My son got arrested and was in County jail "intake" for 1 month, then to a "pod" for a few days before I bailed him out.
Later, he took a deal for 16 months, to serve 8 months in prision. They took him directly to County jail, and stayed in 'intake' again for a month and 2 days in a "pod" which I understand is a little better. then was transfered to the prision.
At the prision, he has been in "reciving" for 2 months while waiting to be "evaluated for placement" to decide where to send him for sentencing. I was told that he could be in reciving for up to 90 days. In reciving he is limited to visits, no TV, no phone calls home and no packages or books. . Yesterday they transfered him to another prision, in "reciving" again. How long can this go on?
