Redirecting to the criminal defense section of this service.
Criminal law is a specialty and those with criminal law problems should have an attorney to represent them.
That's NOT a good idea! Speak to his lawyer. There could be stuff in that discovery that's dangerous for him in the prison. DO NOT send it. Then again, if you can't figure out where to mail something, there's probably nothing to worry about. The prison officials may not even deliver what you send because they know the risk/danger of him having it.

Sorry to hear that your son is in Prison, but why does he want the discovery from his case? Is he doing a pro-per appeal? That is not recommended and he should contact the California Appellate Project (CAP) to do the appeal.
As Mr. Finnecy states, depending upon what is contained in the discovery, it is not a good idea to have it in custody. Since he is already in Prison, he has been convicted, so he doesn't need to worry about "snitches" reading the reports and trying to testify to lessen their sentence. If it is a sex crime charge, he DEFINITELY should not have it in custody as he will become a target.
Contact his attorney to ask their opinion. Your son should have already read the packet prior to pleading guilty or being convicted, so not sure why he wants it...
Good luck to him...
