What is the "tattle book/program' at Wrightsville about? I was told they have to tattle on each other and record it in a 'tattle book" each day or they are kicked out of the program... does anyone have more info on this?

Hi, My name is Tisha, My boyfriend is at Benton County jail right now and knows someone who is at Benton work release in which he's wanting me to get a mailing address for. Can someone tell me how to locate this address so he can send a letter to an inmate there.

my man is locked up in Cummins and has been for about a year on a 12 yr. sentence. We are getting married in a few months and we have been together off and on since 2000. My honey is very well known and NOBODY messes with him!! Back in the day he used to run things on the street but look where that notorious position got him...nowhere!! Hopefully this will be the wakeup call he needs.....

90 days until my man comes home YEAH!!!!! It's been too long without him. And the kids are missing him just as much as I am. I just pray he can make the board with no denials. I'm sure he will considering no violents offences and they are soooo crowded.

My son is currently in Varner Super Max (18 month "special" program). He's done 6 years, not all in Varner Max, of the 11 years he must serve of the 70% law, enacted 1 year prior to his sentence. He was charged with 2 counts aggravated robbery. It was dope money and at the time he thought "big deal". He knows now what he did was wrong and is paying a debt to society. He is a changed young man, now 27 years old.

I watched and read some of the laws that were to be looked at during the Legislative Session pertaining to the 70% law for cyrstal meth convictions, by Mr. Ledbetter. Nothing for sure yet as far as I know. Ledbetter wanted to have them look had other charges too, like 1st time felons only doing 1/3 of the 70%. I emailed my Representative and Senator how I felt of Ledbetter's bills, what bravado he has to put those forth. And God only knows the State of Arkansas is broke because of it. I hear we may be finding the money for Drug Courts which we do not have yet. Hopefully it will come from letting some prisoners out that deserve it!

Thanks for listening to all that!
