Leigh called last night and said his counselor told him he could be sent to Mt. Pleasant or Fort Dodge. Leigh told him Fort Dodge would be closer for family and friends to visit, so he thinks that is where they will be sending him. It may happen sometime in the next two weeks (he has been at Oakdale 4 weeks). I hope our visitor application (for me and my 15-yr-old daughter) will be approved quickly once he gets there. Anyone who visits Fort Dodge, the scoop on visiting would be appreciated. Thanks!

I hope everything goes fast and you get FD I think Anne (frkydaze) is our resident FD expert. I know there are a few others, but I can't think of names off the top of my head.

The overflow at Oakdale is the outcome of our unforgiving and hysterical society
we live in. More and harsher laws to pacify the clueless mentality of the witch-hunters= more votes and overcrowded prisons. Mandatory sentencing and no good-time means this will continue until SOMEONE finds the courage to agree that this is cruel and senseless punishment and what is needed is REHABILITATION!!!!!
Since what I hear with my own ears is that those who are in on drug charges (NOT ALL) are planning to get high before they leave the parking lot; and sex offenders who want help are NOT GETTING IT: the PTB are busy making more laws and using more mandatory sentencing.
Someone is insane with power: power corrupts and total power corrupts totally! We need a change.

Found out this morning on the DOC website that Leigh was transfered to Fort Dodge. We haven't heard yet that we've been approved for visiting, but I'd appreciate hearing as much about visiting at Fort Dodge as you think would be helpful. My 15 yr old daughter and I will be visiting him. Thanks.

My husband is at Clarinda, so let me know if you have any questions. He is also in the unit where the new guys stay until they are classified.

There aren't any for Iowa prisons. You can order books from bookstores and have them sent directly there, but that's it.

You have got to be kidding? Some of these rules and regulations are just ridiculous!! So are we allowed to send a care package from home?

I know...it sucks. No, you can't send anything from home either. You can send money to Ft. Dodge to go on his books, you can order magazines or you can order books and have them sent from the bookstore.

My husband is at Oakdale. I can send nothing and there is nothing but food and cleaning stuff he can buy from the commissary. He's not allowed books sent from a book store. No other clothes to buy on the commissary list. But the warden let me send his wedding ring back and keep it this time. That's a blessing from God and a Christmas present for my husband.

That is awesome IGIT!!!! Did you kiss it before you sent it back? We always touch each others rings before we leave a visit so that later we can touch it and know the other one was touching it earlier.

Default My loved one is in...

My wife is an inmate at the Iowa Correctional Facility for Woman in Mitchellvile, IA. She has been there for a month and it seems like a year. She has been away from me for 3 months and it really been hard on me through the Christmas season. She will be gone for another 6 mos and I hope it goes fast. The more I visit her the harder it has been to leave her each week.

Can they have hard back books in the different prisons. Currently mine is in county jail awaiting sentencing and I sent from bookstore a couple of books but he was not allowed to keep the hard bound book. What a crock of stuff.
