Telford unit is bad. My husband has been there for seven years. And the guards do mess with the inmates. My husband is Hispanic and they like to call him all kind of names that I cant say. He told on the guard and then he got in troble go figure.

I woud like to tell my friend, Joesph L. Saddler, to be strong and to keep his head up. I'm praying for him and to let him know that I can't wait until he gets out of there. We miss him alot and we hope that he is well.

Here's a little tip of advice, DON'T do the crime if you CAN'T do the time! If you, or someone you know is in jail at all, then they shouldn't be complaining! Grow some balls, be a productive member of society and QUIT WHINING!!! The majority of offenders in Telford are just there to do their time and go home. It's the idiots that make it hard on everyone! Then again, if they would have acted like adults to begin with, they wouldn't be in jail!

For those that have served in Teleford.. do you know Seth Shellenberger?
As for Atip.. shut up.. those that have been in there have done their time.. you must have some interest in Teleford or you would not be on this site.
