My husband is in the Connally unit. He has been there going on 10 years. It has its ups and downs like any other unit. The guards have mood swings, one time they are nice the next on a tear. There is alot of gang activity and racial tension on this unit also. If they keep to themselves they will be ok. This unit also stays on lock down a lot so call before you go down. a_coleman is another Connaly wife and ca ntell you some more also. Hope this helps.

IMAN, This entire legal system is all about MOOD SWINGS! It makes me sick. If the Judge is in a good mood the out comes will be good, if the attorney is in a good mood he will work hard on your case. If the guards are in a good mood they will treat the imates well, if the Parole board is in a good mood the out comes will also be good. WILL SOMEONE SEND THE TEXAS LEGAL SYSTEM SOME PROZAC!! I am so sick of hearing about their damn mood swings! Sorry, I had to vent...<wink>

From Dallas, or from Houston. =)

My husband is at the connally unit and has been there for 14 years. It's a pretty good unit but they do lockdown a lot. It seems when there's tension at the units in Beeville, Conally goes down too and yes, there is a lot of racial tension there. Always, always call before you go down there. They usually have visits when they are on lockdown but sometimes they don't. When he called the other night, he said there was a fight on the other side from where he is and he thought they might go on lockdown but as of last night, they weren't so hopefully they won't. The guards are usually pretty good but again, it depends on the day. When I was down there last month I thought the CO would get a tape measure out to make sure that I was exactly straight across from him, other times, they don't care so much as long as you're not sitting on his lap. LOL! As long as he keeps to himself he'll be okay. I live in Weatherford and I go down there about once a month. I'm going this coming weekend. I get the Saturday and Sunday 4 hour visits each day. Since you will be coming from Dallas you would too. If you're interested or have any questions, let me know. I've been doing this for a while. We also need to call and keep on them about pictures, they only seem to want to do it when families complain. I've been calling every other day for a couple of weeks.

I called & asked about pictures. They did it the 1st weekend of march & then the printer was jamming up again. Thats why they havent been doing it because the printer jams & messes up. But I talked to the wardens office & she said they are gonna HOPEFULLY TRY and use it for Easter weekend.

Thanks for letting me know, that's pretty much they've been telling me. I'm going down there this weekend and I'll be asking then too.
