Hello all!!! I introduced myself in the general space but here goes my local intro!!

I met Lee 2 yrs ago..... I worked as a counselor at his facility and it just happened. The first thing I ever said to him when I saw him was "you need to get away cuz you're gonna be trouble". Oh if I'd have known then what I know now!!! ha ha!!!! We became friends through my days there and soon enuff it led to our "capture"..... 10 months after meeting him I was escorted from the premises, threatened with my own prison time, lost my job, home, and friends. He was moved from the facility he was at then (a level II as they'd already moved him from my Level III to keep us apart) to a level IIII as his punishment..... lets just say that some days I think his punishment for duping the system was A LOT worse than mine.

I would never change my relationship with Lee... it started out hard and continues to be hard. The one thing I would do differently is I would have been strong enuff to have quit before they found out..... but what I can say, the idea of giving up seeing him EVERY day was too much.... so I stayed and they caught up with us. Otherwise, we're making it thru. We got engaged last year and have hopes of getting married sooner rather than later. Of course that is now on hold as the DOC has seen fit to ban me permanently from any VA facility. Petty I tell ya, argh!

So I found my way on here because some days I just don't know how to handle it. I mean, I fell in love with him unexpectedly and now I'm doing time. I am ok with that.... but I also have to live with what I know of where he is. He's in an awful awful place cuz he fell in love with a girl on the wrong side of the desk.... and I hate that for him. He's moody as hell since he moved and some days I honestly want to beat his head into a wall!!! We've tried to walk away from each other a billion times but the fact that we're in love always keeps us coming back..... We've both been through a lot to have this relationship and we keep fighting not only everyone else but ourselves... interesting way it turns out eh?!!?

Anyways... I'll be around... and answering questions if I can based on the fact that I know the "inside" scoop!!!! Take it easy ladies and I truly hope being here makes the hurt of the next 3 yrs away. Thanks in advance!

Brandy,

Do not apologize for your feelings.... I think it's natural to wonder the "what ifs" and to now wonder if you could have prevented it. What you need to know is that you could NOT have prevented this..... it is NOT your fault... and you have NOTHING to regret.

Maybe things would have been different had you guys remained together.... but hindsight is ALWAYS 20/20. You could not have known what he would do that week. You could not have known that you'd be preg. (You're not psychic are you?!) There is no way to go back in time and to redo that moment... it's impossible and you're wasting more time if you spend your efforts dwelling on the past. Therefore, I suggest you focus on the here and now...what do you want from himnow? What do you want to offer him now? What will you do with him back in your life now? Those are things you need to know before you meet up with him again......

I wish you sooo much luck and if you ever need a shoulder, I am here!

T.

Hi, how is everyone. Well, let me first start off, I'm 19yr old.. and my fiance is in Greensville C.C., He's been in Deep Meadow C.C., and the county jail. I've been with him since I was 15, so it wasn't that hard to wait for him until May 25, 2006 (he gets released 2days before my birthday, what a great present huh? haha) .. I recently moved down here to Powhatan, VA, which is probably 25 minutes away from Powhatan C.C., Deep Meadow & James River...I moved here in Oct, and was going to go see him Nov 5, but he got put in the "hole" for fighting, and a week later, transfered him to Greensville C.C., it really sucked because I was SOOO close to seeing him, and now about an hour away!!!! Well, he got locked up Dec 20, 2003, and I think that the county really screwed him over, his side of the "story" was recorded, and "somehow" the tape got pieces recorded over... How weird huh, yeah.. It is, parts of it were missing (we realized this when we read thru the printed version)... One part he was talking about how he was eating dinner with my family, then all of a sudden the next thing he says is something about a car... Really wack. But it's alright, I actually think being locked up has helped him, not only mentally, but physcially. I love him to death, and he will always be my bestfriend. Two months after I met him in 2001, he got locked up for burglery, which really upset me, but I was still a teenager (he was 19)... I talked to him once-in-a-while, but nothing serious, he got released a year later, and we started talking again, it got serious, and then Dec 20th came of 2003, and the police called me to speak to him, and asked him to just come down to the station and talk to them... Of course we werent going to say no! haha. But, as he went in, they arrested him... I guess he found out who his real friends were (one of them said he did the crime...) The justice system is really messed up, they wouldn't let me testify for him, since they said "they can cross-examine you" i was like SO WHAT... I was there when everything happened the night of the "crime" and know what my baby did, and what he didnt do, I believe that if I had gotten up on the stand, he would've been only charged with one crime and not the second... But oh well, this prison time has brought us closer together, AND he asked me to merry him the other day (I was shocked.. becuz all the years I've known him, he's always said "im never going to get married"... haha i guess he changed his mind)... I cannot wait for the day he comes home :-) If anyone has anyone in Greensville C.C. & have questions, you can email me at XxGentlebesosxX@aol.com OR If anyone knows how to get married in Greensville C.C. PLEASE email me, we are SOOO stumped on how to do it!!!

Thanks for reading

Nicole

Hi. My name is Sarah. My man got locked up on Sept 3rd this year. His charges are Statutory Burglary, Grand Larceny, and 3 violations of probation. Now this is his second grand larceny..last time they gave him 11 years and suspended 9 & 1/2 so he only served 1 year and some change. I have no clue what is going to happen, and i'm so scared. He has court tomorrow. It's only to set his trial date though. I see him every wed over a tv screen w/a camera and a phone I was going to marry him, I got the license and everything but my mom will kick me out if I do it, and I have nowhere or noone else to turn to, because i'm from pennsylvania so all my friends are there. I don't know what to do, but I do know that I will wait for him for as long as I have to. He is my SOUL*MATE!! Well if anyone has any advice, let me know please. If not, thanks for listening.

-Sarah

Thumbs up

Hello, I'm Michelle and my boyfriend/soulmate, Keith, is currently in Mecklenburg CC for felony assault & battery. We met after he was let out on bond for the crime last summer. Was the crime that he's in there for really that bad?......No. He got into a bar fight in Henrico county and got attested. But unfortunately, this was his third charge & so it was changed from a misdemenor to a felony. He is the most caring & easy-to-love man I've even heard of (not including books & movies). We've been apart since July and according to the local jails, he SHOULD be getting out on April 14th to start work release. He doesn't have another release date yet for serving full-time. But now DOC has him & they say they don't have any records of work release for him. But (they tell me) if he has a release date for it, then he will only be in DOC for processing (I've heard how long that can take). So far I've been hoping for the best & expecting the worst. I have a 6 year old daughter and he has an 8 year old son. Our kids get along like brother & sister, but they both miss him alot. He's always told me that he doesn't want his son to visit him & we've agreed that it would be best not to tell my daughter were he is at since her father would use that as leverage to take her from me permenantly. Anyways, I'm sso very excited to have found a place were I can talk openly & honestly with other people going thru the samething. It's been so hard these past few months not being able to say anything about what we've been going thru & trying to figure out everything on my own. This is my first & only time going thru this & most in the VA law enforcement have been giving me the run around about everything. I hope this website stays open for many years to come.

Unhappy

hello My name is Christina. I am 26 yrs old, married with three children (2,3, & 5 yrs). My best friend Ross is currently in keen mountain correctional center in western va. We have been friends since early '99 when he married my friend from high school. We had just started to be good friends when he invited me and my boyfriend (now my husband) on a trip with his daughter (lily is 7 now she, she was under a yr then) wife, brother in law, and two kids he was watching for the weekend, to the beach. I wish I knew then, what I knew now. I was with him at the time he "did what he did" to get in prison. Nothing! I testified in trail after trail hung the jury every time. We didn't lose until him wife decided not to pay for his lawyer. We got some court appointed lawyer, who was good buddies with the procuter they were more concerned about planning their fishing trip than us. Lost my job then my lost my home because of all the court dates. I fought for my friend, I never gave up. I never will. I know he is innocent, I was there. Now I am the only one other that his mom who believes in him. His wife left him, his other friends gone. Now it's been 6 yrs. I have not seen him in about 5 yrs, I had move out of state for 3 yrs. He was moved all around the area ( he has a attitude and will protect him self) then he got into powatan I planned to move back to richmond, the week before my move he wrote me and said he was being moved to keen mountain. That is along trip. Iam hoping to go next summer and take his daughter with me. I am trying to get him see if he can be moved closer to richmond. But.... Anyone eles with friends and family in keen mountain I would love to here from yall. I got a long while before he will be out. Jan. 26, 20017 I will be where ever he is at and I dont care if we are 43 yrs old we will have on hell of a party
lots of love
Christina Johnson

I posted the below with "Worried Mom" at PTO with Great Responses...So I am Sharing it Again... Hope You Find My Story and Suggestions Helpful...
All the Best

Hi, I my only child, age 26 is incarcerated for a first time multiple robbery offense for 30 years. From jail to prison, he has been away for only 2 of the 30 years remaining. In the beginning, my son said to me, "Mom, I have died, I have no life anymore"... Through the wonders of God, prayer, family and friends, today, my son is attending acquiring his degree in Business at Ohio University through the College program for incarcerated persons. He has a relationship with God. He and his father have reunited. He and I, other family members have grown closer. He finally realized that those whom he thought was his friends, were just as much lost souls as he was. The blind leading the blind straight to the "hells" of prison. My son will be the first to tell you today " I may be in prison, but Prison is NOT in me"...

Here are a few things I wish to share to assist your child(s)....

1. Write your child often...Even just to say "I was thinking of You", "I Love You and Support You"...Don't depend on anyone else to do this. Nothing like a mothers Love.

2. Clip out the newspaper, or buy the book of crosswords/ word finds and etc and take pages from it and mail it to them. If they are allow books or magazines...Subscribe to at least one, preferable their newspaper. Go on the internet and copy, paste and print spiritual, reglious, comic, jokes, and etc and mail in an envelope. You don't even have to write a note with it... I've found appeal information off the internet and printed it off and dropped in the mail... My son loves sports, music... I send him clippings of whatever interest him off the internet... Little things go a long way...

3. Put something Special in their accounts for birthdays or to reward them when they accomplish something while in prison.

4. Under that only through Education shall "Recidivism" stop. If your child needs their GED, make it your business to write the prison or go online and look up that prison information towards acquiring an education. Don't stop at a GED for education, Just because there are no federal funding to allow for college of incarcerated persons, doesn't mean they can't register and take college course with their state local or out of state college. It is much cheaper in state tuition. Stop looking for a program for incarcerated persons. Ohio University happens to have one for that if you can afford it and it is a good program...BUT almost all local colleges have "DISTANT EDUCATION COLLEGE PROGRAM"...and all inmates are entitled to attend with the approval of their Warden. Instate Tuition at a local college cost an estimate of $130- $150 for 3 credit (1) course. Get a fund raising going, ask for donations, with-in your family, friends, church and etc to help pay for one or two courses each semester. When my family ask about gift for my birthday, christmas, etc...I simply tell family and friends...a contribution to my son college education and/or his appeal...My point to you, if you want to put an end to our children coming out of prison to not being able to get a decent job, having a home and being independent, then, what can we expect but for them to do crimes and return back... This is called "Recidivism" Read up on this matter! Support your child towards rehabilation. If you need assistance in this area...write me anytime.

5. Tell Your Love One NOT to BORROW, EVER from anyone while incarcerated. Go Without!!! Not even a cigarette, for the interest on the loan WILL BE higher than the loan. This is why it is important to put something on your loveones account. $2.00 is better than Nothing. They will appreciate it. Tell them not to join any gangs. Mind their own business... "Do You"... Gossip will get you hurt and/or killed. Keep Busy. Have a schedule that includes exercising, mediation, reading, job and/or school. Make the Best of the Situation. Again, I can't stress the issue of NOT BORROWING...from anyone. You never want to owe a favor. Don't Loan Out Either, or Your may be the Bank for everyone and having trouble getting them repay their debts to you. Simply Again... Tell them to do themselves...or go without.

6. My son's deadbeat child support father, today, 20 Something years later, maturer, has promised our son to financially support his account until he is released. Our son has a budget for general expenses and basic needs. He can pay the MCI collect calls, newpaper, magazines and etc from that monthly allottment his dad now provide. This enables me and others to contribute to his college education and appeals. GOD IS GOOD!!! GOD IS ALWAYS ON TIME!!!

7. If your loveone is incarcerated out of state and it is hurting you not seeing him, and it cost to much to fly. Greyhound Bus service have all types of special programs and rates. Amtrak does too. My son is in state, but is over 9 hours away from me. I have met others that live in my area and have to travel that far, we now group together and even stay over night and bunk together in a hotel to save money. If there is a will, there is a way. If you have to stay overnight, book your room on the internet, it is much cheaper... Due to the distance, we are overnighters, The room cost $79 per night, we pay $43 with taxes...off the internet...for the same room... The hotel has offered us the 2 room Suite at a discounted rate. Weekend rental car service is much cheaper. You can rent a car/suv and buddy travel to visit your loveones. There are so many things to do, to get you where you want to go... It's call "If there's A Will there's A Way"... For God Is Good!


8. My son says to me too, that it is hard for him to have to leave us, he wants to go home with us. Yet, he also says, I will never tell you to stop. Some inmates have chosen not to receive visitors until they are moved closer to home, which is understandable. Bottom line, unless they refuse visitation...Go see them. Also, while visiting my son, we witness family members of another inmate, arguing during the visit...If you could see the expression the saddness on the face of the inmate having to sit and watch his two siblings argue on his time...Please, come at looking and acting your best. Leave all the negativity at home. Visits should be pleasant, loving and to put a tiny bit of normalcy in that loveones life. For, tomorrow is not promised.

9. Don't baby them. Don't condone, but don't condemn them either. If you see or hear them changing for the better, let them know. If they are not, let them know.

10. Do not become friendly with the prison personnel, however, call or write your childs counselor, let them know that you are supportive to your child rehabilation and the family is available to assist with this. Find out what programs are being offered at the prison. Know the prison rules and regulations. When ever requesting for, e.g. that your child be allowed to attend college, which must be approval by the Warden, let them know, that education is a preventive measure to prevent relapses nto criminal behavior which is commonly referred to as "Recidivism". This will go a long way. Most prison officials think that the families have thrown away the key on the inmate. Be professional and pleasant at all times. Make sure that the counselor, the Warden have updated emergency contact information. Your child won't be treated any different the other inmates, but you have put them on notice that you hold the prison and warden accountable for your childs health and safety.

11. Don't assume anything about prison life, the prison your child is incarcerated at, and don't depend on your child letting you know, they sometimes don't know themselves. Call the prison and ask. If you don't know who to ask, ask your childs counselor.

12. Stay in touch with web sites such as this one. Don't be afraid or ashame to come out about your child, your loveone, your friend being incarcerated. I know, for my son is the first person ever in my entire family to be incarcerated and to be incarcerated in a max prison for 30 years. It was truly difficult for me to come out about this. It happens to the Best of Families... We are all in this together.

13. If you want your child to have the faith, you must have it, show it, and convey it. Regardless, of how much they may not be ready for it, send them spiritualand religious information. I simply tear pages from old books, magazines and send it. One day when they are bored and feeling hopeless, trust me... God is always On Time...

14. Send them photos of family, friends, of the house and etc. Never enough photos.

15. When writing them, tell them about your day. No need to discuss prison, they know, they are living it. Be honest about your day and things that happen. My son often tells me, "Mom, I can hear you actually talking in your letters"... I keep it real.

16. Take Care Of Yourself. You can be no good to your loveone if you aren't good to yourself. Your Health Is Your Wealth...Physically, Mentally, Emotionally, Spiritually. Incarcerated persons worry about their families and close friends. My son, worries about me constantly, Just as I worry about him. So for me, I make it my business through visitations to see for my own eyes that my son is in good health, spirits and safe...vice versa. I have made a promise to my son and self, God willing, I will be at the Gate when he is Released, whether it is 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 years... I don't talk about taking care of myself, I do it, by any means necessary. So, please take care of yourself. Be Good to yourself. Live your Life to the fullest... Simply incorporate your love ones situation into it....

17. When Praying For Your Child to be in the Best of Health, Spirits and Safe, Pray for their Cell Mate, for a Healthy and Good Spirit cellmate makes for a Safe environment for Your Child and Vice Versa... I pray for all the inmates, the warden, counselors, and even the C.O.'s... Like one CO told me, We are no different than your son, we just didn't get caught... We are all human beings and God's children

I hope these suggestions are helpful and know that I am with all the Mothers. Fathers, Family and Friends with a Child or Children in Prison... It's truly difficult, but it's a Blessing each day that they are still with us. I know some Families that visit a cold grave.

All the Best

Hello I just joined the board tonight. I am a 25 yr old single mother of one and future step-mom to 2. I met my boyfriend while working at his first lawyers office. It begin as just accepting his collect callswhen no one else would, to a blossoming friendship. It grows more and more everyday and I can proudly say I love this man like I have loved no other. He was recently transferred from Mecklenburg but now he is currently at Augusta Corectional. I have yet been there to visit but I will definitely be getting there soon. I really need a car. Looking for a great support system to get me through the sentence. Estimated DOR is 01/17/13

My name is Tammy and my husband is at Petersburg camp. We have 5 kids (2 mine, 2 his, 1 ours). He self surrendered 12-23-05. He was sentenced to 36 months. He is as close as they could have put him. We are hoping the time will fly by. We have a long ways to go though.

Well, I assume my original intro was so long ago that it's been erased. So, My name is Cindy. I live in WV now, we just moved from MD. My husband is David and he is currently at Deep Meadow CC. He was at Coffeewood until 7/13/04 and he was released. He managed to screw up again and is now in the VA system again for VOP. We have 3 dogs. Shasta is a female Husky mix, Wolfgang (Wolfie) is a male Samoyed mix and Nomad (Nimrod or Blockhead most of the time, lol) is a male Boxer/Pitt mix. Theyare my sanity through all of this as well as my friends and the PTO family. I'm very glad I found this site on his first go-round.

Daughter was sentenced to 3 years a little over a month ago for a violation of probation ie failed a drug test. Shes still sitting in city jail and we found a lawyer to file a motion for reconsideration and I am going to write a letter to the judge. Not holding out a lot of hope because this judge seemed to love giving people the max. but still hoping. Trouble is that she is almost 6 months pregnant. Anyone have any trouble in the state of Va of the family taking custody of the baby???? How about not being seen by a doctor in over a month?? I am so worried about her and the baby. Whats up with Virginia and their treatment of people? Is there anyway to get her tranferred to Tennessee where she lived and where we lived?? Any information or ideas would be most welcome. Thanks

Hi all. My name is Barbara and my daughter is waiting to be transferred somewhere. Shes still in a city jail. We do have in a motion for reconsideration of her sentence. I dont know if there is any hope but doing alot of praying. I just completed a letter to the judge and will send it in begging him to reconsider since my daughter is pregnant and it would be wonderful if the child actually knew its mother before it was 3 years old. However I think she got one of those judges that love to give out long sentences and never change their mind.
