Default new in austin

does anyone have any experience with the del valle state jail?
my husband was just sentenced with one year
but i hear state jail is day for day. he has done seven years in the past...
i didn't know him then.
so i know one year doesn't sound like alot
but it is for me
do they get two for one over there
if it's 'aggravated' i hear they do day for day
any info on state felonies is welcome
happy 2010
may this year be the one everyone comes home

Welcome to PTO. I don't know much about state jails, but I'm sure someone will come along shortly with good answers for you. You'll find a lot of supportive, knowledgeable people here at PTO. So glad you found us!

If I remeber correctly state is day for day and no parole since a state jail offense is the lowest felony possible. At least with him being in Del Valle, you will be given more privileges than if he went to TDCJ.

Hello there fellow Austinite and welcome!
No matter how long, being apart from your honey is hard. Let me know if you need anything, I live in ATX as well.
Unfortunately I have no clue about any State Jails but usually someone comes along who knows those places. Also, try the search function ...

At least you ladies got the window. I got the video phone that was the top of his head. Heaven forbid if he was shorter ( he is 6'1").

I think what I love about del valle was how easy it was to put money on his books.
