Default Intro--txchiktraveler from Texas

I have been lurking for several months knowing I would need this site at some point. Hubby was just moved from the our NE Texas county jail to somewhere, not sure where, or how long it will take me to find out.

He and I are well over 65 and this is NOT what I had planned for my golden years! It's going to be tough, on both of us, but with prayers and support from our families, and knowledge from you folks, we will make it through this.

So very blessed to have found this site. I will need all the help I can get to help me figure all this out.

Welcome to Prison Talk. Prison during retirement is extra nasty. I'm glad that you have support from your family.

I hope you hear from him soon, and his sentence passes quickly for both of you.

Northeast Texas likely fed into Gurney in the Palestine area presuming this is something other than a State Jail sentence. Expect an appearance on the website locator by Tuesday AM...

Welcome to PTO. I am sorry you're going through this but glad you found us. It seems you're on the right path getting information already. Hang in there and keep us posted.
Perhaps you may find the Husbands thread useful.
My husband always said, "Prison is a young man's thing." It was not for "the old timers".
Nonetheless, welcome.

Thanks everyone for the welcome. Found out he went to Byrd, then after intake will be transferred to a medical (likely Galveston, I was told) facility. He has lots of medical issues. I was also told to call back to Byrd unit tomorrow (Tues) and I would be given his offender number. I'm trying to get phone squared away and set all that stuff up. I will be posting under other topics, I have lots of questions.

Thank you so much. I will most certainly keep you in mind. I feel I'm in a whirlwind right now.
