Default A few Questions - sending books, packages, & time questions

1) I know you can send books from publishers. Can they be sent directly from family too?

2) other than the big packages that you send 4 times a year, can anything else be sent?

3) Zack signed a plea for a 20 year sentence, I know that he gets no good time with that long a sentence, but does the 10-11 months he spent in county count towards his sentence?

thanks for the help

The answers to your questions

1) no, the books have to be sent from the publisher like amazon, books a million, etc..

2)no, You can send him stamps, you can check with the facility about sending paper and envelopes..they will let them go to the commissionary (store) once a week.

3)yes, the time he spent in county will count.

Lori, my guy was at Limestone for 6+ years... they are pretty flexible with some things about mail. You can send in paper (go with loose leaf just to be sure, I think they may have changed regarding legal pads), envelopes, and ink pens. The ink pens, however, have to be ones with totally clear barrels - not even with the rubber finger grips - can be hard to find, but they are out there. The Bic Cristal pens will pass.
