The internet has been a huge source of information for my family and myself as I have faced this circumstance I find myself in.
ANYONE convicted of any crime or facing conviction, or family members of these folks, should visit www.prisontalk.com. It is an AWESOME site full of great information. Far more info on there than you will find on any State of Texas or TDC site. Real time answers and advise to your questions, delivered with compassion and valuable insider insight.
There is so much compassion and help to be found on this site. If you are the family member, girlfriend or boyfriend and scared about what is happening to the person you care about who has become incarcerated, visit this site and bookmark it.
Here is the link straight to the “Texas” section but the main forum has much good info for family, inmates, etc. and any and all situations you will encounter when you find yourself or your family member “in the system”.
