With over 80,000 individuals entering Federal Prison each year, and more than that awaiting trial or sentencing, is it any wonder that there are a lot of first time offenders out there who are anxious and filled with questions and doubt?
They may be wondering:
• What is Federal Prison going to be like?
• Am I going to be safe?
• What should I be doing to prepare?
I spent over five years in Federal Prison and based on my experience, I want to share with you what actions can you take NOW, before going to prison, that will help your transition from the outside world to life inside.
The first thing you want to do is choose someone, usually a family member or close friend, and give them power-of-attorney over your affairs. This person can then make decisions for you while you are in prison.
