Ouachita unit is the intake unit that every inmate has to come to enter the department of corrections. He'll probably only be there for a couple of weeks and then they will probably transfer him to another unit. Which would be his parent unit.

We haven't got to hear from him yet so we don't know what is going on. But he was in County for a little over a month before they transferred him.

thank you for your response. It's been almost 3 weeks for us so far, and nothing yet.

Yeah it took forever, but at least we got to see him, now he is 4 hours away and we haven't heard from him since the 11th. They told us that intake could take up to 60 days and then if they go to boot camp they can't have visitors until they reach a certain level and they say that is almost at graduation. Also was told that in boot camp they do not get phone calls only letters. So looking at a minimum of 135 days of only contact through mail.

My fiance got transferred to this intake unit Friday morning. It's Sunday morning and I still haven't been able to hear from him. I talked to him everyday at least twice a day while he was in county. Its been so hard on me and our kids.. How long was it before you were able to talk to your brother? Can he receive mail there? This is my first time thru this and appreciate any help. He is serving a 6 month parole violation sentence.
