My name is A. My husband is 2 days in to a surprise 4 month sentence in Sandoval County Detention Center. He went to court wednesday morning over a failure to appear warrant from 2002. He had previously been told that this court date would clear everything up, he'd be put on probation and pay some fines. At the court date, the judge accused him on being 'on the run' for 15 years, and ordered him to jail. They took him out of the courtroom without letting me say anything to him. Ive only had one 3 minute call with him since then. This is a nightmare Sandoval seems to be the hardest place in the state to get info on anything. It took me three phone calls before someone would give me his inmate number. Ive reached out to a friend who spent some time locked up, and he's helping me navigate setting up securus, and a commissary account.
