        What is the address so i can sendmy letter to my inmate

  9. Kati July 16, 2013 at 3:06 pm #

    I have a few questions. My 1st question is what is the dress code. What is allowed & what isn’t. How long does my shorts have to be. Cause id hate driving a hour or two getting there & then get turned away. My 2nd question is how do the phone calls work? Do I have to go thru a certain company & add money to my phone or can an inmate buy a calling card? My 3rd question is does the inmate have just books or do they have an account like some other places.

    • PrisonPath July 17, 2013 at 5:12 pm #

    Our son, Todd Edward Jackson, inmate number 1867723, was transferred to C Moore unit in Bonham, but I understand he is back at Gurney. Since he has been in TDCJ, we haven’t heard a word from him. When will he be able to make a phone call to us? I have put money on Jpay for him to use. I have also put money on his commissary account, but I have no idea if he has received it or not. This Jpay is a joke, no feed back at all. Is Todd able to receive visitors at this time? I also understand, from his letters, that he has been before the parole board, do you know if the board has made a decision on his parole? Thank you for your time.
