Default Transferred out of Victorville, but told he had to leave his pictures!?

I am in serious need of some guidance. my lo just transferred out of victorville
when he was leaving one of the LT' s told him he had to leave all his pics... he said it was to many out of an album.. it was all the pics of his kids. thought the years. that's the only way he has seen them, is through pics. needless to say now the LT is saying he doesn't know which ones are his. and he ain't trying to get it straight. what I need is does anyone know where I should go next with this...he is really FREAKED out and I don't know who to call. any help will be greatly appreciated.

I've never even heard of that before! If it was in his property he is entitled to that property. Typically what happens is they let them know what they will keep in their property and the rest is either thrown away or mailed out. I would call the prison and ask a worker there and see what they say. In the mean time send out the email to the prison and see what happens from that phone call in speaking with staff. ughhh this is so frustrating! I know with this past lock down they told my hubby he was only allowed so many things in his cell and property box and he had to pick which items to be shipped. He could only ship according to the money he had at the time so everything else was dumped...

I've never encountered a LT getting involved with property, it was always handled by R&D. "LT and photos of children" leads me to guess that his crime has something to do with underage pornography. He can file an inmate grievance, but it will most likely be denied. Whatever happens, leaving Victorville has to be a good thing.

Unless the LT confiscated the photos, he can take them to R&D with the rest of his property. Photos are allowed to transfer to a new prison under normal circumstances, so what he was told is very unusual.

Well let me lead your beliver to this what you just threw out there is a serious accusation. And it is not appropriated. It's nobody's business what he's doing time for we don't get on here and talk about that kind of thing. So plz keep you openion to your self. I didn't ask for it and further more don't want it. But you can be at ease it most definitely is not any kind of sick dhit like that.

I realize this is a year old thread, but PTO is huge and I've just come across it....In defense of fbopnomore, he said Nothing out of the way, nothing disrespectful, nothing that should have rankled anyone's feathers.

It isn't unusual for PTO to have loved ones of sex offenders, there are many of us. It also isn't unusual for the loved ones to not want to post specifics or (sometimes) even admit that their loved one is incarcerated for a sex offense. The first thing I thought when I read the OP was just that: that her lo is a sex offender - so's are sometimes not permitted to have pictures of minors, even of their own children.

That being said, I hope the Op's loved one was able to file a grievance and did have his pictures returned

I didn't think SO, but I did think the inmate had too many photos and was ordered to leave some behind.

The BoP has strict limits on the number of pictures one can have.

Yeah as a former federal inmate I had the same thoughts by reading the OP's post. They don't just take your pictures they would at least let you send them out. The comment about how do I even know if these are yours by the LT is what has some of us thinking he was a SO. In my experience I never saw anyone get in trouble for having too many pictures. I do believe when transfering they limit it to one photo album, but you can fit a ton of pictures into a photo album. And they would let you send the rest of them home. And then when he got to a new facility you could send them back in.
