Federal prison is not worse than state prison, but it is prison nonetheless. The child pornography charge is not going to make his bit any easier. They send most of these type inmates to a facility in Arizona known for this. They tend to be safer among like-charges inmates. RDAP is a fantastic program if your inmate has put his substance abuse in the record with the Pre-Sentence Report prior to sentencing. This is the ONLY way to qualify. Plus,

Halfway houses are a way for the correctional divisions to ease an inmate back into society. It is a much looser environment but there is still supervision that residents must abide by. Inmates will be tested for drug or alcohol use and one small slip gets them sent back to serve the full sentence.

Solitary confinement is 24 hours a day lock-down. Three showers, three hours of rec per week. They can receive mail, reading material, limited commissary and one 15-minute phone call per week. The guards feed them through a slot in the door and when removed to shower or go to rec, they are handcuffed during the procedure. The loneliness is the worst part.

Some inmates find it easier to separate from their

The journey ahead seems impossible. Not knowing is actually worse than being there. The human spirit will prevail as you figure things out. You must keep to yourself and not get in other people's business. Do things that will improve you while there. Read, take college courses, exercise. Improve YOU and take care of YOU. Do the time, don't let the time "do you".

There is NO internet access allowed in prison except at the state level where the Kansas Department of Corrections allows monitored Internet use. It is the only such area that does. At the federal level, there are email pilot programs in use that I used often, but there was no internet access. There are delays in the messaging and the charges were high but it was convenient.

The separation from family is terrible, but it's tougher on them to go on without you. But the worst thing that I had to deal with was the death of my mother. I was not there for others suffering, for her funeral nor was I able to feel closure.
