Hello!
Any idea about the isolation cells? I am writing something and was hoping to know the description of Dooly's hole - food flap, lights on 24/7, things like that. Appreciate anyone's info. Thanks,

SueZQ

Hi,
My grandson is at Dooly. The questions you asked I don't know anything about them.
He doesn't complain when we visit. He doesn't want to talk about anything in the prison at all.
If you know anything I would love to hear.

My grandson was in the hole last month. according to him it is a 2 man cell, with the doors locked and store priviledges taken away. No TV.

Hi guys, I've got a penpal who's recently been moved to Dooly state prison and I was wondering if anyone knew the address for prisoners mail? I'm in Australia so this is all very foreign to me as our justice system is very different. If anyone had any information on what its like in Dooly or american jails in general I'd really appreciate it as well. Thanks heaps.

well i dont know if anyone has been to dooly yet or not, but my son actually lives there ( not in prison ) , there are no red lights in that town. it is very small, no grocery store, but there is a general store,gas station combined into one. and a dollar store. its a very mayberry town. but its a nice town.

I would call his counselor and ask, explain the situation

Not sure if they would allow "promise rings" but you can always try. Did he just get there? He gets to fill out a request form for personal items, I believe he can put a ring request in. He will get it approved, mail it to you. Then you can get the items on the list and mail them back. Tell him to talk to his counselor. Good luck.

I don't believe the prison would know the difference in a promise ring and a wedding band. On the form, I think it just says a ring... (although it may differ from prison to prison)... I wouldn't make a huge deal about it. Have him fill out the package request form, send it to him and have him wear it! :D Good luck!

I'm about to visit someone for the first time at Dooly State Prison. I was wondering how it worked... I'm nervous because I have never done anything like this before!

Have you checked to see if there were any other hotels in the area. The next closest city would be Warner Robbins.

There is a best western (I think thats the name) across the street from the travelodge. I just like the area and its seems more close to the prison. Its on the same exit. Try there and see.

Yes the same exit. Right across the street from the travel lodge. Im not sure of the name but I think its best western. I have never stayed there alway the travel lodge. And every where else that is close to the prison seems run down.

Whatever you do, do not stay at the Scottish Inn! OMG! My best friend went down with me for my last visit and he wanted to sleep while I visited so he got a room there and they are freakishly nasty! I am just glad all I had to do in that room was fix my hair and go! Lol.
