Hi everybody...I've been on prisontalk a few months now but havent been on the federal forums too often. My fiance is finally supposed to be sentenced on Feb 25th after being all around the county jails and a federal jail in ohio. I am looking for any info anyone may have on what happens next. This has been going on since May 06, Im anxious to find out when he will be coming home but scared at the same time. I can't wait til we can finally have a contact visit, it is ridiculous to be so close to the one you love yet you cant even reach out and hold their hand or even smell their scent through that stupid glass.

Welcome. What happens next will depend on his sentence. If he's sentenced to serve more time in federal prison, then he will sit in the county jail, waiting to be designated to a particular federal prison and to be picked up by the U.S. Marshals to be transported there. That can take weeks or months, depending.
If he only has a federal sentence, his designation will be made through the US Marshals and most likely He will stay in the facility he is being held awaiting sentencing. Oklahoma is the transfer point if he is moved far away. His attorney can request a judicial recommendation to specific facility near his family at sentencing, but this is not always followed.
as Zelda50 said, most likely it will take several months at a minimum before he reaches his designation and contact could be sporadic.
Well thanks everyone for the information you have shared...my fiance finally got sentenced and his lawyer did requested Morgantown so I'm sure hoping that's where he ends up...they moved him back to North East Ohio Correctional Center for now...I hope it doesn't take too long for him to get to Morgantown, I am ready for a visit where we can actually spend more than 30 minutes behind glass.
