      Hi Gloria,

      Prisons do not run on time. Your inmate will be arriving sometime on January 2, if all goes smoothly.

    If you are disapproved, you will receive a letter from the prison setting forth the
    reason for disapproval; the prisoner will also receive notice of the disapproval
    but will not be given the reason. If you are denied approval to visit, you may
    reapply, you may appeal the denial and/or the prisoner may appeal the denial. If
    the reason for the denial is based on inaccurate or incomplete information on the
    Visitor Questionnaire, you may resubmit an accurate and complete questionnaire.
    Sometimes the reason for denial is that the prison requires additional information
    (for example, evidence that the applicant is no longer on probation); in those cases,
    you should resubmit the questionnaire and provide the additional information.
    If you do not agree with the reason given for the disapproval, you may appeal
    by writing to the Warden at the prison. He/she is required to respond to your
    appeal within 15 working days of receiving the appeal. If dissatisfied with the
    institution’s response or action, you may refer your appeal, with a copy of the
    institution’s decision, to the Director of the Division of Adult Institutions or his/her
    designee at: California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of
    Adult Institutions, P. O. Box 942883, Sacramento, California, 94283-0001, Attention:
    Director, Room 351-N. A written response to appeals addressed to the Director shall
    be provided within 20 working days from the date of receipt. The prisoner may
    independently appeal the denial of approval by utilizing the normal prisoner appeal
    process within the prison

    My quetion is my daughter was recently denied being release from SHU to general pop. on a 18month SHU term which she is now going on 3 1/2 years because the warden indicated that people from the SHU disrupt the yards which is unfair because just because one ruined it shouldn’t ruin it for others and I now she has to come back to committe in February and her counselor backed her up to get out of SHU I want to write a letter to the warden would that be ok or will it ruin it for my daughetr

      You are dealing with the American prison system, which is in itself a virtual country of it’s own, with the “warden” being the “governor” of the unit and the States prison director being the president over the faux country.
      All prisons operate under the rules and guidelines of those two governing authorities within the state where the prison system exists.
      As a general rule, your daughter is serving too short of a sentence to be able to mount a finally successful challenge to virtually any decision made by one of those “governing authorities.”
      Because you have to go through the entire process from filing either a complaint or an appeal with the warden, then the prison director, then the state’s district court, appeals court, state supreme court, then the federal district courts, the appeals court and the U.S. Supreme court.
      “Sometimes” you can bypass the State courts in extreme constitutional violations within the prison system.
      And each court that you have to go through will generally require six months to a year before a final appealable ruling from the lower court.

      As for writing a letter to the warden about your daughter’s situation.
      It largely depends on the mental attitude of the warden that you write.
      In “some” instances, with “some” wardens, it could result in drawing unwanted attention to your daughter.
      For what it might be worth.
      Your best bet might be to stick with providing your daughter with all the moral support that she can get from her friends and family while she is serving her sentence by maintaining a consistent communication with her while she is incarcerated.
      Get as many of her family and friends to write her as often as they can reasonably do so, and sometimes that includes sending her a few bucks to help her buy the stuff that she often needs that the prison will not provide for her.
      But always remember that the primary thing that she needs now is “YOUR” moral support and that of her other family and friends.
      She is alone, she is surrounded by strangers, many of which can be violent and dangerous.
      She needs to be constantly reminded that someone on the outside still cares for her in order to help keep her from turning into the same types of people that she is surrounded by.
      Write her, write her, write her.
      And whenever you can, visit her.

    Not so long ago, in the Russian Internet content, there appeared photos of women serving sentences in Valley Prison in Chowchilla, California, velli-shtat-kaliforniia-5ce7ad57f5fd8f00b3824226, it became interesting to me. Can I, as a citizen of Russia, write, communicate with the conclusion? You ask why? The prison is not a resort, and even small, but good news, is very psychologically supportive.
