Default Hello, Son is in Kern Valley S.P

New here...I live in Modesto. My son has been in prison a little over 7 years. Transferred to KV from Mule Creek. I have only seen him once in 4 months. Not able to because lack of money. Thought I may find someone else having hard time to go for visits. I have the SUV but little gas money, also had a hard time making that first visit. Just received letter from my son. he is now in ASU. Said cellmate tried to kill him with razor thing. He defended himself several cuts but other guy in hospital with not life threating injuries. Guess I will find out more with next letter. Not real sure about what is ASU? Look forward to meeting others in same boat.

Possibly, but CA also has "sensitive needs yards", so if that's why he is there, unlike federal prison, he might not stay in ASU long term.
