Default What Alabama Prison are they in?

My husband has recently been sentenced to Alabama state prison. I learned that at first everyone goes to Kilby Correctional Facility where they are evaluated and then sent to the prison where they will actually serve their time. I was wondering what Alabama prisons you guys know about. Which ones are good, or bad, which ones have better classes and more for the inmate to do.. these sort of things. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

My husband was at Kilby, Ventress, and now he is at Farquhar Cattle ranch. My husband wants to come home, so he stays to himself and minds his own business. We haven't had any problems with either of the 3 prisons.....He also took some classes at Ventress and graduated which helped him get moved from a level 2 medium security inmate to a level 1 minimum security inmate and he was transferred to a minimum security prison. He likes it there alot more.....hope this helps!

Have him be very careful at THE CATTLE RANCH, my hubby was there, there was dirty doings going on there and when they got caught sent 6 men back to BIBB for not snitching, including my husband, now hes at Ventress. Went from NO writeups in 4yrs to 4 in less than 10mts, lost a year of good time...shady place.... Good luck

My husband is at Donaldson in West Jefferson.. I too hate it also.. We need more wives and family members to support our loved ones to the fullest ,that is incarcerated at Donaldson. Yes, some are responsible for their bids and some are not, which they were convicted wrongly. Even though the ones that have Life with possibility of parole and the ones that has Life without a possibility, they still needs our support more..Letters..visits..packages etc.Let them know that they are still worthy,even though. Lets not throw our love ones away; Even if not a wife or a family member..A friend could make a difference in a persons life when they are down. God did not give up on us,so why we are giving up on them. Rehabilitation ,helps when you know that someone cares..Once again, Support our mens that is incarcerated at William E. Donaldson Correction Facility. We need to know how they are and what is going on in the inside.. Not making them comfortable,just supporting them mentally and giving them hope.

My boyfriend is in Draper right now but hopefully moving soon. The people there are really nice though. When he was at Bibb he hated it. He has been locked up for 16 years so, he has made his way to almost everyone of them except Holman
