Default Help?? How long before brother can call and visits approved?

I just wrote this a moment ago but thought I would be more specific. My brother got sentenced to 20 years in Friday and was sent to drdc today. Does anybody know how long it will be until he could make phone calls? Also, how long until the visits get approved? And lastly should I jeep putting money in his account while he is in drdc? Do they get commissary? Thank you in advance for helping me out! Sincerely Shauna

It takes about 3 weeks for his phone list to be approved. Don't bother to apply to visit at DRDC, they won't approve it before he's moved to his permanent facility. He will very likely transition through YOS or CTCF in a couple of weeks.

Yes they get canteen so keep putting money on his books. He's not allowed to take stamps, paper or envelopes with him from jail so he'll be starting out from scratch with that. He'll be given two stamps, 2 sheets of paper and 2 envelopes and then he'll have to wait to get anything else when he orders canteen. It's cheaper for him to order pre-paid phone time through canteen then to do collect calls.
