Hello I am new to the site. I am still trying to learn about the system. My love has been sentenced 5-10 for second degree robbery one count. He spent almost a year at Southern Regional Jail and they have now transferred him to Eastern Regional Jail awaiting transfer. The judge told him and his attorney to file for a reconsideration after 120 days of his sentencing which was in November. He has never been in trouble ever this is his first time. They said the minimum he will serve is 5 years so I guess my question is....Is there any chance he may get out earlier than the five years?

If his sentence is a 5-10 it means the least amount of time he will serve is 5 years before becoming eligible to see the parole board. Interestingly enough, since WV state inmates receive one day off the back of their sentence (in his case 10 years) for each day he serves, he can also kill his sentence in 5 years without seeing the parole board or being on parole when he is discharged. The only way he can get out earlier than 5 years is if his sentencing judge grants his reconsideration.

Good luck!

Default Re: looking for other SO wives to share stories?

Aloha everyone,

I'm a SO wife whose husband is in WV state prison. Looking for other SO wives whose husband is in prison for being a SO. My husband was charged with child porn. Never been in trouble with the law before this is his first felony crime and his last because Im going to make sure he doesnt get in trouble again. This is all new to me so looking for other SO wives to help me understand WV prison system. I live in CA but my heart and love is in WV. I hope to find someone whose in the same boat as me. I hope for him to transfer to CA upon release. I lost friends and family because I married my husband so looking for comfort with other woman whose in the same position of feeling worried about hubby esp him being a sex offender. Thank you.

best regards,
Leanne

My son was sentenced to 36 months. He has served 12 months in jails in KY and was just sent to Gilmer FCI. If all goes well should be home in about 20 months. Never been to a FCI so trying to figure out routine....any pointers appreciated.

Hello, my name is JoAnn

My son entered Morgantown, WV on May 30th, 2013 for a three year sentence.

All new to us and confusing. He is attempting to get his Master Degree in Botany while there. But, we don't know how to set up online classes approved by Federal Prison system? Any help would be appreciated.

My husband enters Butner, WV in July. Both charged and sentenced at same time due to "plants". Michigan has been out for "blood" raiding Michigan Caregivers. Truly a surreal situation as many of you know.

Well blessings to all, JoAnn

What the heck do they mean by package anyway?

I would like to send packages to my son and husband; but, I don't know what they are or what to send.

Noticed this person asked for the link again. I sure could use a link to know what/where to purchase packages to send.

Thanks, JoAnn

Joann, Morgantown is a federal prison, so you will likely do better in the federal rather than state forum. Here's the link. You might want to not use your first and last names further, since this site can be viewed by anyone with a computer. Take care & good luck!

Default Hello all !

Hi,
My name is Sarah and I am adopted. I recently found out that my birth father is at Mt. Olive and has been for a very long time. I am new to, " all of this" so I am reaching out for advice and support as I imagine most of us here are. I just wrote my first letter to him after confirming with one of his/my relatives that I am indeed his daughter. He knew of my adoption so while my reaching out is probably I surprise I'm guessing that it's not a complete shock.
Thanks for reading !

I have a good friend in McDowell FCI currently serving a 5 year sentence. Expected to be released mid to late 2017. Just trying to be a good friend and support system to get him through this rough time.

Default Didn't know this site was so.....

Hello all. My username is equinox. I was looking to get information for an inmate who was recently assaulted in North Central Regional Jail. He's very very close friend of mine. I call him my brother from another mother. since he's been incarcerated we have spoken very little and I still like s*** because of it. Rumor Has It that he bumped into one of his arch nemesis LOL. They had a run-in with each other and my brother questions ported out of jail on a and sent to in hospital in very bad shape. My brother's name is Steven Denkenberger. He was allegedly assaulted by another inmate named Dustin Parker. I'm new to this site so if there's a better way of finding out this information it would be much appreciated

- happy to have found this site and became a member

Can anything be done to help bring improvements there? This is all new to me, so I dont really know where to start. I live in Harrison co, so it is fairly close for me to be able to visit, but several times they have cut our visits short by 10 minutes, which really stinks.

Anyway, nice to meet everyone!
If conditions get very bad it would be best to contact Charleston. If conditions get so bad obviously the so person in charge would not want to be held accountable. I personally can tell you first-hand how the place works because I am a former inmate of NCRJ. A lot of the things said by inmates to people on the outs maybe a little exaggerated. Anyways, I'd be happy to give you any information that you may need or have questions about. Just private message me I guess I really don't know how this site works. I am new to this site, but I'm very familiar with "the system" and how it works because I I've been doing a life sentence in installment plans. LOL( JK I have been In-N-Out of that revolving door. Plus I've had many people very close to me that I've held down while they did their time.
