Default Baskerville

Hello!

My husband is at Augusta Correctional Center right now. However, he is trying to get moved to Baskerville (I believe it's called) next year because he qualifies for a 1 high. Does anyone know anything about Baskerville? How is the visitation and so forth? All info will be greatly appreciated...

My husband was just moved to Lawrenceville Correctional Center which is about 6 hours away. We (my daughter & I) went to see him for the first time since he was moved there the trip was long, my daughter and I were exhausted and after a 6 hour drive and a two hour wait in line we finally got a one hour visit...no extended visits due to the crowd this past weekend. I hated it...to drive so far with a 1 1/2 year old only to have to turn around and drive back home after visiting for only an hour. We couldn't afford a motel and will be lucky if we can afford the gas to go see him once a month instead of what was weekly visits. Why does the DOC move your loved ones so far away? ARGH!!!

My baby is in Lunenburg, can anyone please tell me about this place. I have to travel from Charlottesville to Victoria just to see him. Are they strict on visits and dress codes for visits?

Well, David has managed to end up back at the Fairfax Co Adult Detention Center AGAIN. Another year and a 1/2. Will he ever learn?

Hi, Im new at this, so I hope this is right. My son is at Lunenburg. He was transfered there from Lawrenceville which was ok. I haven"t visited there yet & probably wont since he'll be home in 5 months after a 51 month sentence. Its been a long haul. Sorry I only found this site a few weeks ago & its been great reading about all of your loved ones & knowing theres people out there just like me.

My boyfriend left Lawrenceville nearly two years ago, he moved down the street to Brunswick. Nothing has currently changed regarding SB805 for the good conduct allowance. The 2006 session convenes on January 11th! Hopefully since Virginia has this new governor we can get this passed. It was passed to a committee for review. Let's all pray because this will be a blessing for many! Best of luck to you.

They moved my hubby to Deep Meadow today. Ugggggg! Now I have to travel 3 1/2 hours one way instead of 1 1/2. Anyone know the best way to get there from 81 South? I'm coming from WV.

Keith was in Henrico Regional Jail East but now he's being moved to a DOC location starting yesterday. No one I've talked to knows anything about where he's going or how long it might take to even talk to him again. What is the "average" time that it takes to go thru medical & classification? And are thongs ok to wear at visits?

Wish i only had 5-6 hours of driving. I drive 10 hours one way for a 1 hour visit it sucks~! but now we are in the process of getting him transfered to my state. And i know he will be treated better to. Nothing bad, but I dont care for any of the centers in VA I think the DOC and guards and such play games with these peoples minds and makes them feel belittled. It is sick. Happy Holidays everyone!

At Brunswick the inmates where jeans so visitors are not allowed to wear denim blue period. I have never been asked if I have a thong on. It may all depend on where he is located.

well, I've just found out that he's been transferred to the Mecklenburg center but I still don't know about wearing a thong.....they've only told me that I will be strip searched and can't wear any shirts or pants/skirts/dresses that are too revealing. Also what is up with the phone calls?........ I don't understand what's going on & why MCI has to call me three times a day for five days before I get to talk to him. I just hope that I;ll be able to see him this weekend since everything I've heard about Mecklenburg sounds bad. I've seen him every Saturday since he's been sentenced in July and had everything setup just right for him at the regional jail. I could put money on his books every week and knew that he would have enough for necessities plus some extra stuff. I've gotten him setup to receive magazines. Plus he had not only a job but a class and was a tutor for another class at the jail. I just feel so frustrated from all this mainly cuz I was told by DOC and the jail that he wouldn't be moved cuz he's got a work release date. I'm sorry if I'm venting but I haven't been able to talk with anyone about this and have been getting know where with the powers to be. If anyone here has any info on what to expect, please let me know.

ive never been asked about having on a thong but
as far as MCI that is what the recording says when he is trying to add you to his list
just follow the prompts and you will be added
if you have done this and he cant get through you may want to call mic and ask them to check if you have a block (this could be for a great amount of different reasons)
make sure to change the address on the magazines i had to do the same when Man was transferred

Mecklengberg only pats down, or used too. They will turn you away if your skirt is too short (they use a ruler) and if they find you wearing a thong. I was turned away for a pair of skorts after a 4 1/2 hour drive. I had to go to Walmart a couple of miles away and buy shorts. Also if you wear a sweater or coat into the visiting room you must keep it on even if you get hot. I have never been strip searched, but they can if they want. Dress conservatively and you should be ok.

Thanks so much for both of you helping with this. It's just been so overwhelming to found out how lazy & corrupt this state's system really is.

I forgot to mention that they have vending machines, so take change (not bills). You may be able to put it in a clear ziplock or small clear bag. I never tried that there, but I know coffeewood allowed us to use anything clear. I had a small clear makeup bag. Call and ask them.
