Default What is Norfolk like?

Hello all,

My dad is sentenced to 5 years without parole. What is Norfolk like? He hears from people that there's a store that you can buy stuff and not have to wait, is that true? Inmates can buy meat/produce and cook it themselves?

Is it 2 people per a room with upper and lower bunk?

How strict is it? Can inmates go anywhere they want throughout the day or is there a schedule to follow like in Walpole?

Are there a lot of Chinese/Asian people there? My father is old, 56 years old and keeps to himself, are there gangs there that will try to start trouble with him if he doesn't?

If anyone has been in there and can share what it's like and how recent that would be so helpful.

Thank you!

I was wondering if you ever found any answers to your question? I'm curious myself. I haven't been able to find anything positive through my google searches. Thank you in advance.

Norfolk is not bad, as places go. Yes, the inmates have the opportunity to cook. Some have single cells. They can buy things I've never heard of other states allowing - like a fan for your room, a guitar, typewriter... they can correspond electronically through corrlinks for a quarter an email. There's the option to get your picture taken most Fridays so you have it to send to family/friends.
