Default Federal prisons

None, I did my time in state prison and county jail. For what it's worth, Otisville and Ray Brook are basically luxury prisons. That's where they send white collar criminals. Has a good reputation among inmates!

Was waiting for the holidays to be over before seeing him, but am going to get on the Website & read up on visitation info. Don't have to fill visitation forms out again, found that out, also sending M/O's to the same place, so not much changes except phone & mailing address. If any visitation insight, I would appreciate it.

My husband is in FCI Fairton I miss him more and more every day. The children and I are so heart broken I'm just trying to stay strong for all of us but it is hard; especially when you are doing it all alone without any family support.
