If you are not in a hurry to "set up" phone service, just write to him and tell him to call you. Accept the charges and they will appear on your next phone bill. It's a dollar to connect and a dime a minute. You can send him money after he sends you a deposit slip. You will need the deposit slip and a money order. It tells you on the deposit slip to send it to an address in Jefferson City. Read the instructions on the deposit slip carefully. Sorry, can't answer your next question.

Don't send magazines or books. They can only have the materials that they themselves send away for.

That is so weird. I sent a mystery book to my guy. I went to Barnes and Noble and they ordered it direct from the warehouse to be sent to him. When it arrived at SECC they would not let him have it and told him he had two choices: send it back or donate it to the prison library. I used to be able to send materials to him when he was at the Justice Center, but SECC won't allow it.

Default treatment after being transferred

my dad just got transferred to Bonne Terre. He was in honors status when he left the other prison. he is being held in the hole with nothing but underwear and socks.
My mom is really upset that he has to stay in bed to stay warm.
He is upset because he doesn't have his bible and rosary.
How long will it be before he can have his personal things again? How long is the transition period before he gets assigned to a housing unit?
I was just wondering if anyone had any info.
thanks.

My son was sent to Bonne Terre 3 weeks ago, so he is in the reception area for 30-60 days. When he was transferred there they took everything thing he had ( actually just in todays mail I received a box from ERDCC, which had a nasty t-shirt, a pair of socks, & a pair of boxer underware, (they were so dingy ), his bible & scriptures ).
My understanding on the "prison side" they are full, so I have no idea how long it will be before he is assigned to his housing. I suggest calling them @ 573-358-4412 . They have always answered all the questions I've had every time I call.
Why would they put him in the hole when he was just transferred?
I wish him the best of luck, if I can help in any way, feel free to PM me.

My Son Got tranfered to St. Lousi Community Release center Does anyone know anything about This Place, Is It Safe. I am So Worried Becaue I Have Heard Things Like Other Prisoners would start fights, They can come and go as they please, I heard that they bring drugs in there and hide it in other people"s rooms without the other person knowing it so that person gets into trouble, For The Other Person, If They Say It Wasn"t Their The The Person That It Belongs To Would Beat The Person That Told Up. So Many Other Things , Are They Any Place He Can go That He Can Feel Safe So That He Can Stay Out Of Trouble. All He Wants To Do Is Get A Job And Get On With Job, But Its So Hard If These People Are Going To Bring Him Down., He Wasnts To Save Up So He Can Get His Own Place. Do You Know Of A Place He Can Go That Is Better Even If He Has To Pay.

I sent from Barnes and Noble but they told my guy he either had to send it back or donate it to the prison library. Why? Because he hadn't ordered it himself.

Default New to this kind of thing.

My boyfriend has been in Fulton for about 2 months now, he got sent to the hole, and I was told they don't get their tablets in the hole. But that they print off emails and take them and bring them to them? I have been writing letters, each day since he went there, but sent emails too, just wasn't sure if he would get the emails or not?
