(1) what day would they pick him up to go to Lake Butler?
(2) how long will it be before he is at his permanent location?
(3) how long will it be before he can call or write?
(4) how do i send him money for commensary?

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Hey, unfortunately I'm not familiar with that prison or anything. But if you keep scrolling down the forums, you'll get to the state ones. I'd suggest looking in the Florida forums and finding the specific reception/intake center that he would be going to and just looking all around the Florida forums. I hope someone can come along and help you! And welcome to PTO! I'm sorry you need us, but glad you found us!

Welcome LakHawk...hope you enjoy the forums. Only question I can help with is the sending money. If you go to the FL department of corrections web site..you should be able to find out how the state takes inmate account deposits.

Since your question is state specific, I've moved your thread so the people most familiar with the FL system can help. I wish you the best of luck!

You'll need to ask someone familiar with Alachua County Jail what day they make their Lake Butler runs. It is different for every county.

He'll be in reception at Lake Butler for at least several weeks, and then he could be in transit to his final location for several more weeks. Once he arrives at his final location then you can turn in your visitation application and go visit when you get approved.

He can write as soon as he has supplies to do so. He can buy them in the canteen or you can mail them to him (10 sheets of paper and 10 SASE's in a 9x12 envelope - no metal clasp) as soon as you have his DC# from the DOC computer after he arrives. You can send him mail right away too as soon as you have his DC#.

He won't be able to call until his phone list is approved. That can take a couple of weeks, depending on how fast he turns it in, and you may need to submit paperwork to get approved (if you have a cellphone on the list or your landline number is new).

There's several ways to send money to him for the canteen, but the fastest is to use jpay.com. You'll need his DC #, and so as soon as you see it on the computer you can send to him.

I hope that helps!
