Default What are the restrictions on magazine subscriptions in South Dakota?

Hello,
Does anyone know if there is a list or what the restrictions are as far as magazine subscriptions? Thinking about getting one for my guy just wondering how to go about it. Thanks!

I haven't been able to find anything terribly specific on magazines, though I did find this: http://doc.sd.gov/about/faq/mail.aspx

In particular:
Quote:
Materials depicting nudity or encouraging sexual behavior that is criminal in nature or detrimental to an inmate's rehabilitation;
I would guess it's similar to Oregon:

1. Order the subscription and make sure the line for his name includes his inmate number (I often put [first last name] on the 'first name' line, then [inmate number] on the 'last name' line to make sure the whole thing makes it onto the mailing label correctly

2. Make sure the magazine doesn't have much, if any, nudity. Oregon seems to allow Playboy but other magazines of that ilk are often refused.

If you want more information, you could probably call someone on this website and they'd be able to answer your question (or, if you can find the number, call the mail room for the institution your guy is at): http://doc.sd.gov/contact/

Hope that's helpful.

Gin

Just order a gift subscription for the inmate. Pay in full. Makes sure that you have the inmates institution number after the name Jon Doe xxxxx.

No adult or xxx magazines allowed.

Don't send GQ. He won't get all the issues.

All magazines are subject censorship. Which means not getting an issue if some picture within is considered nudity.
