    I am very interested in meeting with the Warden of Huntingdon to discuss the possibility of filming one of the programs; would like to take a tour as well and get his views on various policies highlighting ones he believes might be seen as models for others and so forth. I would appreciate setting up a meeting or knowing more how to go about making that happen.Thank you for any assistance.

    Is there any way to find out when Inmate number AK6101 is scheduled for release?

  13. Sad girl Tue, Jun 04 2013 12:56 AM

    I just want to know why they took a man..a convicted sex offender....off Megans Law Website? It just ..doesn't seem right. Or Fair. That little child...a boy...has no voice. It just doesn't sit right with me. It makes me soo angry. That man has been re-arrested and is in Huntingdon. He didn't change. He only changed his address. I dated that man once..and he LIED to me. It wasn't until someone told me the truth..that I "saw" him for what and who he is. I can forgive almost any crime, except sex offenses. I can't. I often wonder about that child he hurt and I hurt for that little boy. Breaks my heart!!!!

  14. Sad girl Tue, Jun 04 2013 1:09 AM

    Oh..and thanks...to the judge and jury and the lawyers that got that convicted sex offender a reduced sentence...I hope to God..it was worth it. Should be ashamed of yourselves. What if that had been YOUR son or grandson that was molested? would you all be sooo quick to let a plea bargain stand? He is..for now...incarcerated. I never dreamed or imagined ..a man like him could exist. My own Dad....is a retired NYPD cop. And I got nailed by some lying pedophile. May he burn in hell for his crime.

  15. Anonymous Sun, Jul 28 2013 8:09 PM

    Sad girl, would you care to tell us this inmates number or last name so we can all be aware?
