Family and community support is really important throughout the whole process. Family and friends are encouraged to remain in communication with their loved ones and further information is provided here on how to find out where your loved one is being held, how to communicate with them, how to send money and how to provide support at the time of sentencing.
If your loved one is detained, it is important to remember that all communications with that person is recorded and may be used against them in court, so it is best if family and friends refrain from discussing pending criminal charges with loved ones until the case has resolved. You may contact the attorney handling the case if you have further questions about this.
This information applies only to individuals held by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and if your loved one is not found on the inmate locator, please check with the attorney assigned to the case regarding where that individual is being held.
