Well I would just like to know about rules, mail policy, the daily routine of the inmates...just stuff like that. I don't know a thing about Mobery and my friend is there. I would just like to know what they accept for mail, what they don't want you to do, like stickers on envelopes and stuff.

By rules do you mean institutional rules or visiting rules? Mail policy is this:

MAIL
One of the most important ways you can communicate with an offender is through written correspondence. Encourage your family and friends to write! Even if you are coming to visit soon and have talked on the phone recently, a letter is really appreciated, especially since your contact with an incarcerated loved one is restricted. If you have a few free minutes, send a quick note or card!

HOW SHOULD MAIL BE ADDRESSED?
To ensure delivery of your correspondence, we ask that you address envelopes as follows, and also complete your return address on the envelope.
Offender’s Name and Register Number
Name of Institution (Housing Unit if known)
Post Office Box Number or Street Address
City, State and Zip Code

The addresses for Missouri’s correctional facilities are located under the section of “Department of Corrections Facilities” in this guide.

IS MAIL INSPECTED?
Yes, all incoming and outgoing mail is subject to search. Mail received is briefly examined for unauthorized articles or substances and scanned to ensure it does not contain anything which may compromise the safety and security of the facility.

WHAT CAN BE SENT WITH LETTERS?
Up to five 8 x 11 enclosures or news clippings may be included with each letter. Only film-processed photographs or digital copies are permitted. Any enclosures, including photographs, may not contain depictions of gang activity, pornography, nudity, be sexually explicit or contain other inappropriate content. Stamps and stamped envelopes cannot be included in mail sent to an offender.

CAN MAGAZINES OR NEWSPAPERS BE PURCHASED FOR AN OFFENDER?
After an offender leaves the diagnostic center and is permanently assigned to a facility, you may make gift subscription purchases of magazines and newspapers for an offender. Prior to doing so, however, you should verify the magazine or paper is allowed and you have the complete and accurate mailing address which includes the offenders name, number and housing unit. You may also deposit funds to an offender’s account and they may then, in turn, subscribe to a periodical of choice.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU RECEIVE UNWANTED CORRESPONDENCE?
If you received unwelcome mail or threatening letters from an offender, notify the institution in writing that you wish the correspondence to cease. You should also provide a copy of the correspondence received. The offender will be directed to stop writing you. If it continues, the offender will be referred for possible disciplinary action.

As for daily routine, it varies from person to person. Normally there is count at 6am and then breakfast. Then either open wing or work or school. Then count again at 11ish and then lunch. Then either open wing, school or work. Then count at 4:15 and then dinner. Then either open wing or programs. The rec times vary by housing unit to housing unit and prison to prison. Unless he is involved in work, school or programs of some kind, he will spend a lot of time doing pretty much nothing. His free time is what he makes it.

I just wanted to share this as a well, I guess relief. I dont really like making those phone calls to the prison (any phone calls really) so I wait until I have a list of things and I force myself to sit down and dial the number. Being my fiances 3rd bid I hve dealt with MANY rude and not overly helpful Correctional Facility Employees. Today was so different. I talked to 4 different people. From the mailroom to the caseworker information assistant to the case worker himself and then the IPO. Each one of them took my questions seriously and did their best to give me the correct answer. Even when they were not positive of the answer they questioned others in the department to get the correct answer. Granted I dont want to call there excessively, but now that I have had a good experience calling I won't put things off. Thanks for listening as no family/friends understands the excitement I had after a respectful and helpful conversation!
