I highly doubt it. That doesn't sound legal.

the new info. is that gov. rendell lifted the parole on the non violent offenders only, and that the hold is still on and under investigation for the violent offenders. Hopefully things will go back to normal soon. My son too will come up for release in Dec. if his parole is granted. He did meet with the parole board, but is waiting for the GREEN sheet and Rendell's decision on the violent offenders..Hopefully God will be their judge and not some man who might not be having a good day himself...

I just visited houtzdale prison yesterday ( nov. 10th ) I was told by the C.O. that NO one has been released from there as of yet not even the non- violent offenders that have their green sheets and were avaiting release pending the lifting that Rendell impended..I was told that the counselors and the unit managers were being moved out of their offices to make dorms for the inmates because of overcrouding..WHY AREN'T THE PRISON RELEASING THE INMATES AS THEY WERE INSTRUCTED??? IS IT THAT THEY ARE NOT INFORMED AND UP TO DATE WITH THE NEWS...WHATS UP??? COME ON PRISON EMPLOYEES DO YOUR JOB AND FILL OUT YOUR NECESSARY PAAPERWORK TO RELEASE OUR LOVED ONES THAT HAVE EARNED THEIR FREEDOM...

i can uderstand holding inmates who has been charged with a violent crime because it makes no sence to rob, kill, and hurt people. but to those who are in for drug cases ect. ect. iI think they should be given another chance to start over and try to make money leagally. So I think that the govener made a good decicion, but they have to let the those who have non-violent cases go home as scheduled because the prisons are over crowding and that can cause problems, where as though inmates can start to provoke problems which cam lead to an non violent inmate to commit a violent crime while incarserated, and it could be a case where they were just protecting theirselves.So i just hope they let those go home who is suppose to be,if they are an non violent case.

Kelly - Arrived for a visit Mon morning from 2 1/2 hrs away, only to be told that they have been on lock-down since Friday. Any news on why, or how long it will last. Do you think we'll be able to visit Thurs? Are they not allowed phone calls during lock down. Missing my fiance --- Linda

Thanks Maggie and Kelly. I'll def start doing the "call ahead" thing. My guy did get to call last night. He said it was "gang wars," and they had to make sure all who might continue the fights were "in the hole." We suffer right along with them, when these things happen ----- Linda

of course the fight was gang related ~ they are in prison and the gangs run all ~ its scary from what i have seen it makes the men more feared but the cos watch them so much closer ~
