Just thought of a question?

Have a question?

Subject: Sending mail inside
YES, the InmateAid Letter Service sends YOUR actual postage mail and photos to the prisons and jails using OUR return address. It is super-easy to use, convenient and reliable since 2012. Robust packages start at only $8.00.
Subject: Relationship issues
All you can do is continue writing letters. Some inmates, especially newly incarcerated ones are affected by the harsh disconnection from society. They might be "in their feelings" and are not ready to communicate with people on the outside just yet.  If you are persistent, the letters will eventually make an impact and she will eventually respond.
Subject: Offender phone calls
Inmates will receive a receipt of deposit in their daily mail. 
Subject: Parole & probation
Parole is offered in the Sentencing Memorandum by the Judge. Are you sure he is eligible? How long has he served? Usually, parole hearings begin at 1/3 of the served time. If you are not certain, you can contact the Clerk of the Court and request his sentencing document signed by the Judge. If he is eligible, it is up to the Warden in his facility as to when a hearing will be scheduled. 
Subject: Release questions
Usually the good time credit is 15%. If he was a model inmate, then the approximate release date would be 85% of 15 months or a little less than 13 months. He should be home in less than 60 days
Subject: Re-entry & rehabilitation
Camp is another term for "minimum security prison". Depending on the circumstances, as an inmate is nearing their release date, the DOC will "step down" their custody level preparing them for re-entry. This is a GOOD thing, not a bad thing. They would not offer this if they had any trust concerns with this inmate.
Subject: Release questions
the new Administration didn't promote the Act, we have no idea how it'll affect the inmates now that qualify.
Subject: Sentencing questions
it's not the State it's the Judge deciding on the penalty. First-time DUI, no injuries or property damage, our best guess would be probation and maybe some sort of education about drinking and driving.
Subject: Re-entry & rehabilitation
Yes, of course, it is the "right thing to do" if you have the spirit and patience to see it through recovery. Any show of love or concern with help someone struggling with addiction
Subject: Parole & probation
Congress eliminated parole for federal defendants convicted of crimes committed after November 1, 1987 under the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984. Therefore, federal inmates can no longer receive a parole release, but they may earn reduced terms for good behavior - up to 15% off of their sentence. If your husband was granted an early release and late violated the terms of their probation, they could be required to finish the entire original federal sentence in a federal prison after their state bid was completed.
