My daughter is a federal prisoner but is housed in Mitchellville. It's only 109 miles so I am able to take her children to visit often.

i'm new to this and trying to figure everything out. I just moved to Florida but my guy back in iowa just went through oakdale and is now in fort dodge. I don't really know anything about prision. first time dealing with all this. I was hoping someone could just fill me in. I have only gotten one letter from him and he's been at fort dodge for a 3 or 4 weeks now and i'm not sure how often they can write and what the writing, or calling process is. i'd love some information --- lyn

Default Possibilities

When U moved from oakdale to the next place it sometimes takes a bit for your $$$ to follow he may not have cash for envelopes. He may be trying to Adjust to his new surrounding. Just some possibitilties to consider. Why not drop him a line and see.MAIL ranks right up there with food for an inmate

My son is @ Rockwell City. He is to be there until June, but they are talking about a halfway house, any word o how those work? Is it better to just finish your time at the prison?

My hubby is in Fort Dodge. He was at Newton (up the hill) last time around and I think we both liked him being there a lot better!

Hello! My husband just got sent to Oakdale last week. Was wondering if anyone could give me any info on what it's like there, etc. And if anyone could tell me what it means by everyone saying their time gets cut in half when they get sent to Oakdale. Meaning the time at Oakdale, or their total time? My husband sentence was 'not to exceed 10 years', with the mandatory taken off. His lawyer said he'd do about 12 months. Thanks to All.

<3 Tara

For questions on time count, I found that the best thing to do is to just call Oakdale
(319)626-2391
and choose the records option on the recording, and ask for someone in time count. they can answer any time count question you have and can explain the whole "cut it in half" thing a lot better than I ever could. And just a note, the lawyers have no idea.
