They might forward it. I sent my boyfriend a letter one time, but it was to the wrong unit, but they forwarded it to the current unit he was at.

In my experience, no they sent it back. Different inmate numbers from county to state.

Once he's in the DOC system, the mail usually gets forwarded. this is especially true for those going into the system (from Greene and GFRD to Camp Hill). Mail is simply sent on the same bus as the prisoners.
