I was in Gatesville for 16 months, The best thing to do if you go is make the best out of it, keep busy, read and excercise, it will make the time go by much faster. Stay away from the problem makers. If you show respect to the guards, you in return will also receive respect. Ther are many good people there working that will help if you need it, as long as you take care of business the correct way while there.

My wife is at Gatesville and I can update Kathy's information a little. The senior warden is Rebecca Adams, a graduate of Southwestern U. She is reputed to be fair, reasonable, etc. I met with her once and she seemed all of the above. I laid some complaints on her desk and she agreed with most of them. But, of course, she did nothing about them and I guess it's because guards are so hard to come by they don't dare fire any of them. The women live in dorms and I gather they have their share of the same problems you get when there is a large group of unhappy people forced to live in close quarters. Most of the guards seem tolerable as guards go. It seems to me they are on lockdowns a lot but I really don't have anything to compare their frequency with.

You can of course write to your sister, and you can visit her on Saturday or SUndays for two hours, you just have to have her add you to her visitation list. Depending on her status depends on what type of visitation you will get. I was a trusty and I was able to have contact visits for two hours. There is no telephone calls aloud untill the night before she is released. Good Luck
