Byrd unit Texas Prison Unit
ok, my husband ken was moved from lopez state jail, all the way to the byrd unit in huntsville for diagnostic stuff. is there any info that i need to know about the byrd unit? what are you all's experience with that unit? let me know
Hey!! Im glad that somone has something in common with me. My boyfriend is in the Byrd unit. He just got moved there about 2 weeks ago. He said that its boring, they dont get to lift weights or work, no rec. But other than that he hasnt had any other complaints well except that its hotter that hell in there. Oh yeah he also said that its only a two man cell and that it is really laid back in there. Well other than all that I can't tell you anything else but if u want me to find anything else out for you let me know- pm me!!!
Does anyone know if they have pictures at the Byrd unit? If so, do you buy them or what???I have never gotten pics yet because my boyfriend has just been in a county jail and then went to Gurney unit and he wasnt there long until he got moved agian. If anyone knows please let me know .....
Byrd is only a Diagnostics Facility. There are no visits at all there, and no, no pictures. They will only be there like 2-3 weeks. My husband just moved from there about a month ago, and he was only there about 9 days. From there after they do all the Diagnostics testing, they will go to a regular unit which could be anywhere in Texas.
I just wanted to point out that this thread hasn't been active since 2003, so these members probably won't reply. But I've moved the thread to the Byrd Prison Unit - Texas sub-forum where you'll probably find lots of info. Please check it out!
