Default Red Onion Prison - Information

Hey , I thought I would create a thread for Red Onion , I know there is a lot of cloudy opinions on Red Onion but its not as bad as people think , I went to visit there last weekend and the staff are friendly and visitation was longer than expected. My LO was transferred there from WR after a long battle of abuse of power from WR and us taking legal action.
Some things to know
Local Hotels : Norton - Super 8 approx $60 a night ( 20 Mins from WRSP and 30 mins from ROSP )
Dress Code : Do not wear Burgundy , green ( this is what the inmates wear on visitation ) & orange - as long as your conservative then you should be good to get in , same rules still apply as per the VADOC dress code but they are not as strict as some say.
Staff are really friendly , even the Warden showed his face at the visit and the manners of people over the phone is so much more pofessional.
Visitation is from 9am - 3.30pm , if your visit is cut short the inmates have to sit there until the rest of the visits are finished.
Any other questions please just drop me a message.

PS Red Onion are due the Annual lockdown very soon
