I have a son who transferred down there recently, like two days ago, my experience in corresponding with him and trying to find the right phone company so he can keep in touch with his family has been a nightmare, I still have not been able to set up that service, I have been transferred to several different companies and neither one of them serviced or did they know who serviced that facility, I have a $100.00 floating around in cyber space to place on a prepaid card service that is blocked. Can't even find the facility and address on the internet, only news articles such as this one, to have one of your loved ones so far away and not be able to communicate is devastating.

I have an uncle there. And it's been the worst thing ever. During in take transfering form AZ to COl he was beat up by 8 guys. Almost took his life. COl seems to lost the tapes and knows nothing now. Through him in segration (THE HOLE) He was unable to contact Our family,for several days. my grandmother has been trying to get to the bottom of this and they keep giving her the run around no one knows nothing. They don't even know how the phone lines work. This is reduclis and they need to striaghten everything out!!!! Why is he sitting in the HOLE if he did nothing and he has to sit there for 23 hours for his safty when they could send him out to an other correctional center and keep the people that need to be back there back there. So they need to get it straightn out before I freak out and it will be for nothing because they are jsut going to say the same thing I know nothing.

He must be in there with my son, who told me the same thing. That his friend was beat up by a bunch of others and the tape was lost. He said he didn't know the address, and to get it online. Not finding it here. My mother and I also sent him money for Christmas, that seams to be lost someplace also. Not a very good holiday for our family to be objected to.

Hey guys. Ive had a lot of trouble trying to keep my fiance in contact with me down there also. Non of the phone companies have contracts with Alaska and one even told me 'they dont take Alaska credit/debit cards'. Which is bizzar because they have OUR inmates! But I guess you have to deal with the hand your dealt right. The easiest thing Ive had work so far is i sent him a money order(from the post office) and mailed it to the jail(Hudson Correctional Facility) their address is :

HUDSON CORRECTIONAL FACILITY
3001 N. JUNIPER ST.
COUNTY RD. 45
HUDSON CO 80642

then after I did that he got ahold of me and gave me an 800 number to call and I can put money on his books straight from my CC or debit card. They give you a confirmation code and everything and it goes on their account at the jail in literally MINTUES. I will get that number when he calls tomorrow and i will post is on here just to help anyone else who is interested! thats all i have for now though. its horrible how they already take them from us and now take them even FURTHER. Funny how the biggest state in America has to send ppl out of it because we dont have "room"...take care all!

Say I know someone there too and I hope they will"lose tapes" on him too! He doesn't deserve to be in contact with the outside world for what he did.

This place is terrible. My man has also been placed in the hole. They haven't bothered to investigate him any further. They have just left him in there. I have been to visit and everytime I have made the trip there is always a new policy. IE: the type of visit he is allowed, contact or no contact, handcuffed or not handcuffed, we have experienced them all. A daily changing policy. How can the guys even know what the rules are if they keep changing? The mail.. they are now holding and it is taken up to a month to receive letters. There is so much more..I have tried calling the warden, but he apparently is too busy making up "The Policy of the Day" to talk. My man is being treated unjust and I plan on loudly fighting for him!

I know someone there to... haven't been able to keep in contact with him either. I've wrote many letters and he never writes back. Come to find out he was never even getting my letters. There are some many people fussing about this place where our family and friends have been transfered too...something isn't right with Hudson Correctional....

there certainly is some bad stuff going on in hudson. cell doors left open, a riot. an inmate from Ak dies in his cell and no one knows any
thing about it WTF is up with that.if they cant keep our AK prisoners safe in there own facility
why do we send them there. do the guards there even under go backgroung check ? apparently not.
i am not saying the prisoners are good guys, just saying they are human and have families.

Has anyone heard anything more on this place? Like why the inmates or certain inmates weren't recieving their letters. About the riot that happen there, is there a way for me to find out who was hurt or who were the people that were doing the harm? I know someone in there...just wondering if he's ok? His name is Kenneth Lehrman.
