My sister in law is serving 60 months in the oregon dept of

My sister in law is serving 60 months in the oregon dept of corrections. She has servrd almost two years or more on this sentence. Well just this week she was sent back to the jackson county jail and is now on a federal hold for the same offenses. Shewas involved with some other addicts and they were stealing mail and trying to cash checks and stuff. This is a serious crime, i understand but shes got 5 kids, never really been in trouble before, just has always had a drug problem. But she got 5 years andshes serving it. My understanding is double jeopardy does not apply because the feds have the right to charge and convict even if the crime is the same. It still makes no sence to me. The convictions were for 1 agg id theft and 13 id theft. But shouldnt sheb sentenced in only one of the court systems? Not both consecutively, that really seems unethical, as well as cruel and unusual, not to mention it is double jeopardy, even if the feds try to throw a loophole out there to try and convict the same person forthe same crime twice. I believe sovereign is the term they used. Is there anything i can do to help my sister avoid fed time and just finish the 3 more years she has in state?

I am Carol Sylvia needing to find out or be directed in the

I am Carol Sylvia needing to find out or be directed in the right direction for my son that lives with me. My son has uncontrollable diabetic. He has served his time, been to rehab, going 3 times a wk. to a treatment center, once a month to a counselor in the same treatment, & to his DOC officer about once a month & within that time the Doc officer comes to our home. Jason was helping his ex wife to purchase a small trailer & she needed a ride. Because of his kind heart he did so. Well she had baggies of meth in her purse, a policeman was making his rounds, & of course checked on them. Well she had drugs in purse & hid some of them on her side of the vehicle. Of course they were arrested. She went to prison & my son to court every mo. for a yr. Well they would not let him defend himself in court & drew there own conclusions of what had happened & not quite the true story from the policemen. So my son public defender told my son he can appeal the drug charges for they were not his. So he did, corresponded with a attorney outside of our county. Meanwhile my son has been going to get his UA, he has a very bad bladder infection & urinating blood, the DOC officer was acting very diff towards me & my son, very cold never looked at us in the eye when head down. I could see his body language was so very diff from all the times we have been there. My son went in for his UA, he was told he did not pass it. My son was home with me where I could see him & took care of him for eight days bed ridden, with no visitors. Well they handcuffed him brought him to jail. I could not believe this was happening. So awhile back when DOC found out my son was appealing the drug charges he told him to be sure to drop it. So here is my son now in maxium security locked up in a very dirty room, he has to cather every six hrs, has to be clean. They forget to give him his insulin shots, the food is horrible, do not feed him very much, he goes into insulin coma s. Then in the newspaper there was a big right up on him about him losing the appeal & jeopardizing his character. I feel in my heart he is being framed for all this because he went ahead & continued the appeal which made them angry & now they are punishing him for trying to stick up for himself for the drugs were his ex wifes. He is my caretaker & he is not well, his Dr. said it is the worse place he can be because of his bad health. They are treating him very badly. I do not know where to turn nor what to do. I do not have extra funds to hire a good attorney, I am retired & on a fixed income. My son applied for disability 4 yrs. ago, now there is one more step on July 13 for an appt. that is the final step & the beg discussion. He has to go to Dr. appt. & suppose to go into the hospital this month. I called DOC to find out the outlook for time frame staying in Jail because of his appt. this mo. He never did return my two calls. Can you give me some good advice please. I am concerned about my son health & having no one to take care of me. Thank you for your time very much. Sincerely, ***** ***** Sylvia,***@******.*** Twisp, Wa.

My daughter is in prison and a few weeks ago she was put into

My daughter is in prison and a few weeks ago she was put into confinement because of a suppose fit which never happened the guards did not see anything but said her and her friend had scratches on them which was never documented by the nurse who looked at her. She was in confinement for 7 days while they investigated this suppose fight. Both girls wrote in there statements that there was no fight they were just talking loud and doing there laundry in the bathroom. So needless to say there were no witness to any of this. So they were not charged with anything. They were put in different dorms and one of the guards told my daughter to watch her p's and q's and he will be watching her. with all of this my daughter was very upset and when she went to phyc out for mental reasons the same guard denied her and told her to calm down or he will put he back in confinement and say that she kicked him and the other guard would contest to it. Needles to say she spoke to the assistant warden about it and he told her if she puts a grievance in they will put her into confinement for up to 180 days while they investigate it. So she declined. But the harassment is still happening now another guard has jumped on the ban wagon. and the warden will do nothing about it. what can i do about this and can they do what they did to begin with?
