Does anyone know about the lockdown at MCJ? :confused: My husband's P.O. was supposed to go see him and they're on lockdown he said. Any info would be appreciated. Please post if you know anything. I'm really worried about my husband.:(

My husband is in the south facility for wayside, has anyone gotten a called today from someone there. I haven't heard from him since yesterday afternoon, so i was just wondering if they are on lockdown. If they are how long does it last?

Wayside, North Module 3 is on lockdown, apparently there was some kind of fight. If you're planning on visiting and haven't left yet, don't go, they stopped visiting for the day.

Last Friday 12/4 I went for a visit at county jail and during our visit, all of a sudden, they kicked everybody out and they said they are on lock down. Since then, I have not received a phone call (unusual). I was just wondering if anyone knows if they are still on lock down and therefore can not make any calls? The reason I'm asking is because he was very sick when I went to see him and I just wanna make sure that the reason I'm not getting a call is not because something bad happened to him.

something to keep in mind w/phones is that depending where they are housed in mcj the deputies can take away phones whenever they want for no particularly good reason. (so one dorm may have phones available to them to use while another won't)

thats true. last week i was on the phone and all of a sudden the line was cut off. the next day, my loved one told me that the deputy had shut off the phone in his dorm only. i think its becuase we were on the phone for more than an hour.

I called the business phone and talked to somone who said they will have lockdown until Thursday. I'm really worried and don't understand why they already been having 1 week lockdown and 1 more week. Something very serious must have happend. Can anyone please find out when they go to the jail? I've never heard of such long lockdown.

Yesterday (12/18/09) a deputy at MCJ told me they had planned to end the lockdown Thursday (12/17/09) but renewed trouble forced them to extend it.

My friend who is serving a term in MCJ says the lockdown has prevented them from being able to buy anything from the store for two weeks and appears to have interrupted the processing of early releases. A variety of other restrictions has made life even more uncomfortable than usual.
