My guess is it won't be too long with all of the overcrowding now. I am wondering if the Ombudsmans Office might be able to tell you? Might be worth a try to call them and see.

It is not opened yet but it is signed sealed and delivered, It will hold about 600 of this states medium and maximum security women prisoners.

It will be interesting to see how many they transfer from Pee Wee there or if they take the majority from the jails that are awaiting a place to open.

Thanks for sharing.

there are now about 400 women there, it is a minimum and medium security. they are having a dificult time adjusting to guarding women instead of men.
