Hello.. my name is Kristine and I have a fiance who will be transferred to Dodge more than likely in October. Currently he is sitting in the Outagamie County Jail. Also, does anyone know if there is a support system around the Appleton area for familes whose loved ones are within the system? I just moved here from the dells to be with my fiance and a month ago he was sent back to jail on a parole violation. Looks like he will be serving 3-4 yrs and I have absolutely NO FRIENDS here in this big city. The more I sit home by myself, the crazier I feeling. If there was some sort of support group for me, it would make the wait go by much faster and I would become much more sane. Thanks!

My name is Stephen and I am a former correctional officer, p&p agent and now a Police Chief in Wisconsin. I do believe in consiquences for law violations, but am in firm belief that Wisconsin needs to revamp it's policies and SOP in the correctional system, hence former correctional officer and p&p agent.

Hello everyone,
My name is Kristine, and I live north of Madison. I have a friend in a women's prison in Florida. I'm on PTO becuase I have never known anyone in prison, and I thought I'd try to get an idea of how she's living and what she's going through. Also, we are adopting her baby, so because of that, we sort of have a connection of more than just 'friends'. I also read on the Florida regional boards as well.
God bless,
Kristine *Ü*

Whoa...your story sounds like mine. I, too, have had been the subject of many civilian "Violations" while visiting my guy. It is a long story but I thought we could talk about the wrongdoings of the DOC. [email address removed per PTO policy]

Hi! My name is Beth and my hubby was revoked in August, 2007. He will be a 'guest of the state' until January, 2008. He has been in and out a few times, mostly due to bi polar issues. Anyone else having these issues? I found an advocacy group for inmates. The WI Coalition for Advocacy. 1 800 928-8778. Hope it will be of help to some of you. Keep th Faith!!

HI I'm new to the WI section of PTO. I'm usually in the CA threads because my fiance is in california serving about 6 1/2 more months of a 1 yr stint. I moved here soon after he got sentenced and we are hoping that he'll be able to parole to here. I'm wondering if anyone has info on paroling in Outagamie County. i live near Appleton and want to contact the local parole office and get some info from them but i don't want to seem like an idiot. I'm very at ease with California policy but have no knowledge of Wisconsin's. So like I said any info would be appritiated. If anyone has any knowledge on the Interstate Compact Agreement I'd like that too. I know that i'm just gonna have to suck it up and call but that scares me Thanks

Hi, I'm new to this website too. My fiancee is in Kettle Moraine and he's transferred twice so far and been in prison for a year now. He'll be in prison (hoping he can transfer closer to home soon) for 2 more years plus the INS prison will be an additional wait. We have a 3 yr old girl and have been together for almost 5 years. Last year (the year he went to prison) was very, very difficult for me. I literally didn't want to go anywhere (besides work and school) and just wanted to stay home. I didn't even want to talk to my family because they wouldn't understand me. So, I was really depressed but because of my faith in God, I knew that I had to be strong (so was my fiancee) for our family and keep pressing on. After about 10 months of not going anywhere, I finally decided to hang out with my friends. It felt very good to not think too much but I couldn't help it at times. I met several guys (only casually) and made some stupid mistakes (which I would never tell my fiancee while he's in prison for fear he'll seriously go whacko, though I wouldn't blame him). Now, I finally made the decision to be with him because we're a family and I know that I will never meet anyone like him. We have established a loving foundation and I would never want to rebuild that with anyone. I am soooo remorseful for cheating on him (only one person knows this) but I was also wavering in our love at the time. He has been in and out of jail several times during our relationship and I still CANNOT believe that I STILL stayed with him...Ugh! Since the birth of our daughter though, he changed his criminal ways and became more responsible (I still think he needs to grow up more) so things were going good until his past caught up with him. That's the reason why he's in there. I needed to get all these words off my chest and am very happy to do it here where I know I'm not alone. I have read many encouraging stories here and they all inspired me to never give up! Thanks.

Hi All, I am in CA but my concerns are in the WI prison system. I came looking for any info on WI prisons since I found my exBF from 40 years ago is in for 40+ years. His son and brother are also in, the son is in the Supermax which sounds horrendous.


I haven't contacted any of them yet, don't know if it's a good idea or not. I would welcome any advice , pro's, con's of starting a quasi-relationship again.

Hi all! I am new to this site and I have a friend who is in Waupun Correctional Institute. He has been in for four years and will potentially be out at the end of this year with the Earned Release Program. I found this site looking for information about mail and I'm so glad I found it!

Default Hello Packer Fans!

Hi. I'm usually in the TX forum but decided to stop by and say hello to all of you. We lived in WI from '94 to '96 and LOVED it. My son started to get in trouble when we came to TX and, well, he got home from prison on March 5. He stayed for 15 months as a guest of The Lone Star state. It is his wish to someday, after his parole is over, to return to WI to work and live.

Y'all take care.

Diane, Dusty's Mom

It's so quiet here; stop by the TX forum sometime. We'd be happy to have you.

My name is Patti and my fiancee is currently in Rock County waiting to go to Dodge then who knows where. He just learned that he has to serve 21 months! He has been in the county for three months so far. I live in Southern Wisconsin and am a nurse. I miss him so much and look forward to every visit, letter and phone call. I do not know what is in store for us visit wise he says that once he is moved to Dodge that it is worse for awhile less phone calls and visits (maybe none) until he is moved. It is a comfort to be able to read how other people are dealing with this and find answers to all the questions. We are going to try and get married before he is moved we have three weeks to try and get it done. Pray that it happens for us.

Default Sort of new to this

Hi everyone, I'm sort of new to this prison thing. My boyfriend is In Dodge @ this time. He is waiting to go to either Stanley or New Lisbon. We aren't sure how long he will be gone. He is sitting out a probation revocation, and awaiting sentencing on a new charge. We have been friends for almost 20 years, poppping in and out of each others lives, we finally made the decision to see if we could be together. I am wondering does anyone know where a nice, inexpensive motel/hotel is in either New Lisbon or Stanley. Thanks
