Hi there and welcome to PTO.

I'm not familiar with LA but I know it's not uncommon for inmates to be moved based on the needs of the facility. I'm assuming this is county (parish?) jail. Is he awaiting trial?

If that's a yes, that can be a very trying time for everyone. Try to breathe and realize that there will be a lot of "new" for him and you, the majority of which is outside of your control. Write him-- getting mail helps pass the time and reminds him he's not alone. If you're able to put a little money on the phone so he can call, I'm sure he would appreciate that.

In the meantime, check out our LA forum and see if you can find his facility. Specific questions are best posted there. Hang in there.

Welcome to PTO and the Louisiana Forum. LIke Mia said, they can move inmates around as needed for space and other concerns. What facility is he in?
