Default Info please on Decaturville TN jail/letter question

Hi, my boyfriend was arrested on some pretty serious charges and put in Decaturville county jail . Itís a small jail with no website and when you call the guards do not seem to really want to give information. They give bare minimum answers and there is no website I can go to.

My main question is about a letter. Without thinking about it I spritzed my perfume on it before sending it. I read afterwards on this site that that can be a problem. If it is rejected are they required to send it back to me? Or at least send a notice to me?

Iím afraid that he will not get it now and I will never know and just think he doesnít want contact anymore. Iím pretty sure he doesnít know my address or phone number by memory and I know he is on his own in there.

Also just curious about that jail and how it is . Iím in a different state and unable to visit.

I used to put perfume on all my letters, but Kentucky recently stopped allowing it. If your letter is rejected, they should return mail it back to you. It may take a while, but you'll get get it eventually. I hope they allow him to have the letter.

Decaturville must be an extremely small town. I did find the Sheriff Department website, but all it had was a one-line mention of who the jailer is; no visit info; no phone service provider info; not even an address or phone number for the jail

Hopefully someone from that area will add to this thread.

I agree. I would write again just in case. I would just avoid anything like that in the future. Crazy small jails can and usually find the smallest reasons yanno. I hope you get a response soon.
