I am not a criminal, I am a straight A student who has graduated from college and has a good job. A 24 year old asshole Conway cop arrested me for DWI and I spent 9 hours in Conway detention. I had only 2 beers and passed the field sobriety, by the way. So is it fair that I was booked, deloused, forced to wear a jumpsuit, eat (I refused the meals) that crap they call food, have my hands chained to my waiste for 4 hours straight, etc? I "slept" on a freezing cold concrete floor without socks or underwear and my hair was wet from when they deloused me. I lost a contact lens because it fell out of my eye while I was crying and my hands were cuffed to my waiste. The officer told me I didnt have to take the breathalizer if I didnt want to, then charged me with a separate crime of "refusal." So on, and so forth... it was humiliating and the treatment was ridiculous. By the way, my cell mate was a soccer mom who had never been arrested before. Would you care if that was YOUR mom, how she was treated in there?

Did you even read what I had written? I was not breaking the law. In order for me to have been over the limit after 2 beers would have required me to weight 60 lbs and I assure you, I dont. The officer was on a mission... follow someone from a bar and give them a DWI. So he did, and he fabricated the police report to say what all of you are trained to say "smelled itoxicants, eyes appeared blood shot, waivered when getting out of vehicle" and so on and so forth. It happens every day and you cant say it doesnt if you know ANYTHING about this kind of stuff.

It is truly amazing the lack of responsibility that individuals are willing to take. The bottom line is if you break the law then you go to jail, it's not a party or the Hilton, it's jail. If you don't think you broke the law, guess what there is a process by which you may have your say, that would be called court, the judicial system. It truly shocks me to hear people say things like the cop waited outside a bar (what "bar" in Faulkner County, restaurant maybe?)and followed them. Did you know that law abiding citizens within the community have expressed concerns about people leaving these locations after consuming alcohol and driving. My point, if officers are watching patrons leave these establishments there is a reason, it is to ensure the safety and well being of others. It is an officer's job to serve and protect that includes all of you, I bet you wouldn't hesitate to call 911 in an emergency. Who do think answers those calls. Act like an adult, take responsibility for your actions. If you feel that you have been mistreated, then follow the proper procedures to remedy the situation. For those of you with good jobs and straight A's you should behave like it.(P.S. I have no affiliation with any law enforcement agency, I'm just the sister of an inmate at the Faulkner County Detention Center.

My mom has been in jail since I was 13, I'm now 20. She just got out this year. She went to Faulkner County n was shipped to RPF in Tha Rock, but b4 they shipped her she was here for like 3 years. Her and another woman got into a fight in tha kitchen and this female busted my momma in tha head with tha door, because her n 6 other women ganged up on her. That happened on a Saturday, and I visted har on that next Tuesday. Tell me why she still had matted up blood in her hair. They gave her a asprin and put her in holding. I never knew how bad it truly was till I was in there over Easter weekend. Besides the fact you eatin shit, you not allowed to wear panties(unless you buy them), you not allowed to have a bra, you do gets ur mats taken away at like 5am or 6am and in tha new jail you sometimes didnt get it back until they were ready. That maybe 11pm. My mom said while she was in jail some1 actually turned Faulkner County in for maltreatment, but when the people came to check out the problems they had all the inmates outside sittin on the concrete and they didnt get to eat all day and when they got back inside everyones stuff was all over the place and the police had just thrown stuff everywhere and the inmates had to pick everything up to get their mats back. And even then the people who came to "survey" tha jail said thats how these people deseve to b treated. Tha system agrees with all this bs because they dont want "wrong doers" in socity. But you know there is a diffrence between people and animals, 99% of the inmates are not animals; tha gaurds and police who do this and let it go on are however animals.

I dont care who your sister is, I bet if you ran a redlight and got pulled over and the cop even suspected or wanted to meet quota you would be in jail. You probably wouldnt stay to long because you sound "to good" to be in a cage with animals, but even if you sat on that holding bench you would pretty much get tha just of things. I use to think just like you since I grew up talking to my mom through tha glass. Then when I went to jail my whole perspective changed. This is what you need to know, if you havent expericed it for yourself; shut tha hell up. You have no idea what your talking about. If you ever go to jail you'll wanna keep your mouth shut, because you are the type of person that gets beat in tha middle of the night and no one does anything.(p.s. your loving protecting police friends will be sitting up there behind their table laughing or sleeping while you get what you probably asked for!) Have a good day and remember what I said now!

She can expect to be treated like everyone elese. I dont know if shes going to Faulkner County, but when I was in jail; a girl was 9 and 1/2 months prgnate, she got extra milk and she got to keep her mat all day. She wasnt alowed to lay down or they took it. Its basically the same except for those two perks.

I seriously doubt that you ever thought like me about anything. Clearly your experience on the wrong side of the judicial system is much more extensive than mine, thank goodness. I happen to pride myself in not having any direct personal experience in that area and I don't believe that is a bad thing. The bragging nature with which you post your comments is a bit disturbing. Do you honestly believe that being placed in jail should be a pleasant experience? The bare minimum, the bare basics are all that are required. No one is required to be nice, they have a very specific job to do with very specifice requirements. Those officers and jailers don't make up the rules, they just enforce them. There are no "quotas", you do realize what year we live in correct? You are the only person that referred to anyone as caged animals. It's actuallly quite sad that your experiences have led you to be someone that can't even respect another persons opions or even be accurate in your recount of what they have said. Maybe your attitude and inaccuracies have led you to some of these experiences. Just stop and think.

My friend's daughter is 13 and is at the Faulkner County Juvenile Detention Center. Can anyone tell me if I am able to send books or magazines for the child to read? I don't want to break any rules or get her into any trouble.
Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated. Poor kid is going to be in over Christmas and I really want to try and do something that is allowed for her.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

I wouldnt feed it to any animals!!! come on now if we had rice for dinner or lunch we had it the next day for breakfast!!! They feed everyone too much starch which makes your stomache swell and cause you to have troubles useing the restrooms. The officers most of the treat you like your nothing not even worthy of speaking too.They treat you less then human!!!I seen so many distruping things while i was in there for 2 weeks. Like people who have mental and physical challenges they dont even help them out, like one girl had like 25 seziures in one day, they checked her blood pressure and gave her and asprin.She was ill and they did nothin.It is so cold in there and they take your mats away at 6 am and your blankets you dont get them back until 7pm.. you eat at 5am then 10:30am and dinner is at 3:30pm and you get maybe two hand full of slopp to last you for 14 hours come on now that is terriable..I know that it is meant for all of us to learn our lesson but does it really have to go that far.. No pictures i never did recieve any of my mail while i was in there.I slept on the cold and hard floor the whole i was in there.... Something needs to be done.
Oh my that is my wife you are talking about with the siezures. I got chills reading this story. She told me about the time she was there and they did nothing for her but what you said even after her family tryed to get her medication to her. She still suffers from epilepsy and MS and can not believe this outragious treatment goes on in there. I suggest writing our local congress Rep. and do something about it.

I have been looking for information on Faulkner County Jail procedures. I googled and came across this discussion board. I have a female friend that was booked in there on the 18th. I don't have a landline, so I know she can't call. I'm not even sure if anyone has put money on her books. I want to help her out, and I want to visit her. I sent her a letter today with a landline to call collect. I'm not sure when she'll get the letter. I live in Hot Springs, and it usually takes a day for a letter to reach Conway. But I don't know when inmates get their mail. Anyone know?

I was told visitation was on Tuesdays and Thursday for women. Also I was told to call 24 hours in advance. I heard visitation is only 30 minutes; is that true? As I said, I live in Hot Springs. It takes an hour and a half to drive up there. It seems a little short to me.

Since you can't bring anything, I guess I'll have to put some money on her books. You have to pay with a money order or cash I suppose.

One more question. She is awaiting a probation revocation hearing stemming from a felony hot check charge in 2007. She moved to Texas and wasn't reporting I was told. Her original sentence was 48 months of probation. They had to extradite her back up here. What are the chances she will get jail time or sent to prison? She has only one that one hot check conviction. She has not other prior offenses. She's 39, a single mother, and I know she doesn't use drugs or abuse alcohol. She just moved to get a better job. I know she screwed up, but I am worried about her. So what are her chances?

I appreciate any information you can give me. Thank you.

I was in there for 10 months, i was locked up with a Walker from Orlando, so if ur refering to his homeboy barber than i just want to say that i feel you. Me and walker became very close in there and i feel like his brother. i write him weekly and i feel like they got fucked bad in there. everyone is treated like crap in there and it is bullshit that they wont allow you to have pictures in there. well i just saw ur name and ur town so i thought i would reply to your comment. i hope everything works out with him and he doesnt end up like the other two, because they are gone and they didnt deserve all the time that they were given by Faulkner [email protected] .com

Yes, he did something that consequented in him not being able to see them in person, and he's well aware of that. But the least they could do since they act as if they can't take him to court is let him recieve pictures. I just can't wait until he gets out. Because I heard they beat the inmates to a bloody pulp and the food they give them, a dog wouldn't even eat. Mistreating the inmates is a selfish and unjustly act. Punishement was the sentencing and time their supppose to do. Not what goes on in the jail house. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.

yeah its true thay do get their mail everynight except sundays and holidays. visitation is tuesdays and thursdays for women. i was in there for 10 months, my wife came all the way from texas to bring my two sons, one of which i never saw because he was born a month after i got locked up, they still only gave me 30 minutes to see them. You can only send money orders for them, thats all they accept. If you have a cell phone, u can set up an account through city tel coin, or you can send her 23 dollars for a phone card. as far as her charges you never can tell. Conway is a very messed up county some people get off easy and some get railroaded so all you can really do is hope for the best, hopefully she will just have to do her 60 in TVP for violated her probabtion, since she didnt catch a new charge that should be all they do to her, but you never know with Faulkner County.

your an officer huh, well ur job sucks lol are you at unit one or two? and you should still give me the pictures, there are even more sick people in prison but we still got pictures in there. You officers dont realize how hard it is to be away from your family and how much a single picture means to you in a place like that. I know we are in there for the stupid things we did but still a picture means more than you will ever know. Anyways i made it through 10 months in that sorry place and one thing good i can say about Faulkner County is that it made me never want to do anything stupid again, lol.
