Talking North Central

Just updating here. Shane got sent from Oakdale to Rockwell City on Feb. 8th. We got our first visit and picture taken together on the 19th. It went great! I'm ready to make the 4 and a half hour trip again next week!

My 20 yo son was sentenced to 90-day shock in January. The judge recommended he stay at Oakdale because he's insulin-dependent and depressed. I just found out tonight he's been moved to Fort Dodge. It's all pretty scary.

Question Prison ministry question

Can you tell me more about the prison ministry in Newton? I heard this can cut back on some of their sentence, is that true??

Chritstine, I sure hope all is well with your loved ones eye. When I first read Ft. Madison, my stomach dropped to the floor. A young man (18) that I know is at ISP. I did not know there was a (what did you call it?) critical care unit.

My husband is in Clarinda and won't be home until 6 of 2008. I have a 5 1/2 drive to visit and would love all the support I can get.

Hello I am new to this site. My mom just got sentanced today for i believe it was 5-10 months. Im not quite sure really. I dont understand all that stuff. I am going to visit her tomorrow at the woodbury county jail hopefully she wont be gone before i get there. But she is on her way to oakdale, then to mitchellville. this is her 3-4 time going. I have never been to see her while she was there. Normally i dont let her get into mylife. She is My mother and she will always be my mother. I just get tired of being hurt by her. But needless to say this time I let her in. I dont regret any of it. I love her with all my heart. she is not only my mother she is my best friend. I have my daughter on March 24, 2004 and mom got out of prison on March 25th 2004. One day after she was born. so she has been in my daughters life this whole past year. She knows her and loves her as grandma. So needless to say I plan on visiting my mother at least once a month if i could. Mitchellville is 4 hours away from sioux city. So i Dont know how well my daughter will do in a car for that long. LOL... but im sure going to try. So needless to say to answer the question to this forum My mother is on her way to oakdale with in the next few days. Then to mitchellville.

I'm told they do check on the #'s just like they do checks on people visiting. I think it's silly, not being able to call a cell #.
How do you know or what do you know about cell phones? The only phone I have is a cell and my husband calls it whenever he calls?? He has never said or been told about calling it as far as I know..

On the phone form, which you send your phone money with it stays at the bottom. "Keep in mind that calls to toll free numbers, 900 numbers and cellular numbers are prohibited." Taken From http://www.doc.state.ia.us/PrePaidServiceForm.asp

My Mom also calls my cell phone from time to time when Im not home. I dont think they check the numbers that well because why would they allow someone in prison to call a bar. When My mom went back this time she had 30 some numbers on her account that she didnt know who they were. so she sent me the form with the numbers I of course searched them online and 3 of the numbers were bars here in town. I was mad when I found that out. But what can I do. So anyways she hasent been cought this time or the past times shes been in.

I have never heard of them not being able to call cell phones. My understanding is as long as you use your cell phone as your home phone it is no problem. My Dad was in Oakdale, Mt. Pleasant, and Rockwell City and I have good friends in Ft. Dodge and Ft. Madison and none of them have any troubles calling a cell phone. When my Dad was paroled the first time he could even live with me even if we only had a cell phone because that was the "home phone".

Well my boyfriend was told he would probably go to Rockwell, but they sent him to Newton, the minimum security part. I talked to him today, he said it is okay there, except that he is out of money.
