Default How bad is intake at Woodman state jail?

I have a family member that recently arrived at Woodman state jail. How bad is intake there? She seemed pretty shaken by everything, but didn't say much in her letter.

Being that it's a women's facility, I'm not in a position to speak from experience. At the same time, it's a diagnostic/state jail that holds close to 1000 women and for many inmates it's either a short stay as a state jail offender (6 months-2years) or it's the first stop for those doing tdcj time.
If this is her first trip to prison, no doubt it can be scary. I still remember my first rodeo at Eastham back in the day.
If you're concerned about her safety or well being call the wardens office at 254-865-9398 and voice your concerns. No one should be made to live in fear. The senior warden is Jennifer Cozby. Good luck to and her.

My Girlfriend did about 8 months at Woodman. She said it wasn't bad as far as prisons go. Although, like Firebrand said, if it's her first experience that's a scary situation regardless of which unit it is.

I just was released from woodman in January after spending 12 months
The intake process is quite shocking
Woodman is strictly by the book
I never felt unsafe there
Feel free to ask me anything I'm an open book
Hope this helps
