try geting in touch with prisoner assistance.org but I don't think so, because county is just for people whose bid is a year of less. Anything over a year they go upstate to one of the correctional facilities. Paula

I know ppl will probably get irritated with me...buut just curious...why get married in a county jail? I mean...I can understand when your bf has a longer prison sentence...but less then a year? Wouldn't it be better to spend that year or less planning a wedding on the outside? Or do you just want to get married before he goes to prison? If you really want to know, I'd call the jail where he's at. Ok I'm done..dont kill me please :)
