i heard something about women then getting pregnant, not having their husbands here to help raise the children, and then putting more families on welfare. that may or not be true. i would be more than happy to show them proof that my tubes are tied!!! LOL

could be that in their minds they are there to be punished and they shouldn't get to enjoy sex??? i don't know. i've given up trying to figure out what the heck they are thinking anymore.

I vote for sentence reduction, although I know it wouldn't pertain to my hubby since his sentence was a flat seven. But I want him home sooner if possible, even though I feel like a virgin again, and probably am spouting cobwebs, lol.

I say let them come home early. I know my son wants to be with his wife, but he wants out of there now! I'm new at this, so can someone help me find out how he can get out earlier?
thanks, concerned mom.

SENTENCE REDUCTION - I would rather have my hubby home with me sooner than spend more weekend in a prison visitation room...

sentence reduction, if they passed it now, with the length of time he has already served, he would be on the next bus out of there!

i would have to say "good time"... of course we already know the State of Texas doesn't allow conjugal.... i would push to have "good time" b/c i agree with the others.... for the ones that have a long stretch of time on their hands... with that good time counted to their sentence... they can be home alot faster....

[quote=ChandaMija]Sentence Reduction (Good Time) or Extended Family visits?

I would vote for the extended family visits. Regardless of the amount of time they have it would be more valuable to us both if we were able to spend alone time to keep them connected to the family life, if even for a weekend every now & then. I am not aware of an option for extended family visits in Ohio.

I would say time reduction, because that way our loved ones could come home sooner and we could spend each and everyday with them!

i would definitely have to pick sentence reduction because to me, family visits would be more like a tease! lol! seriously though, i'd rather him come home to me for good than be able to see him for a longer, better visit because that would just remind me what i'm missing. plus i want him back in MY bed asap!

My Sweetheart has always had me there to communicate all these years and it's so hard on everyone. As he stated to me over and over again nothing is more important than your freedom. Yes the visits would be nice for many but you still have to leave them behind where they were to begin with when the weekend is over. That can also be tormenting to the soul. If they can't get canned goods anymore how do you figure they are going to more quality family visits?

I agree with samscrazywoman.... A lifer will tell you nothing is more important than your freedom. And in California we dont get conjugal visits if you are a lifer anyway. They took them away around 1996 or so. How much more do you take from a man before his life no longer means what it once did? They never see their families, kids, wives and then they go before the board and they dont want to turn them loose either. For a lifer they both should be an option. good time for someone with no dicsiplinary actions and conjugal visits to keep the family and home fires burning. I am not married to my lifer but i know he would say the same thing. California holds men as if they are political prisoners. So why not give them a few perks and see if the revidism rate doesnt decline and the amount of frustration these men see every day on the inside might decline as well.

Depends on length of sentence.

I would say sentence reduction, but if that is just through good time, then I have a hard time agreeing. The prison is so arbitrary about everything, they can offer it, and you would still never benefit from it if they dont want you to.
Now if all the crap they pull goes away to so you know you get the good time, then yes, bring him home sooner, otherwise we need those personal private moments to keep us going.
