    Can Inmates really recieve emails? May I ask how can I do that?

  8. Kimmie Tue, Oct 18 2011 2:32 AM

    If a loved one was denied visitation due to being a part of a past violation can they still write and receive letters and phone calls from and to the inmate and how do I appeal the denial? Please help.

  9. Caoimhe Fri, Oct 21 2011 1:50 PM

    Martinez - You can email an inmate trough corrlinks.com. You need to set up a profile and add 'credit' to the account. It costs 25cent per email you send and you can use up to something like 40,000 letters. I write LONG emails and I've never ran out of space. I know in a couple of months the inmates are going to be able to email back, but it won't happen this year, maybe early next year sometime. But it will mean you get the emails same day, so it's quicker than waiting. And I'm not too sure who pays that, you or the inmate from their books. Hope this helps!

    I had a company called the History Channel mail a calendar to my son who is at the Ft. Dodge Correctional Facility. It was mailed there on 11/16/2011 and he never received it. It cost $25. What am I supposed to do about it? My son's name is Kris Robertson and his # is 1124421.

  12. kim Sun, Jan 20 2013 10:48 AM

    corrlinks.com to email prisoners. Sign up, put your name on their list, you must know their inmate number to do this however and it will show up on their end and they will email you eventually, if not put in the 10.00 or 15.00 from your account and you can then email them if they don't email you first. YOU must sign up for an account there however. Good luck! And YES it does work. I do it.

  13. Gail Fri, Feb 08 2013 9:53 PM

    I use Corlink and it works well. It is cheaper than a stamp and it is nice o get an email notice "you got mail" It cost a quarter to send the email nothing to receive and read it.

    How can I call an inmate?

  19. Rob Wed, Aug 27 2014 10:53 AM

    Dear Warden, I’m coming to you with nothing but respect for what you do and what you have to put up with. But, in my short stint as an inmate in the United States prison system, I’ve learned only 1 thing, 1 major thing. Respect will be paid. Now, take a little walk with me. Even since my first day til my final release from a work release facility, I was always certain to show respect to the older vets. And, even though it was hard for me because I had given up my gang a few years earlier and had nobody to watch my back, I survived by staying low, keeping my mouth shut and, always, ALWAYS, showing respect. Now, let me ask you a question, man to man. Professional to professional. If you had the opportunity to run the prison just the way you wanted to run it. No congressman breathing down your neck every time a guard gets shanked, knowing full well in reality that that particular guard got it for not listening to your warnings to stay away from certain individuals. Sure he wasn’t breaking protocol but, you knew it was gonna happen, right? Right! God dammit, right? Right. That’s just an example but, a true one down to the bone. And, it’ll happen again and again and again until the end of time unless there’s a change. Please, take heed, really. The truths I’m about to spill are ones of forgiveness, compassion, and love. Now, I’ve spoken with the Lord and he urges me, that BBQ Sundays is the answer. Sorry I’m not better spokesman but, it, really, is a perfect plan. The Lord of Hosts urges me further that as a Warden, “Please, rather be disappointed in any convict that has to miss out.” See the change? Rather, just be disappointed. I don’t know if you’re from a prison that took cigarettes away when shit didn’t stop but, if not, let me break to you 1 hard truth. IT IS HELL! What if you were on the bottom of the food chain in Levenworth when the 1 vice that kept all the physcos at bay was a simple cigarette? Same analogy as the one I gave you about the guard that didn’t take your advice and PRIDEFULLY walked into a knife. Right? Right! Now, I don’t think it would be too much trouble for you to rally all your contacts and, plead to your congressman for BBQ Sundays, as a means of healing, really, but, what I think would really sell it is if the congressman were to come to find that the peeps of all the inmates were asked to, “Fill out a KITE too.” “Cigerettes! Cigerettes! Cigerettes!” they rallied. Now, I have a five point plan that I won’t release until all this is considered and taken seriously. I am not the father/dad/caring tax-paying citizen to handle all of this but, if a man who is doing upwords of 40 years cause his GOD DAMN COURT-APPOINTED ATTORNEY floated him up the river… The guy helped me out. Sincerely, Codie.
