My husband just got sent to Varner unit. he is hopefully going to get transfered to Calico Rock which is closer to us so We can see him more often. He doesn't come up for parole till 2007. Any advice on how to deal with this temparary seperation would be wonderful. His name is Tim May.
Thanks for all prayers and best wishes

My Jackie is in the Tucker unit...not Tucker Max--but he's been there before too.

sgp--I believe the only federal prison in Arkansas is the one at Forrest City, but I'm not totally sure.

Default Hi Bunny

Bunny
my husband has been in Varner for 2 months now. Visitation is pretty easy going. But he has lots of problems with fights people will not leave him alone. Also never gets his mail I know I send.
Any thing specific I can ask him just give me a holler.
Do you know what barrack? Mine is in 9.

My husband is also there. He's only been there for a couple of weeks, is that a good facility?

I am new! My fiancee is in Diagnostics right now. He is suppose to be headed out to Cummins. We are having a really hard time dealing with this. He is a brittle diabetic and so far it has been a nightmare. If anyone has any info about diagnostics and visitation please let me know. Or info on how to deal with all of this!

My husband is either going to be sent to pine bluff or oceola prison for manufacturing meth while on probation for the same thing. Im done with him for a husband, filed for a divorce but i still want to try to be his "friend" for support. We have 2 boys, ages 19 and 16. We have been married for almost 20 yrs. How do I cope? I have been left with all the bills, and responsibilities. I feel like im going to "loose it" sometimes. I work as an LPN at a local mental and acute drug facility and see what happens to families every day. It kills me to see that this is happening to me. Any suggestions??????

Yes, My husband has had "several" labs in the last few years. I have been married to him for almost 20 yrs. He is the best husband you could ever have except for his addiction. He has lied and every thing you could imagine for the last couple of years. we have 2 boys ages 19 and 16. It's hard to believe he has done this to us again. Me and our oldest son even had him busted last year just to try to help him and save his life. This time, he was working at a good job, attending N/A meetings and then, he lied about getting fired, he was fired about 2 weeks before I found out. He lied to me about everything, acted like he was going to work and then, he got busted just down from our house. It was terrible. My youngest son was comming home from riding around up town with a friend and the cops would not let them through until the car , my car, was searched and they were both patted down. He, my youngest son, was humiliated. Well, needlest to say, he (my husband) was on probation at the time and now he is in jail with a $100,000 bond. Even his dad cant bail him out , like last time. In the past, we found components of meth labs in the attice, shed, under the house and under the front porch. The smarter we got, the smarter he got. I will go through my divorce this time, stronger than ever. If any one needs to ever talk, just pm me or email me. I would love to share stories, this is only a "touch" of what me and the boys have been through.......

Hayes.. I'm so sorry. It sucks that he did this to you and your family. This WILL make you stronger, but it's not fun. We're here for you!!

hayes2001wr - I totally understand where you are coming from. My fiancee is in Cummins for Meth also. I have been with him off and on for 5 years. I have seen the ups and the downs. He finally got clean for the last year and a half before they finally sent him to prison. They waited 2 years before they finally charged him. He is a brittle diabetic and it has been a nightmare. I love him and am standing by him but, I don't believe I would be strong enough if he did this to me again. You hang in there and hopefully get comfort in knowing that you aren't alone. Terry has a 18 yr. old, a 16 yr. old and a 7 yr. old. "meth" is a tough battle to fight. If you need to talk at anytime feel free to PM me anytime. I have gotten lots of support from this site, and I am always here if someone needs me. I'll be praying for you.

I have a friend (my cousins ex-husband) at Quanita River unit. Does anyone on here have someone there also?I would like someone to pass on the word that I said "HI" to him. We used to write letters back and forth all the time but lost track of each other for awhile. I subscribed him a copy of the con-tact newspaper but I havent told him yet. He probably needs pen pals too. Anyways can someone pass the word for me. thanks in advance. atyler

My husband is at the Diagonistic (sp?) Unit in Pine Bluff. We have been married only a 11 months but we have been together for 4 years. We met while he was in prison. We were fortunate enough to be able to get married while he was on a 309. The clemency board just got his app for clemency Tuesday. We have a letter of support from the victim, the sherrif and the pros. attorney!
I am new to this board so if you have any questions please ask.
I guess I need to give a little info about my husband. He was sentenced to 15 years for agg rob. He has been in for 7 years. He was 17 when he commited his crime and in the USMC. He had no priors. He had a buddy with him that only got 30 months. My husband got 15 YEARS!!!
Anyway, thanks for letting me join your board!
