DESCRIPTION

The federal prison camp in Montgomery has a second name. Some people call Montgomery the Maxwell Federal Prison Camp. Whether it’s called Maxwell Federal Prison Camp or Montgomery federal prison camp, it’s the same place. Generally, people like this camp. It holds a lot of drug offenders who don’t have histories of violence. Of course, the federal prison camp also confines many people who have been convicted of white-collar type crimes. Those crimes include mail fraud, wire fraud, tax fraud, securities fraud, and so forth. The federal prison camp in Montgomery, or Maxwell federal prison camp, holds minimum-security males. They have release dates within 10 years. The prison is located on a military base, and it’s larger than most federal prison camps. Again, Maxwell has a reputation for being a good place to serve a federal prison term.

  • 6. I was convicted of the following offense:He was convicted of one count of conspiracy to commit mail, wire, and bank fraud. It sounds like three offenses, but since it’s conspiracy, the prosecutor rolled them all into one charge.

  • 8. Cons of the facility:The prisoner didn’t list any cons.
  • 9.Food assessment of the facility:The prisoner said that the food administrator doesn’t take much care in preparing the food. Federal prison camp in Maxwell serves small portions, he said.
  • 10.Recreational opportunities at the facility:The prison has a great track for running. There are aerobic machines and such, too.
  • 11.Programs available in the facility:There is a dog-training program that many people like. People can earn a Class B CDL license. Poeple can do college classes through correspondence. There are not too many vocational programs, even though the prison websites lists them as being available.
  • 12.Best jobs in the facility:The best jobs if you’re looking for pay is UNICOR. It’s a work camp, so everyone works. I think the best jobs are the ones that do not require much work. It’s important to avoid staff.
  • 13.Living Quarters in the facility:The quarters are in a dormitory. there are three buildings. One of the buildings is reserved for the Residential Drug Abuse Program, or RDAP participants. There are about 300 people in each building, The total population in Maxwell camp is about 1,000 people. The doors include bunk beds, with two people assigned to each cubicle.
  • 14.How would I assess safety in the facility? :The prison is very safe. Everyone just wants to get out.
  • 15.What types of pressure did I feel in the facility?:There isn’t any pressure. The new warden makes things laid back.
  • 16.What is my general review?:I’d give the federal prison camp in Maxwell a favorable review. It doesn’t have a weight pile, and the food could improve. But for the most part, it’s okay. That’s why I’m giving the prison a rating of an eight.
  • 17.On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give the facility a rating of:8
  • 18.Personal Blog:

  • 1. My name is:Michael Santos
  • 2. I arrived on:I never served time in the Federal prison camp in Montgomery, or Maxwell Federal Prison Camp
  • 3. I’m scheduled to leave on:I was released from federal prison, after 26 years, in August of 2013.
  • 4.My judge sentenced me to serve how many months? My judge sentenced me to serve 45 years.
  • 5. In the past, I’ve been confined at the following institutions:I served time in many different federal prisons. I started in United States Penitentiaries. Then I went to federal correctional institutions. I served time in four different federal prison camps, including Florence federal prison camp, Lompoc federal prison camp, Taft federal prison camp, and the Atwater federal prison camp.
  • 6. I was convicted of the following offense:I was convicted of charges related to the distribution of cocaine.
  • 7. Pros of the facility:I’m writing this review of Maxwell federal prison camp, or Montgomery federal prison camp, because I want readers to know what I heard. During the 26 years that I was in federal prison, I interviewed hundreds of federal prisoners. I interviewed them because I wanted to help others. I wanted to write stories and lessons and books that would help others get the best outcome. From interviewing those people, I learned a lot about different federal prisons. I learned about Maxwell. Other consistently described Maxwell as one of the best federal prison camps.
  • 8. Cons of the facility:The cons of the facility will have to do with a person’s attitude. If a person has a bad attitude, any prison will feel more difficult than necessary. And if a person hasn’t experienced other federal prisons, he won’t have any way of comparing a good prison from a bad prison.
  • 9.Food assessment of the facility:Prison food is not great, but some prisons offer better foods than other prisons. Another reviewer said that the food in Maxwell is bad. He may be right. I guess everything depends on what you value. If you value food, a person can get a job in the food service department. That guy could create opportunities to prepare his own food. The downside of working in food service may mean less free time. So it’s important to learn about the prison. Determine what is important. Then create a strategy to make the most of the journey.
  • 10.Recreational opportunities at the facility:A good running track means that an opportunity exists to stay fit. At least that is what I found. If a person can run, a person can feel free. I also did thousands of pushups each week while in prison. I could test myself. I could push myself harder. Those challenges helped me through the journey. Others can walk. Make sure that if you’re going to prison, you focus on fitness.

  • 11.Programs available in the facility:The federal prison camp in Montgomery will offer many opportunities for a growth. Rather than look for prison programs, become resourceful. Learn from others. It’s crucial to go into the prison with a plan. I used to interview people in prison. I would write their stories. I learned a great deal from that program I created for myself. It’s also possible to teach classes to others, either formally or informally. Make the most of a prison journey. Of course most people want to participate in the Residential Drug Abuse Program, or RDAP. They like RDAP because it leads to 18 months off the prison term. Yet people must qualify for RDAP before they surrender to prison, and many new prisoners do not take the effort to qualify.
  • 12.Best jobs in the facility:I would agree with the other reviewer who said that the best prison job is the prison job that offers the most freedom. Time is valuable. Use the time to make the most of the experience.
  • 13.Living Quarters in the facility:The other reviewer described 2-man cubicles in a large dormitory. That is a typical for most white-collar, federal prison camps. They’re open. I was in Lompoc Federal Prison Camp, which divided beds into columns and rows, without cubicles. Atwater was the same type of camp. That was not good. I preferred the two-man cubicles.
  • 14.How would I assess safety in the facility? :All camps are basically safe. I mean, people can avoid problems if they want to avoid problems. But if someone wants to act out, there are others who will erupt. For the most part, the federal prison camp life is easy except for being separated from family.
  • 15.What types of pressure did I feel in the facility?:Pressure comes from being separated from family.
  • 16.What is my general review?:My review is limited on what I heard from interviewing others, not from living in the federal prison camp in Maxwell. But FPC Montgomery has a good reputation.
  • 17.On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give the facility a rating of:8
