Default Recently sentenced in North Dakota, not on DOC search yet

Michael Foster was sentenced in Pembina County 2/6 and the news story said he would start serving his time immediately.

What does "immediately" mean in terms of where to look?

Would he maybe be in the Pembina County jail waiting for transport to Bismarck? How can anyone find out? Does the jail even have an inmate search? I haven't found it.

When is it reasonable to expect him to appear on the state DOC locator? None of the matches on "Foster" are him as of the night of 2/7. You'll know you've got the right one if it's a white guy about 53 years old.

Is there any way his friends and family can get mail to him?

He is currently in the Pembina County Jail.

Edit: Sorry, you can find him using vinelink.com
You can look up info on how to mail him or how to put money on his book at
the website for the jail, just google pembina county jail north dakota.

Thank you.

Either there are two people the same age with almost exactly the same name or else the records are fouled up. Here's what Vinelink says as of 2/8:

The jail's web site is not the most helpful I've ever seen:

He's probably in transit, vinelink only shows where some one is after they are told.

Commencing that day means going into custody, but not necessarily the agency where the sentence will be served. Once a transfer TO that agency occurs, it is not uncommon for there to be a gap of 24-72 hours before appearing on the agency locator.

In the VineLink listing shown above, it (at least to me) clearly shows transferred from the jail to another agency, with the other listing being the VineLink update showing DOC custody.

Look up your states prison website and do an offender locator by using his last name and that will give u his location and info on how to send mail to him
