My fiance is in Jackson. It sucks. I can't see him and he can't call. will be glad when he gets somewhere. We have a review coming up. Can someone tell me what all they do there? Do they take off the county jail time? He sent me a form called "GA DOC sentence computation form" It has his max release date as 8/20/08 which is a year earlier than the 6 year sentence. I just want to know what all they do there. People keep telling me stuff and I want to hear from someone who knows. Thanks!

Sounds like your new at this! So am I! My husband has been at Jackson for going on 12 weeks now and I pray everyday that they move him soon. But I know God has a plan and a time for everything so I know I must be patient and I will be rewarded.

Don't let the max. release date letter scare you. Yes, they get credit for time served in the jail and depending on the charges and his behavior in prison he will probably only serve about half of the 6 year sentence.

I have networked and befriended several other ladies with loved ones in Georgias prison system. We have regular get togethers and share information on the different prisons and their experiences. It has helped me alot not only with the information but spiritually as well. You see we all believe in God and he gives us the strength to get through all the pain and loneliness.

If you don't already know, your loved one will not be able to have any visitors until he has been in Jackson 6 weeks. You can call the prison and get the exact date he will be allowed visitors.

They only allow family to visit, so you need to ask them about fiance' visits.

Visitation is Mon.-Fri. (once a week) and you can choose the time of 9-11 or 2-4. Mondays and Fridays are very crowded and afternoons can be also. I usually go 9-11 on Tues. or Wed. and it's not to bad.

You are not allowed to wear shorts, halters or be braless. No flip flop shoes or sandles, but I've seen several people get in with them.

He will not be allowed to make any phone calls to you until he has been in Jackson for 5 months and most are shipped out shortly after their 6 weeks diagnostic/ classificatiion.

Don't expect much when you do have your visit. You can not touch them and you talk to them through a heavy screen in a room full of other people yelling over each other.

If you have any more questions or would like to get together with other women in your situation for support let me know. It really helps me in knowing we have each other. My husband got 25 years but we are waiting on his appeal and praying for Gods deliverance.

God Bless You!

What happens at Jackson, GA diagnostic and classification prison? My brother has been waiting for the past two weeks in a detention center and has been told that he will be going to Jackson for assessment and then will be assigned to a prison to serve his 3 year sentence.

Sad1,

Everyone going to prison in Georgia goes to Jackson first. In Jackson they do a complete medical evaluation on you, physically and mentally. Then they decide what type of prison you will be going to. If you are handicap or have a medical condition they have prisons that cater to those needs. The classify you to either Low, Medium or High security prisons according to the crime and you mental evaluation. For 6 weeks your only outside contact is by mail. After 6 weeks you are allowed family only to visit. Usually shortly after your 6 weeks is over they move you to another prison for the remainder of your sentence.

I noticed you are in Indiana. I am originally from Michigan and moved to the Atlanta area about 7 years ago. My husband is in Jackson but they should be moving him soon. If you have any more questions or need information on coming to Georgia to visit your brother you can PM me and I would be happy to help in anyway I can.

Have a good day and sorry about your brother.

My fiance' is in Coastal State Prison in Garden City, GA. He has been there for 6 weeks. They said that he's just there for diagnostics, but theres a chance that he may be moved again or he could be put in the permanent population. Hopefully he stays there. I get to see him for the first time in 8 weeks this weekend. Wish me luck!!

My husband Ron just got transferred to Telfair State Prison today! Can anyone give me some info on what the visitations are like there? I called the prison and they said he won't be able to have visitors until next weekend and that they have no contact visits. Is that true? Will I not be able to at least kiss him when I arrive or leave?

Thank you,

littlebit

My guy is in Phillips State Prison,.. it's a good camp overall, and visitation is usually fair. The Warden is a previous Mental Health Counselor, and she's doing a good job. The counselors are available to family members, and will generally help out the best they can. The chaplains are INCREDIBLE, and camp is fairly secure.

My cousin is at Dooly, Does anyone know how I can get gifts and mail to him. The Georgia State dept of corrections site is not very helpful and I cannot call Long distance while I'm at work. Private messages will be appreciated. Thanks
