe) to get to the UK asap, my daughter lives there, in Bristol, and I am hoping that my sentencve would be reduced in the UK, apparantly I have heard that non violent drug crimes are not sentenced as harshly as we are here, I am looking at 5 years.
Any info will be sooo very mucho appreciated.

Love and Light to all

Jane

Hi Jane,
Two addresses for you to try. The first is the UK Foreign office advice sheet on arrest etc; the second is an excellent organisation called "Prisoners Abroad" which is a UK based charity that should be able to offer some advice:

Hope this helps
