Subject: Survive prison

State prison is for all persons prosecuted and convicted by the District Attorney of a particular county within a state. These charges can range from simple theft to rape and murder.

InmateAid has been doing this at a high level of consistency since 2012. The letters are printed by an automated machine process as delivered by software that the user initiates when buying a Letter Package.

Subject: Offender phone calls

We are sorry to hear the news of your son's sentence. There is going to be an orientation period of a week or so. Once that is completed, he will be allowed to make phone calls (you cannot call him) through GTL-Connect Network.

You can (and definitely should) write a nice, humble letter to the warder and "appeal your case". Don't dwell on your former charge or when it was, but more importantly how you have a plan to help the inmate to not re-offend. To help them become a good citizen

Subject: Medical treatment

This sounds like a logistical nightmare ahead, knowing the bureaucratic layers you're going to have to go through. Whether it's federal or state, you're going to have to start with the Unit Secretary and begin the hunt for who are the decision-makers for releasing all of the medical records.
