Welcome to Prison Talk. If he is in the special management unit, it carries many additional restrictions. To find out what is needed in order to get married at that prison, have him ask his counselor or the Chaplain. Here's the link to the Lewisburg SMU program statement.

The problem is that you cannot get a license because both of you need to be at the courthouse to sign for the marriage license. I think the prison is not opposed to allowing the marriage to take place if there were a way around the marriage license issue.

Default USP Lewisburg in the news...

So - you ladies are searching for what has happened: http://www.dailyitem.com/news/federa...401154f92.html

They might be on lockdown, because I've not received any mail since a letter dated on 10th October and stamped in Harrisburg on 16th...

Thanks for the info. My guy is in SMU, so he's always on lockdown. That place is so ridiculous and their programs do nothing to better those guys. It makes them worse if nothing else.

Hi, guys my little brother is in Lewisburg in the special management unit, has any one visited an inmate that's in the program. I haven't seen him in over a year because he doesn't want us to travel that far (we're from Florida) just to see him behind a glass but i'm going in June anyways just to lay eyes on him....any advice is appreciated!

Headed to the minimum security Lewisburg camp soon. Can I bring a ping pong paddle, a few decks of cards, and a big mouse pad?

It was posted earlier that if you are to bring your own shoes, they have to be white, as well as sweats being grey. In the pdf attachment for the camp on the official site, it does not mention any color preference. Is this still the case?

What you are allowed to bring in will be decided by the R&D CO who checks you in. No, no and no are the most likely answers to your questions. I was only in the USP, never the camp, but a mouse pad would only be useful as a bed for the mouse infestation there.

The only things that are usually allowed in are a wedding ring, one inexpensive piece of religious jewelry, one pair of eyeglasses, and "legal paperwork". You will have to sign a document saying that none of the items is worth more than $100.00 (not what you paid for it, what the used item is "worth"). You will be able to purchase almost everything you need from the Commissary.

I'm not really sure where you're getting your information but you aren't allowed to take anything. You have to buy all of your things from commissary. You will be given some slip on shoes, some clothing and toiletries when you surrender but that is all. You cannot bring your own clothes and shoes. And you really cannot bring your own luxury items. I'm not even sure what the heck you'd do with a mouse pad!
