Resentenced to Danbury FCI/FPC

Donna and Jill have both been resentenced and are currently incarcerated at Danbury Federal Corrections Institute (FCI) in the Federal Prison Camp (FPC) section. Visiting and contact information has been updated and will continue to be updated in the coming weeks. Sending money still functions the same way so the instructions on this website from 2014 are still valid and accurate. The phone system and email system (CorrLinks) also function the same as they did when Donna and Jill were at Alderson FPC.


Great news!

The court has issued an order for immediate release pending appeal. The court document can be found here:

Update: 5/6/2014 10:45AM EST
The court did not rule immediately on the motion for bail (this is not typical, usually the court will immediately rule). The ruling should come quickly, as early as this afternoon but possibly in a few days. A notice will be posted as soon as news arrives.

Our bail motion will be heard in the 2nd circuit court of appeals on Tuesday, May 6th at 10am.
