Exclamation NEED HELP!! *Correspondence refused?!?*

Last week I got a letter back that I wrote my b/f at MCC. Also attached with a letter from the postal assisant. It said "Offenders serving sentences at different facilites cannot correspond with each other without prior written approval from both Wardens per OP 803.1."

I'm not in jail or any kind of facility.... I'M HOME!
Could the postal assisant made a mistake?!?!?

I would call and ask the mail room why they sent you that letter. Tell them that you sent your letter from home and you have no idea why you received theirs and see what they say.
Maybe the letter was meant for someone else and ended up eith your by accident, could happen.

Then it's obfious that someone in Mail Room made a mistake. Resend the letter and then make a photo copy of that envelope and send with a letter to Mail Room showing them their mistake!!

Are you, by chance, on probation?
Technically, that would mean you are still in custody and some overzealous clerk might have opted to stick to the exact letter of the policy?

I had that happen also but it was a letter that someone had written to me and had no mention of him so it could be whan they see letters from others that they don't really read them as the letter I enclosed was clearly addressed and a letter to me. It was just something I wanted him to read also.

Ultraviolet -- if you sent two letters in the envelope, the person opening the mail could see they were from two different people. Right? That doesn't mean he read them word for word - but did follow the rule to the letter by refusing to give your guy the letter. Is against the rules to do that so be careful. Perhaps if you'd used two separate envelopes for the two letters, he had received both of them.

Mimi Babi: Xerox copy your driver's license and an electric bill or phone bill, address it to the mailroom sargeant along with a copy of the refused letter and a copy of the letter they sent you about being in prison, and a polite note that says, "See, I'm not an inmate, here is my ID and proof of my current address!"

Ultraviolet: Please do NOT send letters from other inmates, ever. It's not legal. You can get busted on a conspiracy charge. Guess how I know this? I got in trouble! They can suspend your mail privs. What you CAN do is send a message within the body of your letter: "Tom sends his regards, George is doing just fine", but do NOT send their letters!
