Okay! I am totally confused and sad. I haven't heard from him since 05/07/08. I don't know when he was transferred from Baldwin to Autry or anything else. When is visitation and who can visit? What can I send in the mail and how about funds on his books? Need all information possible. I am concerned about personal safety for the inmates. Where can I get info on the Prison itself?:cool:

I just went to Autry for the first time yesterday. Visitation is on Saturday and Sunday from 9-3 no one in or out from 11-1 (count time) he has to send you forms for you to fill out for you to come visit. To put money on his books you have to be on his visitation list or they will send the money order back to you. Hope this was helpful. Took me like 3 hours from Atlanta.

alone66, i've stayed in the area as well. i've flown into albany & tallahassee. (albany is closer) both airports have car rental agencies. i can give you nice motel recommendations so you can avoid the dumps. i've also found malls, restaurants & other things to do while you're there. hit me up when you book your flight.

Fiance just got a transfer in the middle of the first week of May from Floyd County to Autry. His TPM is this month. Will him being transferred affect the parole process and make it take longer?

Welcome ncl and the answer is no, unless he was transferred for disciplinary reasons.

Last night I got a call from an inmate at the Prison where my husband is supposed to be; they transferred him in the middle of the night! I called CDOC to find out where they sent him and was told to Autry State Prison.
I have not heard from him yet, but if this is true I will be driving down there for visits. He was in Moultre up until last night. It looks like Aurty is one county over...about a 3 hour drive. Seems cheaper to drive than fly, unless ya'll know something I don't. If it IS cheaper to fly, I would be interested in splitting a hotel bill if anyone is willing.

Welcome MsParker2010,

There are hotels in Douglasville which is about 30 minutes from Autry. When my husband was at ASP, I've stayed at the Sleep Inn and Quality Inn Suites. One of our GA forum members recommended Comfort Inn as well. There are restaurants and shopping in Douglasville so you will have something to do instead of sitting in the room all afternoon and evening.

Its been a few years since I've visited but if you have any questions, feel free to PM me.

I have tried calling Autry on numerous occasions, the phones are nto answered, or you get busy signal. When I did get thru to the wardens office, I was assured , he would call me back....he has not...in all the times I have called.
The prisoners, get 2 meals a day.....if they are grabbed by a guard, who thinks they did a violation, and they see warden walking by. and want to call out to him...they are threatened with pepper spray.
THIS IS TRUE..HAPPENND TO MY SON.. LAST WEEK.
Now no one answers main phone line...maybe it is busy. but hey,l what is back line number, which congressman and governor can call?

Steele,
If you hgave left several messages for the warden and your calls have not been returned , your next step is to call the Ombudsmen's office. The # is 478-992-5358. Good luck.

I stay at the Comfort Inn in Thomasville. It's about 30 to 40 min. past Autry. My fiance is in Thomas County CI. I think that might be the closest nice hotel. There is another one a little closer, I think the name is Western Hotel. Hope this helps. Enjoy your visit!
