Once Fallen's Informational CorrLinks Newsletter (The ICoN)
About the ICoN
The Informational CorrLinks Newsletter (aka ICoN) is a FREE, text-only newsletter that can be sent to inmates who have access
to CorrLinks, an email system currently used in federal prisons as well as some state prisons in Iowa, Oklahoma, and Minnesota.
Corrlinks does not allow people to send PDF files or pictures, and has a 13,000 CHARACTER (not word, but letter, number,
punctuation and space count), making traditional newsletters difficult to send via emails. This is why Once Fallen has worked, in
cooperation with inmates who have access to CorrLinks, to create a newsletter with CorrLinks users specifically in mind.
Inside the ICoN
The ICoN's mission is to keep incarcerated "sex offenders" informed of important news and other information related to treatment
and about the laws the may face upon reentry into society. These are the kinds of articles you'll find in the newsletter:
In addition, Once Fallen will answer inmate inquiries and offer some information whenever possible. Once Fallen DOES NOT
provide attorney services for appeals/ lawyer referrals/ legal aid/ sentencing issues or people finder/ penpal/ mail forwarding
functions, but will try to assist inmates in obtaining useful info as much as possible. Due to limited resources, I suggest downloading
back issues and sending them to loved ones rather than request I send them info to save on time and costs.
HOW TO GET THE ICoN
CorrLinks users can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to automatically receive new ICoNs once they are
released. I no longer offer back-issue service via Corrlinks, however. I suggest consolidated volumes for back issues in a more
convenient format, but are only offered through the mail.
Please note that the ICoN is a text-only newsletter which is optimized for easy cut-and-paste, and will always be less than 13,000
characters in length (that is roughly three to four pages). Thus, those who have loved ones with access to other email services can
easily cut-and-paste this info may be able to receive the ICoN as well.
ICoN USE POLICY & COSTS
The ICoN is intellectual property of Once Fallen (Derek W. Logue) and the use of the newsletter is intended for personal, non-
commercial use (i.e., any use except for-profit publication). Thus, intended to be freely disseminated to anyone who wants a copy.
Once Fallen DOES NOT CHARGE for the electronic version of ICoN, so let us know if any organization or person is charging for
this newsletter (outside cost of paper and postage).
However, Once Fallen WILL request compensation for any requests for information by mail, as it costs money for paper and
postage. Generally, I merely ask inmates with requests send a self-addressed, stamped envelope and expect to wait 4-6 weeks for
any special requests by mail. See my CONTACT ME page for my contact info.
POPULAR EXTERNAL WEBSITE SERVICES
If you were sent to this page from an inmate seeking specific resources, the most popular requested resources not offered by
OnceFallen are listed below. I have covered US Territories in the Consolidated ICoN Vol. 4, see below. I print copies of the Relief
From the Registry and th Registry/ Residency Laws spreadsheets at a cost of two stamps per spreadsheet. If you print them
yourself, I suggest you set your printer to double-sided printing and "Fit to Page" to save space.
All issues of the ICoN will be posted here. Feel free to download them and share them. The print versions are in .docx format (i.e.,

|NOTICE REGARDING ICON'S EXTERNAL RESOURCE LISTS
At the end of pat ICoNs, I added a resource list. As of July 2018, I am removing the list from newsletters because some
resources are banned from prisons and even the ICoN can be rejected just by mentioning the other resources. The
resource list will now be found only in my Intro to the ICoN ("Volume 0"), and I will be altering downloads on this page to
reflect the changes. Sorry for the inconvenience.
