Default Need some insight from someone who knows

Hey yall, im new to this board. My boyfriend is in WTSP in henning. Yet hes going to be moved in less than a week to Whiteville b/c of overcrowding. He has only been in jail about a month so far and has until january until his first parole hearing. I'm SOOO scared about Whiteville, he told me in a letter that there have been 10 killings since its opening a few years back. Is this true??? I cannot tell you how frightened he is. I just need some info on this place. Is it as dangerous as he thinks? I'm sure it is if he says so, but i just wish it wasnt true.
Also i am very naive to the things that go on in TN prisons...so could someone breif me on what hes going through? What is a day like there? What is he exposed to. I know drugs is one of them, but thats about it. If someone could help me out i would be so thankful and greatful. (((hugs)))

Whiteville Correctional Center is a awful place my boyfriend has been there almost a year and half I'm trying to get him moved b.c he has been threatened by what I just found out a gang member. The guards don't give a crack about them, when you go visit their rude as hell. And the visitation room is small, overcrowding happens everytime. See I don't get to see my man that often b.c he's 500 miles from me i live in kingsport and driving with a 19 month old son we have together doesn't help that much either. If he stays out of trouble down there and doesn't communicate to the wrong people he should be alright. The only way you can talk to him is him calling you on a regular phone I don't think their able to call cell phones. But thankfully I don't have to go through Whiteville that long anymore b.c hes getting out in July. I'm sure you've read about what is goin on in whiteville in the other threads. I had the guards in Whiteville put my man in PC (private custody) b.c he was threatened, but they want to release him back in the gen. pop. which I hope they don't. I hope you don't experience all the heartache down there. God bless you if you have any other questions feel free to pm me.

becky, thanks for the reply. I am really scared for him. I really wish he could just stay in WTSP but that is not possible i guess. What is private custody? How could i arrange that?

Private Custoday is like the holding cell you stay in a cell by theirselves and their not able to walk around freely. The only time they get out of their cells is to go take a shower. They're suppose to be able to call just once a month but if they put in phone requests and get them approved their able to call. I would just do what Pam said and call down Nashville and tell them that you don't want him to go to Whiteville, that you've heard to many bad stuff about the institution. I hope you don't have to go through what Pam and me are going through. God bless.

Will they listen to me? Seems like they would just laugh in my face. What if his family called too?

Ya I'm pretty sure if you called down Nashville they would listen to you, if they don't just keep calling until someone does. They'll eventually get tired of hearing you call. If his family calls to that would help. But you would probably have to tell them that you don't want him down there because of the things you've heard and it being a private owned facility. The guards bring in drugs for the prisoners to sell for them then they bust them for it, so it doesn't look bad on them.

MissingScottTN,

Could you forward your home phone to your cell? It works from here.

Does Whiteville use Global Tel-link or some other phone service? I'm waiting to hear from my brother, but I'm not sure if I will need to set up a new phone account. Any information on Whiteville would be helpful

Thanks

I'm pretty sure they use Evercom. Thats what it says everytime Curtis calls me from down there. It might take awhile. Good luck I hope he calls you soon.
