How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may deposit money to prisoner’s accounts by sending it by the U.S. Postal Service and Western Union.

The funds must be a money order that is made out to the inmate’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number.

    I spent 2 yrs. there. There conditions are horrible. In the mens non-sex offender section, lower floor, pod C. the CO there is a prejudice piece of work. It’s not our fault that his twin brother was caught up in a riot at Anamosa and raped/abused.!!! He hates all prisoners and takes his petty little brain problems out on the inmates every chance he gets.
    The winters/summers are terrible. In the winters you freeze because the windows leak so bad the wind just blows right in. We took wet towels and let them freeze to the windows to cover the holes.
    I had no problem with the food. The majority of the CO’s were decent hard working people.
