Question Stanley Correctional Facility

Hello everyone. My name is Amy and my boyfriend is at Stanley Correctional Facility. He has about 2 months left there and then he is either going to Winnebago or Sanger B Powers or McNaughton for 4 more months for minumum and then will be out. If anyone has any information on either of these 3 minimum prisons such as visitation rules and regs and hours please let me know. Also if you have family/friends/love ones in either of these places it would be great to communicate with you.

Thank you,
Amy

Default Hi I'm new here

Hi. My b/f just got to Dodge this week for A & E. He is in for his 6th DUI and got 3 years. He is eligible for the ERP and can get out quite a bit early when finishing this. I have a few questions.

1. How long is the process at Dodge approx. right now for anyone who has recently been through it.

2. Do most people have to go to a county jail to wait for room at one of the prisons after done with A & E?

3. How long is the wait averaging for the 6 month Earned Release Program?

4. Should I get on the visitation list at Dodge even though I can't visit cuz we're not married? Will that list go with him to the next place?

5. His P.O. told me something about getting out early with good behavior - she said 50% early but thought he could get out even earlier with this ERP. Anyone know anything about early release?

Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Sandy

I am a penpal of a fantastic guy in Green Bay. We've been writing for about 9 months now. I live in the Uk and got into this because I was looking for a death row pp but the agency misunderstood my request. Although I also have a DR pp now, I'm so glad I have this other guy. I get more out of the process than I ever imagined I would. I'm now a passionate advocate for pen pals as a result of both experiences. We still haven't got the phone stuff sorted out yet but am looking forward to chats in the future.

Good afternoon, I just found this site today and wanted to introduce myself. My boyfreind was recently sentenced to 3 years in and 3 years out
He was in county for about 2 weeks and recently transferred to Dodge about 1.5 weeks ago so we are at the beginning of this painful journey and of course I cannot visit him until A&E is complete and then who knows where he will be.
Any advice or support I can get would much be appreciated.
We have a 14 month old son so that makes it extra difficult!
Thanks in advance!

Hello all, I am Diane near the Milwaukee area. My boyfriend is out in Jackson Correctional institution. He has been there for a couple of month and will be in prison for the next couple of years maybe 4 more year. We were intro. to each other from a coworker of mine back in November of 2010. Two weeks of knowing him he ended up in jail then to prison. While he was in jail I came to see him everyday and fell in love with him. Now that he is in Prison I try to see him atleast twice a month, write letters and the phone calls.
Some people around me put me down for being with a guy in prison and it is hard to deal with that however that does not matter it is what I and my kids feel about the situation.
I do want to thank other members on this site who is going thru what I am going thru. I am not alone.

I was also woundering is there a forum about Prison ride share on here?

I go to school in Milwaukee and have only been dealing with this for one week total. It's hard but I enjoy the support on these boards already and would love to get advice from ladies in Wisconsin...

Hi I am from the U.K. I have a very good friend in Milwaukee county jail, he's been there 3 months and he is awaiting trial. He is severely mentally ill He has been in mental/psychiatric hospitals four times in the past year. He is not doing well in the jail and has been suicidal. (He was suicidal before he went to jail). I am praying that he is sent to Mendota or Winnebago Mental Health complex, because he needs lots of treatment, especially dialectical behaviour therapy, and I don't think he will get that in prison. I was hoping to go to visit him next month but it looks as if his trial is coming up in January and I can't afford to go over next month and in January. Does anyone else have loved ones in Milwaukee county jail?

Hi there!

My name is Cate, and my husband is currently incarcerated at Oshkosh Correctional Institution in Oshkosh, WI. He is serving an 18-month sentence for non-payment of child support (first offense), and his expected release date is Febuary 19th, 2013. He is eligible for ERP, but we have to wait for him to be reclassified in January so he can move to a minimum-security facility and start working toward that.

We are facing some unique challenges in the Wisconsin prison system. I am currently on probation for a misdomeaner offense (which is making phone contact and visits damn-near impossible). He also has medical issues (he has lytic spondylothes and degenerative disk disease, which require a back surgery -- he also has a lot of dental problems) that need to be addressed before he can be reclassified.

Finally, I am 8-1/2 months pregnant with our first child together (we've been married since June 2nd, 2010). He was sentenced in August and we've been coping well so far, but it's been really hard for him to be incarcerated during the pregnancy (and potentially the first year of our child's life).

I'm glad that I found this place -- if anyone wants to network, I'd be glad to send them a message. Also, I'd definitely appreciate some insight into medical/psych proceedure and ERP in the Wisconsin Prison System.

Thanks!
Cate
