Default Intro--bluebubblegum

Hi, my name is Heather, and I live in Texas. My son is in prison in Arkansas, in the Tucker Unit. Does anyone else have loved ones in there, or know what the conditions are like? My son tells me it is a very old prison, probably the oldest in the state. He has the usual complaints you'd expect (food, boredom) but so far he seems to be getting along okay and says that everybody is treating him decent- both the other inmates and the guards.
I worried a lot about that because he is young (22), but he says nobody messes with him, at least not so far. I think he complained a lot worse when he was at BCT at Ft Knox (he was in the Army briefly). So hopefully his two year sentence will fly by and he will come out of it undamaged.
Well, I just wanted to check in. Nice to meet y'all.

My son was there. It was not an easy road for him at all. My advice is for your son to stay to his self as much as possible. If he only has to do two years and has no problems he shouldn't be there long at all before he comes up for parole. I think if they have no problems they serve about 1/6th of the sentence. Good Luck to you and your son.
