  • 6. I was convicted of the following offense:I was convicted of conspiracy to commit money laundering. I also was convicted of lying to the FBi and transporting stolen property. It was all about theft of motor home vehicles.
  • 7. Pros of the facility:It has a large recreation yard. There’s also a cool officer: C. Hamilton.
  • 8. Cons of the facility:Most of the staff members don’t respect people. Yet they demand respect always. There isn’t much money at the prison. There are a lot sex offenders and I didn’t notice many programs.
  • 9.Food assessment of the facility:The food isn’t bad, but the portions were small. There was also a lot of Mexican food. Lots of beans and rice.
  • 10.Recreational opportunities at the facility:It has a large yard. There are a lot of activities. There is handball, basketball, whiffle ball, heavy ball. It’s a big playground for men.
  • 11.Programs available in the facility:There isn’t much in the way in programs. And the programs that are available don’t seem relevant to me. I didn’t want to learn programs that include finance and so forth. It was boring.
  • 12.Best jobs in the facility:Commissary is the best job because it pays the most.
  • 13.Living Quarters in the facility:The living quarters include 10-men tanks. They have one bathroom. There are also some double bunked cells.
  • 14.How would I assess safety in the facility? :For the most part, the yard is calm and safe. There are a lot of sex offenders. They walk it calmly and watch television. So if sex offenders can walk the yard, it’s safe.
  • 15.What types of pressure did I feel in the facility?:People try to politic. They try to say who the rats are and who the child molesters are and such.
  • 16.What is my general review?:This facility would be better if there were more programs and staff that actually were attempting to rehabilitate a person. But there is staff here like Michael Shallmoser that could care a less if you lived or breathed. He hates us all equally, and his co-employees all feel the same way.
  • 17.On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give the facility a rating of:5
  • 18.Personal Blog:It is so so or all right–I’ve seen worse.
