Default New to PTO

Good Morning and Hello to all in the Colorado Forum,
I am new to this and new to the Colorado DOC system as a prison wife. My Husband was incarcerated in January and has a 5 yr sentence, he is currently housed at Fremont Correctional Facility(only god knows why) and is awaiting an appeal on his sentencing. I hope to meet others from around the state and learn of your experiences.
One thing I have quickly learned so far is that the D.O.C. gives you basic need to know information but they actually expect you to know even more than that and if you don't follow the rules you could risk losing visitations and or contact with your Loved One.
Hope Everyone has a blessed weekend!

Welcome to PTO!
Sadly your observation about the DOC is pretty accurate across most states. That's one of the reasons I love PTO so much. We help fill in the gaps for and with each other!

He could be in Buena Vista or worse yet, Sterling!! Yes, its good to have people on this web site who know what's going on to some extent. Sometimes it just who you talk to within DOC and then the next day someone else contradicts that.
