Does anybody know for sure about Dawson state jail in Dallas being taken over by TDC and the state inmates going baci to thier counties, or such. Many rumors are out there, bue all I see is TDCJ gae CCA a 7 year contract in Dec '11 for $164 million... sounds like business as usual to me. Thank You, Tony

I also keep hearing the rumors that Dawson State Jail, is turning into tdcj, and that the imates that have less than 6 months will be sent home, and those with more thn 6 months will be sent bak to their county jails to finish out their senence, Because their not being paid for the State Jail inmates. How can we find out if this is true? Ive made several attempts to call Dawson, but no one acts like they know anything, or that im a inconveience, and interuppted their sleep or their reality show!!!! Well, my tax dollars are paying their salary, and I wat answers!!!!

My fiancee is in Dawson and after reserching the TDC/some go home banter, it appears to be rumors that have cirsulated for several years. The good time bill will allow 38% off the sentence for things like completing a GED, but it appears to be wishful thinking. I want my Princess home and to get married ASAP and it would be nice, but I think everyone will just do the time and get our. The judge has to approve early release, so most of it is likely a pipe dream. I wish it were true too, and if it is, somebody show me - I would like to see it. we are wasting so much money incarcerating these people... waste of tax dollars and people's lives to make CCA $ and feed egos or idiots. My girl did absolutely nothing to get in there and is definately no threat to society... it is ridiculous. I am sure there are many stories like that. The guilty should be accountable, but our system is broken.

Not really, I live with an attorney and have some work on a jD degree myself. I believe it is wishful thinking. The judge would have to approve early release on an individual basis, but they might go back to county. CCA got a 7 year $165 million contract renual, so it does not appear TDC will take it over. Work the good time bill for early release.

looks like they colse Aug 31 and females will go o Woodman. Of course the state of Texas insists on wasting taxpayer $ keeping people in jail. How stupid this is, but it appears males go to Hutchins and females to to Woodman, no good time. Woodman is suposed to be very hot (no air) and they have a population of "youngstas" that have made holes in the wall of the showers to peek at the females showering. A friend of mine had his wife in there and confirmed those facts, no air, hot, no contact visits, males peek into female shower and also expose themselves. No big deal, just stupidity beyond belief, and they wonder why they can't get a dectent girfriend. It will be inconbient to visit from Fort Worth for me. I think it is in a rural area where no bus service goes. I hope you do OK, I can't visit at all there because I am blind and don't drive.
