If he is in Pre-Trial then I'm sorry to say it is not a very nice place. There are a lot of politics among the inmates. If your white your the minority. My husband was in F pod which is supposed to be one of the hardest areas. It is mainly ran by Nortenos. Hopefully he will not be messed with too much.

he's had 2 felony arraignments when he was in kern county jail. then they moved him to lerdo and he had his pre-preliminary hearing and on the 4th is his sentancing day i think. so i have no idea if thats considered pre-trial or not. if he gets a yr and one day or less then he can serve his time there and they wont ship him off to prison right?

He's most likely in Pre-Trial if he is still going to court. Depends on what the DA recommends as to where he does his time. They can recommend county time or prison time. And the Farm as they call it is for low-minimum security inmates. So depending on his charges that can make a difference on where he does his time.

My fiance was out of custody for only 3 weeks. He has been in custody for about 4 weeks now, another parole violation. He
was transfered from Wasco to the Bakersfield County Jail a few
days ago. Does anybody have any information about the In
Custody Drug Treatment Program they have there at the jail??

Same thing happened with my boyfriend and I had no clue what the hell was going on. If you google ICDTP with will have a website that explains most of what goes on in ICDTP Lerdo. Also try the Kern County Sheriff's website, it has the inmate information like their SO# and anticipated release date (I just found out his and I am bouncing off the walls). Hope this helps - lala

I posted in another forum regarding Lerdo. My grandson was arrested for possesstion of a controlled substance and parafannalia(sp) in Bakersfield on the 11th of September. He is in Lerdo Minimum waiting for all of the hearings. Any info regarding that jail would be appreciated.

I'm not at all familiar with county jails except here in my county. You might want to check out the California County Jails section and post in that forum, here is a link to get you there.

Hope this helps.

My grandson was arrested in Bakersfield Californian on September 9, 2008. I found him on the inmate locator a couple of days later, he had been sent to Lerdo Minimum. His Birthday was on September 27th and I tried to get a letter to him., I used the Inmate number that I thought to be correct. I found 3 numbers, a booking number, a court case number and a number that started with SO-------and sent a letter and put $50 on his account through an online company jailpay??something like that cost $10. I got the letter back stating that I had the wrong address, so I tried to follow the Lerdo Website exactly to resent it. It has been a week and hasn't been returned yet (crossing fingers). I want to let him know he has a bit of money on the books and that I am praying and loving him from afar. I live in Florida. Visiting just isn't possible. Anyone know anything about Lerdo Minimum? Anyone have a love one in Lerdo? My grandson was picked up for having meth, and pharafernalia (sp?) and for threating with the intension of terrorizing, he of course was high on the drug. It breaks my heart, he is a really a wonderful guy a college graduate that has got caught up in the horror of the meth culture. Any info would be appreciated. Sorry this is so long just spilling my guts. :(

Martha, i know what you are going through, my son was just entered into the lerdo facility 11/4/08, i just had my first visit with him this past saturday. My told me that they are currently on lockdown mode. so visits are done in session of 25 inmates at a time so even though you are there early you still may not get to visit. when you put money on their books they get a receipt and it tells them how much you sent. due to the lockdown they are only allowed to purchase items 1 day a week which for my son is on wednesdays, they are allowed to purchase phone cards, however ever you get about a 10 minute phone call out of every card, due to the fact once the call is conected there is a $2.80 charge. I know talking with my son all he wants is letters. lots of letters, i try to write him everyday. they can receive books and magazines if they come directly from the publisher, so like a magazine subscription would work. My prayers are with you,. btw my son is in for a dui charge.

MotherlyLove, you are so sweet to answer my post. I have not checked since I got home from my daughter's in the bay area for Thanksgiving, so missed your post until today. Also, my computer was down for a few days. My grandson goes to court on the 23rd of December for sentencing he took a plea so let's hope that the Judge accepts it. Do you know anything about Sober Living in Bakersfield? He will be an in-patient for a year that is if he gets the please he worked out with the Prosecutor and then a few more months of jail time. My daughter is going to go see him today, I did not think to tell her to check and see if the minimum is on "lock down". How long will you r son spend at Lerdo? It does just break your heart. There is so much out there that the young ones can get caught up in, I am not defending my grandson just feel it is so different than when I was growing up in Edwards at the Air Force base. I will send my prayers to your son and to you as well.

Lerdo very rarely goes on lockdown because it is a relatively low level jail/prison, many of the inmates there are deportees.

He will go to a halfway house where he will attend meetings, get a job and get his life together.

Thanks, for the info on lock down at Lerdo it sure helped.

I am so sorry Lemar's wife that you are having trouble with the intake officer, it happens I think some time, they just cop a dislike for some darn reason. Hope it is resolved soon, have they taken your visiting away yet?

I sincerely hope he does get his life together, he sounds so good now but the fear will always probably be there that he will find his way back to drugs.

Thank's so much ladies for the posts.

Hello prison talk I'm not sure if I'm in the right place or not. But I thought I'd give it a shot I want to visit my baby's father in lerdo pre trial. I have a car with insurance but I don't have my license so it's any one willing to give me a ride with them I'll give yu gas money. Or if someone has their license that could help to. Please and Thank yu

Do you have an ID, otherwise you cannot visit. Post in the Wasco or Delano or Kern Valley State Prison forums. Lerdo is on the way to these prisons, and you can arrange to be dropped off and picked up. Wasco is closest to this detention facility.

she could still visit if she don't have an ID. but she would have to have some kind of identification of herself. I don't have my ID either but I use my passport to enter the facility. :)

The only forms of ID accepted in and prison or county jail system is a ID, DL, Passport and the prisons use to accept ID's from Mexico and things like that but I do not beleive they accept those anymore.
