Default Letters from tdc to lew sterret?

i have a question my hubby is in tdc now but i just received a letter from him today asking me to help him get his friend's bookin number and address from lew sterret since he wants to keep in touch with him. they were cellmates and became really good friends while he was in county and since his friend doesn't have family here my husband wants to keep intouch with him but i'm not sure if they can write each other from tdc to county, does any body know if this is allowed or would he get introuble?

They can't write from TDC to TDC, but I have never heard any about from TDC to County. I don't see any reason why they couldn't. I would say let him try it. The worst that will happen most likely is that the county might refuse it? But I doubt TDC is going to care, if they di care they will just not mail the letter and return it to him stamped unauthorized.

Tdc used to not care, an I know for sure tarrant county doesnt care. But back in the fall several inmates in tarrant county were getting their letters returned to them by tdc saying it was unauthorized inmate/inmate correspondence.
