Don in Prison

Where is Don Siegelman, today?

On February 8, 2017, Don Siegelman was discharged from the Oakdale Federal Prison Facility.

In the winter of 2017, Don Siegelman was released from Oakdale Federal Prison through the Early Release Program to constricted house arrest. There he was closely supervised by BOP parole officers, with many of the same limits that he was under on the inside. In addition, he wore an ankle monitor. Don completed his “debt to society” in the Spring of 2019. His intermittent imprisonment lasted for over a decade, starting when he was first cuffed and shackled in Judge Mark Fuller’s courtroom in 2007.

The Political Prosecution successfully destroyed Siegelman’s career as a lawyer and a politician and put his family and friends through untold misery. The Prosecution was a modern, bloodless assassination.

HOW TO GIVE TO DON, NOW THAT HE IS OUT OF PRISON!

Now that Don is home 

There are many people still in prison who would love your friendship and support. There are many ways to give to friends and family in Prison. You may mail them cards and letters, have publishers send them books and subscriptions, or send them money. The rules are made to be followed and are a little complicated. This page makes those rules simpler, but do follow instructions carefully. See toggles below.

Money to Friend and Family’s Prison Commissary Account

While federal prisoners are not permitted to receive or possess currency, money is necessary in order to shop at the commissary, make prepaid phone calls, or use the e-mail system. Family, friends, or others deposit funds into the commissary account, from which your friend of family draws credits so they can buy the numerous items not provided by Oakdale prison.
