A look at the non-traditional prison where Kim Potter is placed

Unread post by uncledad »

Kim Potter, 49, was led away in handcuffs and ordered to be held without bail ahead of her sentencing in February after being found guilty on all counts at Hennepin County Court on Thursday.

She was then transferred to Minnesota Correctional Facility - Shakopee, a five-level security prison located about 25 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis.

The facility cares for about 650 female prisoners and offers a variety of in-prison programs designed to help in rehabilitation, according to Prison Fellowship. The inmates are invited to participate in a 5K runs, further their education and grow their relationship with God.

Female prisoners have specific needs that differ from their male counterparts, and Warden Beltz is an advocate for gender-responsive programming in corrections. The women here at Shakopee have access to a variety of in-prison programming designed to help in rehabilitation. Programs like the Prison Fellowship Academy®, run by Prison Fellowship® staff and local volunteers.

Located in select prisons across America, the Academy takes men and women through classes that use evidence-based practices, proven curricula, and strong biblical foundations to tackle the roots of criminal behavior. Participants are guided by Prison Fellowship staff and volunteers to lead lives of purpose and productivity inside and outside of prison.

In the 1980s I taught a course for the inmates at that prison.

My most vivid memory of the class was that I had made a joke about a true story that the dead body of a drug dealer had been found in the trunk of an abandoned car at the Minneapolis Airport. One of the best students in class got up and stormed out of the class and slammed the door as she left. After next week's class I asked her what had been wrong. She told me that the dead drug dealer in the trunk was her boyfriend.
