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!
-- yes, the idiots make it hard on everyone, n you r obviously one of those said idiots! Not Everyone in there is guilty, n even if they are, doesn't mean they r bad ppl. If u had a loved one there, I'm sure you'd think before u said something so hateful. I pray u find God, as He is the only One who has the right to judge. Good luck on your quest to be a better person, and God bless.

Your right.... Telfird SUCKS!!!!!! My brother kept getting harassed by the OIG ppl over a female there. Everytime they put him in the hole they could never find anything . He said that the female that they were accusing him of treated everybody with respect and because she didn't ride along with the shit they be doing they targeted her. So not only are the inmates getting harassed but some of the guards are too. The female no longer works there but he said rumor is she has lawsuit in against them for harassing her. I hope she wins.

My cousin is on that piece of a shit unit and he has a job on the kitchen squad. He writes home and calls all the time. He says that they only harass black and Mexican inmates, the same way they harass black guards. He said that there is this one chick who kept chasing him so he dicked her down. He said that she would stay after on her shift sometimes in the kitchen when he was on third and she was on second and suck his dick. Well she got moved to first and so did he, and now he says that he only gets to rub on her. He only fucks with her to show that other races do just as much as black and mexicans.

Not one person who reads or writes on this post knows the heart of anyone else. My son is doing time and is at Telford Unit. all the units are hard. some of it they bring on themselves,and some of the trouble comes from others. I have watched this for many years..I do believe this unit has many problems, administrative problems, from warden grounds all the way down........we should all pray for each other to get through this.
I agree warden grounds only cares about herself. I called her to let her know that my son was being harassed by a female guard in the kitchen name brandy and I talked to some lady name scott who says she was the supervisor in the kitchen. This brandy person has had my son locked up because he said he caught her and another inmate. I told warden grounds that if he gets written up one more time, I'm taking all letters to huntsville. This is crazy

I went to visit my brother on Sunday (last wk) and I noticed he wasn't his chipper self, I asked him was he ok and he told me that he wants to get out the kitchen squad because he is getting written up for dumb shit. I told him that I would call on Monday (last wk). I called and talked to some guy named Alexander I told him what was going on and he told me that my brother was a low life liar and that he wasn't going to move him. Well I told him that my brother showed me a picture of this female guard and her info. I gave him her name and he told me that he didn't believe me. I called Huntsville for help, no help there. If my brother parole gets f'd up behind this I will file a lawsuit.

My husband got shipped and I'm glad that he did. That is one the worst unit ever. The administration is retarded, the guards are dirty, they dnt get clean clothes sometimes, the food is nasty, that unit needs to be burned and rebuilt with better staff. My husband got set up by field law Arnold and when he beat the case, they got mad. If ur love on is there get them off that unit ASAP!!!!!

<quoted text>I have a relative in the telford unit and the guards write him fake cases and take his trays like he than ate but havent i dont like that place and i hope the governor shut it down because its a lot of dirty guards that work there been tryin to get my relative moved but they keep comin up with some laim lie ..i thought they moved the inmates if u no the guards ..
They are supposed to be moved but then again it goes bck to if u are a ass kisser officer. My uncle went to school with a certain officer, and use to spend the night at her mother's house. When he went to work for her she treated him like shit and told him if he ever tell anyone that h use to spend the night at her house that she would make his life hell.
