View Full Version : Pre-release bloodwork at TDCJ

My husband was called down to the lab for a DNA sample and just recently had a TB test done. Is this something they do prior to release and if so, how long before? He isn't due for release until Mar 10, 2011.

My son was at SAFP twice which is a TDC program - prior to his release he did have blood work done but I'm not sure of the DNA sample.

I'm sure someone will be along soon that can offer your better information.

DNA is a required (I blelieve retest) done before release...
they take one when you get there too. the "out" dna can be done long before release or the week before. Mine was done at the Walls 2 days before I got out.
If he hasn't heard anything about leaving, it's unlikely this is any kind of weird indicator that they're letting him go early though====
probably just mandatory weird tdc and medical stuff / truly there's a lot of head up their ass things that go on in there. But if you've got a release date that's your most accurate indicator! Best Wishes...
