Default New Inmate

My boyfriend was just sent to Mahanoy State Prison in Frackville PA on the 5th of March. Ive received 2 letters saying that he was going threw medical evaluation and that he is in a hole. He has not received any of my letters and he has yet to call. Yes i made sure the mailing address is correct and i set up a Securus account. My question is is he able to receive mail while in the hole waiting to be medically released and how long after he has put a contact list will it be approved? Thank you

I have moved your thread to our PA forums and hopefully you will fine the answers to your questions.

I can't answer any questions on Mahanoy since all facilities are different. But, he will get mail. From my experience (over 13 years with a few different facilities) they don't send out mail everyday in RHU or where ever he is. And he can't use the phone (most likely). But once he gets into population he can call you. Also, all facilities are different with how long it'll take for you to get on his contact list. Your best bet is to call. Ask for his councilor to see if he or she can give you any information. Depending on his councilor they may tell you something. My motto with prison is hurry up and wait.... Hang in there!
