My friend was sent to Dwight April 14 and I have not heard from her. She did get 1 year, does anyone know about this 61day thing? She has never been to prison, only county. Does anyone know, or can u help me as to how she is being treated and her living conditions.

I was in dwight once. I actually just got out in 2008. She will be treated right as long as she shows the officers respect. As long as she goes by the rules and applys she should be fine. Now i aint gonna lie some of the officers are dicks but overall most of them r pretty cool. Depending on housing she could get moved onto grounds or transferred to another prison. if they are to full she will be kept in intake. All i can say is pray for her thats what she needs right now. I was 19 and pregnant when i was in prison and i did 8 1/2 months. I pray that everything goes well for her. Dont listen to the scarry stories you here because most of them arnt true. Good luck to you and your friend

Can anyone out there tell me what intake is like. My friend is still listed in R and C and she has been in Dwight over a month now. What are her living conditions like in RC. Even if they are done testing her and medical screening, is she in solitary confinement?

Intake is not really solitary,but it is they're housed 23 hours a day. They can only buy personals,no chips or anything like that. They get out for one hour a day to shower use the phone and stuff like that. It'll take a minute to hear from her.It took me a month and a half to hear from my wifey.
