Via U.S. Postal Service: Inmates’ families and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of postal mail and have to send it to the following address and do so in accordance with the policies written below:

The money have to be in a money order made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number.

    My girlfriend and future wife is at. Mci-framingham right now. She got semtnback for
    A parole violation because she was taking caugh medicine that she did not tell her parole officer about. Anyway she has been back at mci for 3 days now and I have yet to receive a phone call from her. So u know they are withholding phone rights from her. I don’t know if this is something they do to all inmates returning for parole violations or if she got into trouble.
    From talking ti my girl 20 minutes a night for over a year I can say this. The jail dose not care about these woman and how they are destroying their lives. Especially woman like my girl who have hope for a better life. She has someone on the outside waiting to help them rebuild her life. But they make it almost imposable for me to see her and talk to her because of my past. I have a felony charge from 10 years ago. So I can’t even go see her. In the year she spent in jail they have not allowed her to go to work on work release. Released her to a sober house she could not afford and then put so many rules and restraints on her she could not find a good job. When she got a job that was willingnto work with her they told her she could have this job?. It feels as if they wanted her to fail.

  2. I visited my daughter there. It is very harsh. The guards can be mean. Even if she goes to the bathroom during a visit she has to be strip searched and her body cavities searched by a woman with rubber gloves. It seems like the most humiliating thing. The rules are tough and she had two appointments at once and got in trouble because she didn’t go to the medical appointment first. She was not feeling well and seemed like such a wounded soul with dark circles under her eyes. I told her to meditate or say the Rosary…which is a form of meditation…she needs to find out how to cope with this prison life. They all go to the shower together so there is no privacy, and a male guard can walk through the showers to check them…they say cover up…then a male guard walks through, and she has to ask for tampons from a male guard. I am worried for her mental and physical and spiritual health. If you visit during their dinner time at 4:30, she will have NOTHING to eat…unless you purchase a canteen card and buy the inmate a sandwich. I have read of women dying of overdoses in there, and guards leaving them on the floor, and of a woman committing suicide. I just don’t know if this kind of environment can help a person rehabilitate. Perhaps it will scare her straight. I am afraid for her life.

    • What your daughter described to you was extremely accurate….. Still to this day. I wish more family members would speak up. Short of that…. I don’t believe things will ever chang3.
