I would definetly say early release. The reason I say that is because with the family visits the counselor makes the decision whether you get the family visit or you don't. If they like the inmate you get it if they dont you dont. there is always a grey area that they can deny you on. I know this from experience. We got family visits at one prison, and then at another we did not.........did you know that they can deny you because of an arrest charge, even if it did not go to court, because it was a bogus charge.

I would have to say sentence reduction, although after 11 years a conjugal visit would be great, but, then we'd have to get married in prison. And Ohio doesn't even have those kind of visits. So the sentence reduction would be the way for us. With 5 years to go time off for taking classes, good behavior, etc. would be wonderful. And I get to visit once a week for six hours except the months we have five weeks. So I would like him to come home sooner :-)

While being able to make love to my wife would be EXCELLENT! having her home so we can do it every night would be much better. All joking aside, I'd rather have her out sooner and back home than to have contact/conjugal visits.

Right now, only 6 states allow conjugal visits. Fed-X, am I right? And right now, pretty a few states allow good time up to 50% off the original sentence depending on the severity of the various charges. Since we already have those in some states, why are we complaining about wanting more laws on these issues? I just don't understand? If we want a law changed, then we have to pick ONE that's MORE important to us then we can take action on writing up a bill proposal and send it to the state legistature then they'll take consideration. So now, I already rolled up my sleeves and ready to brainstorm on an legal outline so I can write a proposal for ONE of these. So... tell me, people, which's more important to yoU???????????
california doesn't give either!!! 10,000 are past release dates so no 50% here.

Default Sentence reduction

If my baby gets his sentence reduced, then that will mean that we will have more time to be with each other right in our own home.

Default efv vs sentence reduction

:twocents: Of course we all want sentence reduction but it all matters on how much that redcution is for if your love is in for 25 to life...so I would vote for efv, unless I was given a high percentage that the possibilites for my man to get 50% of his time, that would mean he would be home very soon...and I don't want to get my hopes high... it hurts..well you all know...That's my two cents... thanks again

:confused:, just a little lost...

I'd say sentence reduction as well. Especially for non-violent offenders. We can get our loved ones home and free up the crowded prison systems.

facing what we are facing and doing what we did...at this moment i would have opted for a sentence reduction because he would have been home in half the time he was has served so far, which means he would have been home already

yeah...i'm going with sentence reduction here...for all cases, if i had to choose. half time makes a HUGE difference even though it doesn't seem like it.

lifers could go from life to half of that. death row inmates could get reduced from death to say life w/parole eligibility.

i'd rather have him home out here with me than me home in there with him

i don't have to think too much about this because i'm not allowed visits so i'm voting for the sentence reduction. however...even if i did have visits i'd still be going for the sentence reduction because i'm ready for him to come home!
