Hi everyone! I just joined PTO today. I'm an accountant in Milwaukee. My guy is Fox Lake and I'm new to all this prison stuff. He has 2 more years and this is so hard to deal with. I'm so excited to have a resource like this to turn to!

Hello. I wish I had known about this board years ago. My husband is in New Lisbon, which you may know is under total lockdown right now. We originally met and were married in Tennessee, where he spent four years. He came back to Wisconsin three years ago, to Fox Lake. At the end of June, he was transfered to New Lisbon. I travel to see him most Fridays and stay over night to visit again on Saturday. Winters are the worst, because road conditions bother him. I had a very scary accident 3 1/2 years ago and since then he isn't happy when the weather is bad. Neither am I, but I'd rather be with him than waiting in Milwaukee. He's been in 17 years, with another 3 to go, if they won't let him go on parole. He's up for it in February, and I could use advice on what might work with them.

Welcome to PTO, Sarah, and congratulations on your anniversary tomorrow! Here you can find people who understand and can offer support.
I am not new to PTO but I am new to Wisconsin, having sent someone in Waupun a birthdaycard in January, and having received a nice letter from him. My Lifer Friend is a far far distant relative of this man.

Default baby daddy in eau claire county jail

My name is Lisa. I don't know who all heard about the home invasion in Eau Claire in January, but unfortunately, my son's father was involved. He is currently facing 9 FELONY CHARGES! I live in Minnesota, and have no idea what is going on. I don't know how Wisconsin works and I am afraid that he is gone for a LONG time! We have a 19 month old son together-that he adores. He is sitting in Eau Claire county jail and the phone calls are $17 a piece. I honestly don't know what to do. I know that he will be gone for awhile, but
my heart doesnt want to let go. On the flip side, I'm not trying to hold on
to a man in prison for the next 10 years. If anyone has heard about this case-please email me Email was removed by Forum Leader do to no email address policy or also email me for support. Thank you.

Hello to everyone, my name is Marilyn. I am an illustrator for children's picture books. My son was just sentenced for 3 years in prison. I did get some good news though, our lawyer said that my son will most likely be transferred to a facility other than Waupun and this facility will be a little better.

Hi everybody, while my baby's incarcerated down in Florida, I live up here in Milwaukee, WI. He'll be there for quite a while yet, it makes me so sad. If there's anyone who lives by me and is interested in chatting or even meeting for emotional support, please pm me.

Hi everyone, I'm brand new to PTO but am looking so forward to talking with everyone. My guy is in Gordon Correctional Center and prior to that KMC. He was sentenced to 4years for his 6th DUI and escape (he didnt show up for the sentencing on the 5th charge and when they nailed him for his 6th they got him for escape) He served 2 years at KMC and went to Gordon November of 04. He was sentenced under the Truth in Sentencing laws so he recently appealed for his 25% off and was denied. We are hoping that the rumors end up being true about the laws changing making it automatic for non violent offenders to get their 25% off which would put him out in the fall. We have a long history, going back 25 years. We dated in highschool and wanted to get married but broke up because of family issues etc. I have maintained contact with his family throughout the years and in January of 04 he and I started writing and ultimately fell back in love. We were each others first loves and look at us now! Hes a terrific guy and between us we have 4 children. I have 2 girls and a boy ages 19, 10, and 8 and he has a 12 year old daughter that spends time with us. I am a full time student majoring in Social Work and have a daughter in the Marine Corps leaving for Japan next week. Wow I'm sorry, Ive just gone on and on havent I? Well heres to getting to know some new friends, We all sure can use all the support we can get.

My name is Lisa, and I now live in Tampa, Florida, but am originally from Racine and then I lived in Neenah for about 5 years, before moving down here. My baby is in Oshkosh Correctional. That is actually where I met him when I was working as a C.O. there. He has been back in for a little over 2 years on a parole revoke....stupid stuff, but he should be out this year because they owe him a sentence credit, and if granted, would have put him out already. We have an attorney working on it as we speak. His MR is January, 2006, so no matter what happens, he will be home then.

I work as an office manager at a forensic architecture firm in Clearwater. Love the job, love the weather, love the beach, miss my baby terribly.

Lisa

I'm new at this prison stuff. My brother is in Dodge so I haven't got to see him for a few months. We're hoping he'll be transferred soon; preferably to Jackson. His sentencing came as a complete surprise to my family. His PSI officer told my parents that she was recommending 6-8 months in a county jail. But the judge gave him 4 years in prison. I still haven't been able to adjust to that. Needless to say, my family has lost our faith in the justice system. He has left behind a 2 year old son and a wife with brain cancer & partial paralysis, neither of which was taken into consideration. I'll end my tirade now or I'll go on forever. I'm upset.

Hi everyone. My name is Kerry, and I live in Port Washington. My husband was just given a 13 year sentence on July 1st, 2005. He is in Brown County Jail awaiting transfer to Dodge, and we are both absolutely miserable. We had a baby girl in March of 2005, she is 4 months old now, and he only got to spend the first 7 weeks with her. We can't wait until he gets to Dodge so he can at least hold her, all visits now are still behind glass. I'm looking for information about Dodge, I've called there and found out some, but any other information that anyone feels would be helpful would be appreciated. Please send me a message.

I don't know whats happening in your situation but I just want to say my heart and prayers go out to you. My boyfriend just went to jail on 4 felony charges and has yet to be sentenced he's looking at 10-15 but the case has some holes in it. My mind says let go and my heart says no. I know inside that we're looking at a long time (I say we because I feel like I'm doing time as well!) but inside me there is still such hope that we'll get a miracle. I pray for your strength and sanity cause I know it's hard especially since he's the father of your child. The calls are outrageous and the visits aren't enough. It hurts really bad and it's so unfair to the loved one's involved. We didn't ask for this.
