  • Hi my name is Dawn I am new to all of this. I need some info on Huntsville Prison. My boyfriend Daniel was recently expidited from Florida to Texas to Huntsville. It was for a Parole Violation from 1998. I'm scared to think they may give him all the time he owes. No one in the prison system can seem to give me an answer so I figured I would come to the people who are basically in the same shoes or close to it. So can someone please help me or just let me know the steps I can take.

    Does anyone know how long after they complete their rehab program at Kyle unit it will take for an inmate to come home. My nephew completed his program on March 16th and his certification was accepted on March 3rd, 2009. They (huntsville) said it can take anywhere from 7-21 business days to issue out the release date? Does that mean they come at the end of 21 days if the release date hasn't already been issued? I'm confused as to how this works... HELP!!!!:confused:

I ask because I do find my guy, and Boyd is listed, but they don't give me the same address as what he told me to write him (Jpay tells me Route 2 Box 500 instead of 200 Spur 113). It confuses me.

Please post any personal experiences you have had, or have seen, regarding these machines. I know they aren't in all prisons in all states, so please post the state your experience was in also.

  • As requested by this thread. (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=630620) I work in the military's only maximum security prison. My responsibilities include conducting an initial mental heath assessment and a risk assessment for new inmates sentenced to the USDB. As per my leadership, there are two types of questions I cannot answer:

    1. Specific information about an inmate. (If you ask me is PVT Snuffy inside my prison, I cannot answer that)

    2. Details abou

  • I think someone should start a petition on first-time drug charges going to prison. I think that some people get into more trouble than they could have expected.

    They should be given an automatic chance on probation with some type of class that has to be taken as well, instead of being thrown in prison for 2-10 years or more!

    If you agree please post here. If you know anything about trying to change the law in US please let me know!

  • Today marks the beginning of a second special session of the Texas Legislature called by Republican Gov. Rick Perry to get a bill passed that would place extreme restrictions on a woman's right to choose, including new "standards" that would effectively cut down the state's abortion clinics from 42 to 5.

Any information of when, why and what they do on lock downs will help other members be aware of what is going on.

  • I read in the "grits for Breakfast" newsletter on the internet this morning that because of the severe shortage of guards at this unit, more inmates will be transferred sometime in the next few weeks.
    When will this all end? This is hard on the inmates and their famlies.
    The Texas Board of Parole and Pardons should get off their seats and do their jobs. A lot of inmates come up for several times to be reviewed to be released, and the Board keep setting them off. This is so sad,

  • Can someone please help me or give me a clue to what might be going on. My son was in SAFP Jester 1 unit. They moved him to Jester 3 and now he has no privileges. No one will tell me anything. Who do I talk to at the prison to find out why they moved my boy and what has happened. He is 600 miles away from where I live and I am completely lost at what is going on. If someone else out there has experienced similar situations with Jester, I would appreciate your help and advice. God bless. Lenora
