How To Put Money On Inmates Books Over The Phone

Thinking has changed. I always thought if they were in prison, then they should be in prison. no leniency..

But I was only thinking of murderers, rapists, pedophiles not just a mishap over money….for the prisoner not to be able to get off his chair during visiting hrs…is wrong. His wife who is w/o financial support while he is there, has to cough up the $72.50 for his needs. He gets one ph call a day….for 10…

This sounds a little suspicious to me. All states require that inmates be provided with essential items at no cost. They are given toilet paper, clothing, sheets and blankets, three meals daily of which two are required to be hot meals, soap, a towel, a cup, a spoon, a toothbrush and tooth powder. and any necessary medications.Inmates who have money sent to their trust account may also visit the prison store once a month to purchase food and snack items, drinks, writing supplies, stamps, hygiene products, and various other items. An indigent inmate is also entitled to writing paper, a pencil, envelopes, and postage. All inmates may be sent writing paper, envelopes, and stamps through the mail. If this inmate is receiving $72.50 per month from his wife it is going toward luxury items at the store because the inmate prefers these items to the food and free items being provided.The calls are limited to 10 minutes, but the inmate gets to make at least one call per day. He can finish tomorrow what he can’t finish on his phone call today.Here in California the calls are 15 minutes long and they get two calls per day. Trust me when I tell you that even 30 minutes in one day doesn’t seem long enough when it is the only contact you have with a close friend or loved one. You just need to learn to budget the time well and make every minute count.The prison does evaluate each inmate and assigns a security level based upon the nature of the crime, length of the sentence, and the inmates behavior. This security level is evaluated every year and adjusted. More serious offenders tend to start out at a higher security level and work their way down through demonstrating good behavior. Lower security level means going to facilities where you have greater freedom and more privileges.The person in prison over the “money mishap” is being punished. They are the reason that the family is suffering. You can’t blame it on the prison system.EDIT: He has a job with a pay number and he’s still not happy? My friend had to wait a year and a half before he got a job with a pay number, and working in the kitchen means he has action to all that food that other inmates don’t get. Working in the kitchen is the best job there.

Got a few questions about prison.

I have been getting an idea of what prison is like from a couple of other questions I have asked but still have a few more.In a female prison do the male officers work with the prisoners? (are they around the cells or dorms, do they do any kind of searches on the prisoners?)I was told a officer can search a…

Hi there. Don’t be afraid, it will be OK. I have never been to prison in NC but I have in New Orleans. I only ever saw male officers when they were escorting us in the van to and from court. We were able to take a shower every day, but only at certain designated hours, for a couple hours in the morning and a couple hours in the evening. I usually just snuck in at night when most people were sleeping so I could have hot water and privacy. It wasn’t hard because usually the dorms have the showers right there and the guards are usually snoozing at that hour any way. I hated that the food was terrible and all the same, but I have noticed from other friend’s accounts that have in been in jail in other places that it isn’t always like that. Some places even have snack machines, that really depends on where you are going. Where I was you could order commissary off of a form twice a week, and buy snacks to be delivered to you. Some places actually have a store. Some places have books in a library and some you can only order them off commissary and some places you can have books and CD’s sent to you from Amazon (but not straight from a person). I would recommend taking a good amount of money to get started buying things you will need and want and setting it up for some one trusted to send you more when you need it. A lot of jails supply some basics like crappy tooth paste and maxi pads but you have to buy Crest and tampons, that is an example. When I was in there, it was one big room, surrounded but triple bunk beds and with the toilets and the showers at one end and the eating tables in the middle. If you are bad they can put you on “lock down” which you get a private two person cell but only get out for less than an hour a day to shower, so behave. I actually met a lot of cool people when I was thee, it was sort of like a really crappy summer camp. After people get to know you you will be surprised by how nice they can be. And also how ingenious. You can sew using the threads from your sheets and the wire from a twisty tie. They have come up with some amazing recipes using jail food, commissary snacks, and the heat from the shower, among other things. You can pluck your eye brows with a piece of string. I say, just be polite and mind your own business and be friendly and make friends, that will make the time go so much faster. You can sit around and tell stories and sing songs and goof off and sometimes forget you are locked up for a while. They have TV and movies. I liked to sleep during the day mostly, just getting up for meals, and then stay up at night when it was quieter and do some exercises (which I highly recommend because you will feel better physically and mentaly and not feel quite so much like you are wasting your life) and get my shower. And use the toilet in private. I am a night person though, not for every one. Sure, they can search you any time they want (women, usually no men in the dorms) but they very rarely make any effort, they are lazy and you would have to give them a reason. Just make sure the guards ignore you, don’t do stupid stuff to get in trouble, (like smoking weed or something) and you should be fine. They don’t like to get off their fat butts and only don’t like you if you make their job a pain. As far as the inmates go, you will have to use your judgement on who you want to share with. You don’t want the vultures to get the idea that you are a push over, but there are bound to be at least a couple people who you will want to share with and they will share with you when you don’t have any. Make friends, but be choosy. Keep to your self (but not be snobby) until you see more of who is who. In one big room that doesn’t take long. Make sure every one you know is going to send you letters! And buy envelopes and stamps right away, don’t get distracted by the potato chips, mail will keep you sane. Make sure any one you plan on calling has a phone that accepts collect calls. Don’t be afraid, it’s not that bad and is a learning experience. Oh, and be careful with your comb/brush. Do not let any one borrow it unless you have known them a long time and see that they don’t scratch their head. Always keep track of your towels and stuff, don’t lose your soap or TP, try to get a bottom bunk as soon as one is open, write your name on your stuff if you can. And wear like two bras, two pairs of under wear, and at least two pairs of socks. An undershirt if you can get away with it. A pair of boxers too. They will take your clothes but usually let you wear your undies, so double up, you will be glad to have them. If you want, pick out you some sheets and pajamas now for some one to bring youwhen you can get a package. Call up the jail and ask them what is on the list. Pretend you are a friend of some one in there and see if you can get the exact list of what is allowed in packages and in your mail. That changes from place to place. If you want, try to slip in with a bracelet or necklace or watch that

Question about jails in Texas.

My boyfriend got arrested…I think it was for some traffic tickets(warratnts) and cuz he hadn’t reported to an officer for his probation. He told me something about $500-$1,000 for his bond. Is there a deadline to bail out people on bonds? Do they take a long time for them to go to court? Who can go visit,…

actually a bond fee is 15% of the bond amount. 10 % is a myth unless you are talking about a very good customer. at 10% the bond company makes 0 profit. they don’t do these things as a public service, they are in the business to make money.1. call a bond agent in your area. you can even call several and price check but you will pay about the same amount no matter where you go. as long as your bf isn’t a flight risk, it will be just the bond fee. it also depends on the charge as well and the county. some counties are harder to get a bond released, therefore the bond company asks for more money or for collatoral. when you call the bond company, they will contact the jail and find out if your BF is even bondable or if he is stuck. if he has a probation violation then you are looking at a 2500-15,000 bond or more depending on the original charge and the county. the tickets may or may not be bondable from that jail,and he may be saying tickets when he is in fact referring to a misdemeanor (a lot of defendants do that even though a ticket is actually a traffic violation and they are talking about any kind of misdemeanor) that means he may have to be transferred to another jail to bond on that charge. bond companies don’t charge any $$ for checking bond information, they only charge for the actual bond. and always remember, the bond fee is non-refundable whereas collatoral is depending on bond conditions.2. you can call the jail. they will give you visitation and mail information. jails do not allow people to call inmates, they are not running a hotel. typically visitation is only 1 or 2 days a week and at certain hours. if you are approved to visit and your BF is allowed visitors (depending on his behavior in jail) you must have a valid ID to visit, not have been incarcerated in that jail for the previous 30-90 days depending on the county, and not have any outstanding warrants. you must also be propperly attired. you cannot take anything with you into the visitation room and they will check warrants when you hand over your ID.3. there is no time limit on bonding. as long as the person is bondable, they can be bonded 24/7. but when a bond is written it can take from 1-5 hours to book out depending on the county and how busy they are. ask the agent about how long it will take. some companies go to the jail and pick the defendant up themselves, some have the person paying for the bond pick them up from the jail. be sure to ask.4. the first court date in jail generally happens within 48 hours of arrest. it is most often called a video plea because the judge isn’t actually at the jail whereas in some counties, a judge goes to the jail for the arraignment. at this hearing, the defendant is asked if they want to plead guilty or not guilty. if they plead guilty, they proceed to sentencing. this generally only happens in the cases of traffic tickets. if they plead not guilty, then the judge decides whether or not to set a bond. that is based on what the charges are, what county the charges originated from, if the probation officer or parole officer (if applicable) has put a ‘hold’ on the person (meaning the person cannot bond out and is stuck until the charge is completely disposed of), and on the person’s criminal history. whether the person is bondable or not, the next court date can be anywhere from 1 week to 3 months later. again the person is asked if they wish to plead guilty or not. at this time, if the person pleads not guilty, they will set a tentative trial date.you can get the jail phone number from the phone book. look under county govt. (or city govt if it is a city jail)

I banned a former friend from my house for life. If he ever shows up, can I use the police to make him leave.

To make a long story short and to understand the question: a long-time friend of mine intentionally disappeared on me over a money loan for a laptop worth $1,000. He was supposed to pay me back the money within two years, but he never did. It is four years and counting and I never got a penny back. Before I bought…

Generally yes, you can prevent him from entering your property or legally demand that he leave. If he does not, you may call the police. At least in Texas and likely in other states, the police will force him to leave or arrest him. After that how it is prosecuted (if it comes to that) depends on how the district attorney in your jurisdiction handles such things. Some counties are very liberal on this issue.I have a “friend” who bought parts of a collection I had. He intended to buy much more over time as he got the money. Since I had known him a while–we both worked in law enforcement–I figured it was okay to let him take the rest of the collection and pay me back over time. Well, he didn’t. I knew where he worked, all his friends, had his phone number, and so on but he avoided me when possible. It’s unfortunate to know there are people out there who will use others for whatever they can. I still trust others generally, and trust other friends, but still I’m more cautious now.We expected this type of nonsense from the inmates we sometimes monitored. I didn’t expect it from him.

Ex-wife problems…can not get her to leave us alone..

My husband and I have been together for almost 3 years, married for a little over 2. His ex-wife is a major problem for us. Let me give a little backstory….she left him in 2007, she cheated on him with inmates at a prison that she was a corrections officer at. (She was later fired for it). They have a son…

wake up there is no reason what so ever that u even have to talk to her. so why or u or your husband even talking to her? their son who is 15 yrs old can go for visits with her if he wants to, he is at that age that he can make up his own mind. if he wants to see her so. why want your husband get his phone # changed? what i cannot understand is why do u talk to her or why dose he have to talk to her! this is a puzzle to me she is the past an the son is almost grown now. cut her off now no more contact what so ever with her as i said change your number an if she comes to the door of your home have her put in jail an take out a warrant to have her leave u guys along. if your husband will not go along with this then its time to take a leave from him an let him have her. its time for both of you to put your foot down to this pest. all it takes it to stand up for your self an mean it. simple as that!

Get possessions back.

My boyfriend was arrested and awaiting his trial in jail, when he first got there, he was unable to reach me and so impatient, he signed out his possessions to his cellmate’s wife who had agreed to get it out and call me to arrange for me to get his stuff from her. Ok so obviously? this woman did not contact…

This is the funniest story today on YA. Your boyfriend gave all his possessions to a cell mate. There is no cure for stupidity – get away while he is locked up. Don’t have kids with him.
