adawehi56 11-27-2005 04:54 PM

WERDCC, Vandalia. You are also able to take into the visiting room in a clear plastic bag (clear make up bags work great.) up to $50.00. This may be in change, change and bills, there is a change machine in the visit room that will give change for ones and fives. I sugguest to make it easier on yourself, take quarters and ones. You also may take 1 unopened pack of smokes and 1 clear lighter and your inmate may smoke these also. In departing, you may take their smokes with you and you may take drinks and food items out with you, they can not. You are able to purchase their, up to 4 pks. of smokes for them. They lable these and take them back to their housing unit with them.

I just wanted to post a short note here to say that I was once an offender housed on 8 House in WERDCC and if anyone has any questions about the facility, I would be happy to try and answer them for you. I know how frustrated my family was when I was sent there and they knew nothing about it. Once again if you have any questions you think I might be able to help you with feel free to ask.

Hi Nicky, i was hoping maybe you can shed some light on this place for me? My daughter went to WERDCC on 10/2/2009. I unfortunately had no idea that the prison has there own phone system. I called & set it up, however she still can't get through they said there were insufficient funds on the acct. i do not have a prepaid plan set up because it appears that they are getting unnessary money from the families using it with all the extra charges they add in. I called PCS back & they told me she has to enter her inmate ID # before a collect call can come through? Do you know if this is how it works, or does she put the pin # in that i had to set up? They told me to call the prison beings i can't hardly get that message to her will they discuss this with me? I am very frustrated with this whole thing when she arrived they took her $ plus made her send everything back home (i'm assumng with the stamps i bought) are they not allowed to have paper-envelopes-stamps-pencils & pictures of her children? I am sad & worried, and really want to talk to her! Anything you can tell me i would appreciate more than you'll ever know, as well as her 4 young children! Thanks so much!! Very sad & concerned Mom

tHANKS FOR YOUR OFFER. i HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS. I"M IN SPRINGFIELD, AND MY SENTENCING HEARING IS FRI, 23RD. THE BED DATE I WAS GIVEN IS 5-31-10. I WANTED TO ASK IF YOU KNOW WHETHER OR NOT THE JUDGE WILL LET ME GO BACK HOME UNTIL THEN. I HAVEN'T BEEN IN ANY MORE TROUBLE AND THE LAST TIME I WAS IN COURT WAS FEB 5TH - FOR THE PLEA AGGREEMENT. MY LAWYER IS GOING TO REQUEST THAT I REMAIN WITH MY FAMILY, AND REPORT BACK TO THE COURTS WHEN MY BED DATE COMES UP. ANY IDEA WHAT THE JUDGE WILL DO?
Also, I read somewhere on here that I can take 1 unopened pkg. of underwear, 1 bra - no wire, paper, envelopes, stamps, and also a pair of pj's - but they have to be a matching pair. What do you know about that?
Thanks so much!
Sunny

My daughter-in-law was just sent to WERDCC and we can't find anything out. I set up a phone call line for her but when I call down there to ask them to have her call they tell me to call back. We are just worried about her because she has seizures and we want to be sure she is okay. Anything you can tell us would be greatly appreciated.
