How to find out if a prison is closing in North Carolina???
Ok everyone, need a little help here. My babe is in Robeson Correctional in NC. There's a new budget proposal that if passed, will shut down about 4 prisons in NC. My babes prison is one to be shut down. They say if it does, it'll be closed August 1st. The kicker is, my babe gets out the end of August!!! Anyways we're trying to find out for sure if that's gonna happen, so he can put in for a transfer to another prison, that will be close to home. Hrs worried they'll ship him out a few hours away.
Does anyone know if this is true...that it'll be closed come August 1st? How would I go about finding out? Thanks everyone for any help!
After the House and Senate get through debating the budget a final budget goes to the Governor, if he signs it with those facilities still in the budget, it's a done deal.
If he vetoes it, it's back to debate and compromise.
If it does close - you're LO will not have to put in for a transfer - they (That big computer in Raleigh) will have already figured out where he's giong next. Then when it comes time for his release he will be sent to a facility near where he is being released. Normally, it is a couple days before release but can be the same day as his release.

Thank you for the info. My babe said they already started transferring guys out of there. But they haven't been told yet that its a sure thing.
Just hate the fact he's going to be transferred so close to his release date. His case manager already started the process of his release. I've got to talk to the case manager and confirm the fact I'm picking him up. Its just crazy.
My son is at Western Youth and they have begun moving the inmates out. My son said they all are suppose to be out by Oct. He's 3 hours ago from home now. He has a year and a half left to serve. Any ideas if he will be moved near home?
