Default Information on High Desert Nevada

My son will be getting out of the fishbowl end of December. As he moves through the different levels. What are the differences in each level @ High Desert; or do they move them to other prisons to progress through the different levels? Do they sit in their cell all day? Do they have the opportunity to exercise, to go to various classes, religious training, etc.

Are they
allowed to keep letters from home?

What type or how big is their storage (only for clothes). I hear he only has 2 of everything to wear. How much clothing is acceptable for them to have in their cell?

We want to send him a care package through Securepak-Nevada before end of January, but don't want to overdue his space requirements!

Thanks to all who help me understand better!

Hi NevadaMom- I moved your post to the Nevada State Forum as hopefully members there will be able to help you with the information you need.

Hi Nevada Mom.

I don't know anything about the different levels at high desert, but it is usually locked down most of the time, so unless they have a job there, he will be in his cell most of the time. They all get a foot locker as far as I know, so they have room for more than two of everything. There are some classes, not sure what is available at HD, my husband is at SDCC, and there are some classes, although some of the programming has been cut. He is free to practice his religious beliefs and go to sermons I believe. Yes, they can keep letters from home and they can have pictures, be sure to put his name and back number on the back of them.

Hope this helps. If you have more questions I will try to answer or I'll ask my husband next time we talk on the phone. You can PM me anytime. Take care.

Marlene, my man is at SDCC too, perhaps they know one another? (Of course, listen to me...I make it sound like this is some small intimate place, there are probably thousands of guys in there so it's probably unlikely, huh?) Oh well, just thought I'd touch base with you cause we're dealing with the same location.
