Texas Inmate Locator

By Texas Magnum

Use the TDC Texas Inmate Locator to find family members or friends within the Texas Prison system. This is a really great tool that is part of the Texas Department of Corrections’ website. When your loved one or friend has first gone off for intake to TDC, it can be a very stressful time, not only for the incarcerated, but for the people left on the outside. Not knowing where your loved one or friend is, and if they are OK can be scary. Intake is usually completed and the inmate is sent to a transfer unit or an ID unit within 2 to 3 weeks from when they leave. Once they are at their destination, the Texas Inmate Locator will find them in the database.

You can learn the Texas inmate’s location as well as their estimated release date with this tool. Enter the Last Name, First Name, race and gender and hit search. It can take a minute to search the entire database of Texas Inmates, so be patient. But, after just a bit, the inmates information will come up, including the date of their projected release.

          • Texas Magnum says:

            Charles Edward Mack does show up on the TDC inmate locator. His TDC # is 01170609 and he is at Michael unit with a projected release date of Oct. 2017. Good luck to you and him. Peace ~ Magnum

        • marie says:

          My brothers release date is today but a county in Texas has a hold on him, where he will most likely get time served. I would like to be there when he sees the judge since I will be taking him home with me. How can I find out when this transfer might happen?

          • Texas Magnum says:

            Hi Marie, if your brother’s release date was today chances are he has already been transferred to the county facility where they have a hold on him. Try calling that county jail directly to see if you can get info on whether he shows as there. Good luck to you, and your brother. Peace.

      • Rusty T says:

        Know the feeling although my ex isnt in prison yet and had the children since 08. Write the attorney generals office it may take a minute but so worth it. They knocked back child support off of my case that occured during my incarcitation. Almost $30,000. Contact them and ask for a review of the case

  2. Dusty says:

    Could you please contact me with my son’s father Jeremy M. Lydicks Release date?

    Thank Dusty

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Dusty, on the left side of the site under Links there is one that says “Texas Prison Inmate Search”. Click on that and the TDCJ Inmate Locator tool is available.

      However, I just checked for you, and this name is in the database but does not have a release date listed.
      You can keep checking back and maybe one will appear there soon.

      • Melissa says:

        I just want to know how I could get my father Gilbert Garcia to go for parole again if u please let me know stank_jack4ever@yahoo.com I’m him only daughter an I’m trying to find anyway I can help him

        • Texas Magnum says:

          Hi Melissa, really there isn’t much you can do on your end, it’s up to the parole board to set parole hearings and make decisions on them. Once he has a parole hearing coming up you can prepare a packet with a letter from yourself and other family members and send it to the parole board for their consideration. Good luck to you and your father, just keep in touch with him until he gets out – those letters mean a lot. Peace

  4. Raisa Soto says:

    I would like to konw the release date for my brother Marcial Soto G # 25609-038

    • Editor says:

      Raisa, that doesn’t look like a Texas Dept of Corrections inmate number. Where is your brother incarcerated?

        • Editor says:

          Raisa, I found this information –
          To locate an offender within the Massachusetts Department of Correction you will need the following information:
          Offenders Last Name and First Name and/or Committment Number
          Then call (877) 421-8463.

          I suggest you give them a call tomorrow, hopefully they can help you out.

    I would like to know the relase date of someone who’s in middleton.when I look it up dosnt say a release date..

    • Editor says:

      Hello Somer, So, it sounds like you WERE able to locate the person, but no Projected Release Date was available? Did they just recently arrive at Middleton? I think that your best bet is to just keep checking back regularly, until TDC gets one posted. I am sorry I don’t have more information for you but it might take a little bit for a date to appear.

  6. thanks for the info on my son brandon it was helpful i didnt know know where he was he hasnt written me this helped thanks again carmen..

  8. alejandra says:

    ive been using this site to keep track of my son and husband my son is out but I just checked my husbands he was in el paso now it says huntsville does that mean he gunna be out soon?

  9. Don jeffery says:

    im checking to see when my brother is getting out his name elijah jeffery #1024829

    • Editor says:

      Hello Don, It looks like your brother became eligible for parole in 2009 but no parole release date is present. This probably means that he was denied parole at his last hearing. Right now his release date of 2019-12-08 reflects the full sentence.

      To keep yourself updated, just put his inmate number in the field for that and submit, and you will get the latest details. Best of luck to you and your brother!

    i would like to know if Mitchell Dyson has got parole yet

    • Editor says:

      Hi Mindy, this is the Editor of this site, who makes the posts for Magnum who is in prison. I checked the TDC site, and Mitchell is not up for parole at this time. Currently his case shows that he just became eligible for parole. This means that within the next couple of months he should have a review, and then they will make a decision to parole him. His projected release date shows as 2014 but that is probably the “worse-case scenario”.

      Have you ever visited http:www/prisontalk.com, specifically in the Texas section? If you have not, you might check it out, they have a lot of very good assistance and support there, all run by the family members and loved ones of inmates as well as those who have previously served time.

      Best of luck to you, and to Mitchell as well.

  11. Tiya says:

    I was trying to get information on the eligibilty for parole of my fiance Kendrick Fortenberry SID#:07505868 TDCJ #: 01747044 I see there is a date listed but how can I find out if that date is actually the date he will be released? Does wrirting a support letter really have a positive effect on the parole board as to letting him out on the parole date listed, if nothing but positivity is available to him upon release?

    • Editor says:

      Hi Tiya, the date listed on the TDCJ website is the projected release date based on the “short time” which is the calculated amount of time the inmate needs to serve to satisfy his conviction. If you click on the inmates name, you will see that there is more details, including the parole eligibility date. In your fiance’s case, he is eligible for parole on 2012-02-22. That means that sometime shortly after that, maybe a few weeks, he will have an interview there at the prison, and then they will submit his case for review.

      Once he has been interviewed and his case is sent in for review, there is a Status Number you can call to get a status update. You can call (512) 406-5202. They will either tell you the case is still under review or they will tell you the parole decision, either denied, set off, or approved, with what conditions. It can take MANY calls to finally get an answer, be patient.

      It is helpful to send support letters, the best is to send a support “packet” that includes letters from yourself, any family that can speak for him, possibly employers, neighbors, a minister, etc. Also you can mention where he can parole to, your house or apartment, etc. Here is a link to some really good information about preparing a parole packet. Here is a good link for information about what the parole review and what to include in your parole packet: http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=205005. You can also refer to http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=594 which has several other threads about parole.

      Keep in mind that once he IS approved, the approval can be an “F1″ or an “F1-R6″ or a whole lot of other classifications. Some mean come right home, some mean go to a rehab unit first, etc. Here is an explanation of the various types of parole. http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=222685

      I am certainly not a lawyer nor do I have any inside information, but simply based on your fiance’s charge and the date it occurred, it appears he has a fairly long sentence for it. My hope would be that he will be one of the lucky ones to move through the system pretty quickly and gets paroled on the first opportunity. They are overcrowded right now and move some people through pretty quick. Because his charge is a drug charge, his parole, if approved, may include a stint at one of the rehab units, this is pretty common.

      Currently your fiance is at Gurney which is a transfer unit, he will probably be moved to his “home” unit soon, or even be moved around to various units for awhile. Keep an eye on the locator to keep track of where he is. Also, you can always set up an account at http://www.jpay.com and once they have his TDCJ number, they will make sure emails or money you send gets to him at whatever unit he is at.

      I see from the date on the Locator that he was just sentenced less than a month ago. I know this is a stressful time while he, and you, gets used to everything. I hope this information helps, and that all goes well for your fiance and you while he gets through this.
      Take care ~ The Editor

  12. Clarissa says:

    My boyfriend was just transferredto the holliday unit in huntsville, can anyone tell me anything on that? Can he get letters right away? Does it really take 30days to get visitaion, and to be able to use the money put on commisary, and how soon will he be able to call? He should have already seen the parole board, but when he does how long does it really take to know if he is granted parole? Sorry for so many questions, this is just a touhg time, and I really need to know what were all up against at this point? He is only on a 2 year sentence and he went in as a trustee, is that really a good sign?

    • Editor says:

      Hello Clarissa, You can use the Inmate Locator found on the left side of the site to look up your boyfriend and get information about what unit he is in. Also, make note of what his TDC number is. Then, you can use JPay, found at http://www.jpay.com to send money to him. They keep track of where he is at based on his TDC number. You can also use JPay to write to him, it costs .44 a page, just like a postage stamp, and they will print out the letter in the mail room of his unit and deliver it to him. Generally, he will receive it the day after you send it, so it is a lot faster than mail. You can attach photos too, but I hear they are black and white prints so not so awesome. Regarding the parole board, you can call the hotline to get information about whether his case has been reviewed, etc. The number is 512-406-5202. The line is ALWAYS busy, just be patient and wait on hold. You will need his TDC number to get information. Regarding visits, yes, you do need to wait the 30 days. You can call the unit he is at and ask them if he is allowed visitors and also confirm you are on his visitation list. Lastly, I would like to recommend that you visit PrisonTalk at http://www.prisontalk.com and go to the Texas section of the forum. There is TONS of information there, and lots of helpful people that can let you know all the answers when dealing with TDC. Good luck to you and your boyfriend.

  17. cruvenna perkins says:

    hey i wonted to see if i could visit micah lazaro?

    • Editor says:

      Hi,
      What you need to do is first use this locator tool to find what unit Micah is at and what his TDC number is. Then you can find out the phone number and address for the unit he is at here: http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/unit_directory/index.html. Call the unit and ask them if you are on Micah’s visitor list. You can also write to him, be sure to put his TDC number on the envelope by his name. You will need his TDC number to do this. Good luck to you and Micah.

    i am looking for leticia cavazos i want to send her a letter i miss her so much can u help?

    • Editor says:

      Hi if you use the locator tool here and enter her name you can find her. Once you know the unit she is at and her TDC number you can send her a letter. Just add her TDC number after her name on the envelope and send it to the unit she is at. You can find all the addresses for the units at http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/unit_directory/index.html. Good luck to you and Leticia.

  19. Jamie says:

    I want to know if i can visit him or not. I haven’t seen my uncle for nearly 7 years. He was like a brother to me. Someone please help? No one ever told me what he did to be placed in jail and it would mean everything to me if i got to see him at least once. If i am under 18 years of age, is it possible to go to the jail with an adult who is not my parent but is a family member?

    • Editor says:

      If you use the Inmate Locator tool here and locate what unit your uncle is at, you can call the unit and ask if you are on his visitation list and request to come for a visit. They will give you the proper information. If you are not on his list, then you can write to him, using his TDC number and his name and send it to the unit he is at. Ask him to add you to his visitors list.

      One of the best things you can do to help your uncle is to write letters to him, inmates really appreciate getting correspondence from the outside world as it helps them feel less lonely and lifts their spirits a lot.

  25. Isaiah says:

    I understand alot of privalges and rights are taking away in jail , but why take away natural design for male and female there will be failures in society but some of them are now bad like murders rapicts child molesters. I have a friend stuck with 28 years and he hustled what was brought over the border his wife drives 400 miles every month they should have protected sex the prison crime rate would drop drastic and some people have money on books. It’s horrible other country’s let men be with a women (nature) Texas allows homosexual activity such as selling wigs bras and even lip stick and soon aids will destroy Medicaid in prison I’m disgusted at the gay engery they allow.

She has a 4 yr. old son who needs her badly! Thanks to those who inform me of the direction I should take.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      You should be able to locate her using the TDC Inmate Locator on this page. Enter her name and TDC number if you know it.

  27. tameika says:

    if someones release dat was say in july but they came up for parole will they update their release on this website so that i will know exactly his release date is now.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Not necessarily… my release date was updated once I saw parole, to a closer date. But, my ACTUAL release date was about 6 weeks before the date on the inmate locator, and it never was updated properly. In Texas, the best bet is to call the hotline and ask them for the release date, once your inmate has been reviewed by parole. They are very helpful. Sometimes you have to stay on hold for a minute, but once they get on the line, you provide the inmate TDC number and the name, and they will tell you. The number to call is 512-406-5202. Good luck!

  28. karina says:

    my mom is in jail , she was in TDC ,
    she was supposed to get out but another charge came up
    i payed for her bond but they wont realease
    her cause TDC has her on hold .
    what does it mean by “on hold”

    • Texas Magnum says:

      I am sorry to hear that. “Oh hold” means that before she could get bonded out they found out that TDC has other charges against her. Was she previously in prison with TDC? Or, was she on probation and did not complete it successfully? If so they could have issued a warrant for her to serve the time from that charge. I wish I could tell you more but I don’t think she is going to be able to bond out until the situation with TDC is cleared up. That could mean any number of things so you will really need to get some more information if you can. Do you go visit or talk to her on the phone? She should know what’s behind it.

  30. Hi, my name is Angela. I have 2 sons in prison, Paul. Perry & Holden Perry, as well as my husband Shane Hickson. I wanted to say thank you for all the information & questions you answer. I have a site on FaceBook, Angels For Inmates (can also be found on Angela Angel Hickson fb page) where myself & daughter help inmates find pen pals. A free service. We like to post help for families & welcome any post on either page from families & friends who need help, rides, just want to post a picture or poem, or leave a message for the person they miss. I would like to know if we can post information how to get to this site & to also let caring people know we are always in need of pen pals. You are doing a wonderful job getting information to families & loved ones & even answering questions. We need more people in this world who care instead of only judgemental people putting all inmates into one category of “bad” people. You are loved & cared about. Much love, Angela with Angels For Inmates

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Angela, thank you. Yes, you can post it in a comment on the blog or send me the information at rivers@intexasprison.com and I can make a post about it.

    I need to know what was my son time given , was told by lawyer 7-8 mo. And he should come home????? Kenneth Robinson I’m looking to see him soon I miss him , love mom

  39. cheryl robinson says:

    I’m wondering , why parole denied, kenneth ,lawyer said 8-9 mo. So how much time did he sign, I need him outta there….

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello Cheryl, there is no telling why his parole was denied. Do you write to him and does he write to you? When he was denied they would have reviewed his case, as well as his behavior and progress since entering prison, and make a decision. Sometimes it’s as simple as the state is requiring him to take certain classes while in prison, and he has not been able to complete them yet. Many times this is not the inmates fault, as the classes can be filled up before he can get in. Also, if he got in any trouble while in prison, etc. this will affect his parole.

      One thing I will say is my lawyer was NOT right when they told me how much time to expect. In my experience and what I now know, lawyers may know how to manage the court case and what the sentence will be, but they don’t know anything about what really happens or what time will be served once the person is sent to prison. So don’t count on what they said.

      If you want to learn more, one good resource is a site called “http://www.prisontalk.com“. Go to the Parents and Family forum and read up some there, also there is a Texas section with a lot of good information. Good luck to you and your son. ~TM

  40. Texas Magnum says:

    Cheryl, if you use the tool up above and put in your son’s information you can find out where he is and what his projected time is. There are multiple Kenneth Robinsons in the system so you will need to enter the information and see which one he is. Also, if he is still in county jail, after sentencing and waiting for transfer to prison, he won’t show up in this tool. Hope this helps and best of luck to you both. ~TM

  41. joseph l vega says:

    Trying to find out if they moved him yet still says hes in gurney can you let me know or is there a place closer to dallas then huntsville checked but they dont have him is it because of his sentence or not its my nephew joseph m meisenbach

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello Joseph, Yes, the Inmate Finder still shows him in Gurney. In my experience it is usually pretty up to date, so he is probably still there. It can take awhile for him to get to his home unit. There are units all over Texas, some close to Dallas, but they don’t put the inmates in places close to their families, so it’s just a matter of luck if he ends up close or far from you. Good luck to you and your nephew. ~TM

    Thank you for the help

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Brandy, it looks like he isn’t in the system yet. That isn’t surprising, it can take 2-3 days and you are just now hitting that. Are you familiar with JPay? It’s a way to send money to your inmate. I have found that many times http://www.JPay.com will show an inmates location and TDC number quicker than the TDC Inmate Locator, when they are moved. This is just hsi sentencing though so it still might take a couple days. Just stay calm and keep checking, he WILL show up. Right now there are 4-5 people already with that name but none that were just sentenced on the 30th. Look at the details and you will be able to figure out which one he is when it gets in the system. Good luck to you and Gil. ~TM

  52. joe says:

    I am trying to find out what facility my wife Perales, Sherry is located at. My family and I have had no contact from her in over a week, since she was trabsferred from Smith county into TDC. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated and help put our minds at ease. Thank you

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Joe, Sorry it took so long to reply. I bet by now you have located your wife, but the TDC Inmate Locator shows she is at Dawson, and that she will be eligible for parole in late November. You can put in her last and first name and the details come right up, in case you need them. It would be good to start on her parole packet soon. You can find information about preparing a parole packet at http://www.prisontalk.com, go the regional section for Texas, then under Parole, and there is a whole thread dedicated to how to prepare a parole packet. Good luck to you and her.

  53. Heidi says:

    Ok i was wondering what happened to welester ulises lerma-perez he was charged with murder was incarcerated in harris county jail but is no longer there how can i know where hes at??

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Heidi, I was able to locate that name, he was sentenced on Aug. 20 to 40 years for a conviction of Murder. He is at Garza-West, but he might end up getting moved from there eventually, because it is a transfer unit. His TDC Inmate number is 01806492. He will be eligible for parole in 2031. You can write to him by putting his name AND HIS INMATE NUMBER (This is important) on the envelope, and send it to Garza-West, 4250 Highway 202, Beeville, TX 78102. Remember, your letters will be read by authorities before he receives them. Letters are so important to inmates, they help us a lot, they let us remember home, and the outside. Receiving mail is one of the things we all look forward to. Best of luck to you and Welester. If you wanted to ever send him something, I mentioned a couple books in some of my posts that really helped me. One in particular is “We are all Doing Time” by Bo Lozoff. It has given MANY facing long sentences a lot of hope and a new way of seeing and thinking about things. Peace to you.

  54. Heather says:

    I would like to know where mark Gonzalez is

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Heather, I apologize for the slow response. It is impossible to say where Mark Gonzalez is without more information, as that is a common name in Texas. Use the TDCJ Inmate Locator, and enter not only his name but his birth date, and you should come up with it. If you don’t know his birthday, then use the locator with just his name and then use process of elimination to review all the incarcerated “Mark Gonzalez” and figure out by age, and what they are incarcerated for, which one is your guy. Good luck to both of you!

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello Jose, it does not appear that Monica Velazquez in currently in TDC, her name does not come up in their search tool. Is that her full name?

  57. Karen Gonzalez says:

    Hello iWould Like To Find Out The Release Date For Jose RuizGouea He Was Arrested On June 11, 2012 &’ iCant Find Any iNformation … Please Help !

    -thanks

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello Karen, This name does not come up in the Texas Inmate Locator, it’s possible he is still in jail awaiting sentencing. Have you checked the county jail where he was arrested? That would be the first step. Good luck!

  58. Karen Lee says:

    My nephew was moved to TDCJ I was wondering what is the address there for his family to write him # 01813889. Please let us know something.Thanks

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Karen, thanks for your post. Your nephew is in the Lindsey Unit.
      The address is:
      Lindsey State Jail
      1620 FM 3344
      Jacksboro, TX 76458

      Be sure to include your nephews full name and TDC Number on his correspondence, as well as your name and address on the return. And, do not send cash or any other items, and be aware that all mail incoming and outgoing is scanned for inappropriate content. This basically includes mention of criminal activities, gangs, etc.

      Best of luck to you, your family and nephew. Hang in there!

  59. Joy says:

    I heard that my step-dad was in jail and I want to know where. His name is Gustavo Esteban Moreno Sr. I need to find him.

      Hi Joy, I located your stepdad. I have sent you a private email with all the details. Best of luck to you and your family.

  60. Pete says:

    POSS CS 1-4G WIT DEL, what does this mean? Also i am looking for my cousin. I have a number to identify him but apparently not tdcj. The number is 60235279. What is this number and where is he located? His name is Ernesto Castillo. Please and thank you!

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Pete, POSS CS 1-4G WIT DEL is shorthand for “Possession of between 1 to 4 grams of a controlled substance, with intent to deliver” which means your cousin had that amount of a controlled substance and they believe he meant to sell it (which is worse than just having it for personal use)

      There are 4 Ernesto Castillo’s currently in TDC, it’s not such an uncommon name. If you have his middle initial or date of birth, it will narrow it down. None of those currently incarcerated are showing the charge you mentioned. Also, you are correct, that number is not coming up, it could be his county jail ID number.

      It is possible he is still in county jail, awaiting his sentencing. It can take a long time. You might check there, and see if you locate him.

      Hope this information helps, and best of luck to you and your cousin.

    I was looking for an inmate name Pedro Chavez thats locked up in Middleton unit….he was born march 30, 1980…..he should be out already but not sure…what does TIME RELEASE mean….is he like in a halfway house or something

    • Texas Magnum says:

      I looked him up and found Pedro Chavez with dob of Mar 11, not 30, is that him? It shows “Temp Release” which can mean he was sent from the prison to another facility, like a county jail somewhere, on an outstanding bench warrant. In other words, if he was due to be released first they check all the outstanding warrants. If he had a warrant somewhere, they send him to face those charges wherever they are. If you call the prison they might be able to tell you something, or if you know of where he was staying before incarceration you might check the county jail for that area. Hope this helps.

  62. sandra says:

    i am trying to look form my daddy its been years since i have communicated with him since you can say i was 9 or 10 years old now i am 18 years old.
    his name is Luis Armando Garcia but unforntanliy i cant find him i put his date of birth age and nothing smilier of him comes out :( i miss him and wish to contact with him soon.

    Free my Daddy =/

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Sandra, I am sorry to hear this, it must be very hard to not know your dad’s whereabouts. I also used the Inmate Locator tool and like you, I did not find a person of that name. Could he be in Federal prison instead of Texas prison? If his offense was a Federal offense that may be the case. I hope you are able to locate him. Do you know what prison unit he was originally? Take care, and hang in there. I wish I had some answers for you.

  63. Hannah Hernandez says:

    Hello, I would like to know the release date of my boyfriend Travis Leighton.
    Thank You,
    Hannah

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hey Hannah, your boyfriend is eligible for parole as of 1/15/13. His projected release date is June, 2014. Has he seen the parole board yet? If so they will review his case and decide when he will be paroled, and under what conditions. This process can take a little while to get through, be patient. If you visit http://www.prisontalk.com, you can find the section on Texas and there you will find a lot of good information about the parole process. Best of luck to you and your boyfriend. Peace ~

  64. Colinda says:

    I know someone that was in prison and the information says Projected Release Date: 2007-08-25 Parole Eligibility Date: 2006-06-30 but under current facility it says temp release. He is out and has been a while. What does that mean where it says temp release? He said he was just released, no parole or anything like that. Thank you for your time.

    Colinda

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Colinda, usually “Temp” means he is “”temporarily” away from the unit he is housed at. This can be for instance, if he is due to be released and then he has some pending charge, even a misdemeanor, in a county court somewhere, they will transfer him to that county jail to deal with it.

      What is unusual is that your friend is OUT and it’s still showing Temp. This isn’t what you would normally see. If he is out, even if he were on parole, he won’t show up in the Prison Inmate Locator from TDC, his name will just come up blank. For this reason, I wonder if you are sure you have found the right person in the locator? If he has a somewhat common name, you might want to make sure you have the right Date of Birth to confirm it is him.

      The only other thing I can think of is perhaps the Inmate Locator just simply has some old information still stored for him, but that isn’t what you would normally see. For instance, I was released last March and my name stopped showing up on the Locator right when I was released. Hope this information is helpful, and best of luck.

  65. Elizabeth says:

    Hi, My husband was in the John Middleton Unit the last I heard. I know that he will probably be moving to another unit. I was wondering if he had moved to a new unit yet and if so where. I tried clicking the link to the left for inmate search but it never popped up to where I could search for him.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Elizabeth, the Inmate Locator will show right in the page on the site. You should be able to enter your husbands details and find him easily using this tool.
      Best of luck to you and your husband.

  66. Magdalena Garcia says:

    My nephew was just sent somewhere & i would like to find him. Phillip Scott Perry
    D.o.b. 4/3/89

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Magdalena, your nephew is at Garza West. That is a transfer unit and most inmates will pass through there but will be sent on to another unit as their home unit. He does show in the inmate locator as there now. If they move him, it can take a day or two to update, but if you mail him at Garza West they will forward the mail to wherever he is. Also, if you use JPay to send money or electronic letters to him, JPay will automatically update when he is moved somewhere too.
      Best of luck to you and your nephew.

  67. Angel Session says:

    Hi my big brother Gary Sessions #00670723 has an 43yrs sentence but been incarcerated for 21yrs for murder. And what I need to know is when is his next parole hearing? Do you know of any good affordable parole attorneys and how do I go about with the process?

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Angel, I really don’t have an answer for you regarding the next parole hearing. If he is eligible for parole and been denied before then they he will be told shortly before his next parole hearing comes up, and he can write and let you know as well.

      Regarding parole attorneys, I don’t know if “good” and “affordable” really fit in the same sentence. Many people don’t feel that a parole attorney is going to help much anyway. The most important thing is the inmate himself, they want to see him taking advantage of any offered classes or counseling, participating in anything they want him to, and things like church, AA, NA, etc. and of course, the number one issue is for him to stay out of trouble while incarcerated and not to affiliate with other inmates that can cause him trouble.

      Other than that, you can write to the parole board and express how you and other family members will support him when he gets out, for instance, that you will allow him to live in your home, or that a friend already has a job lined up for him, etc. The parole board wants to parole somebody that will have support to make it on the outside. After 21 years it will be challenging for your brother to find employment, a place to live, etc. That is why it’s important to show he has the support of family and friends. Best of luck to you and your brother.

  68. Julie says:

    Hi, my name is Julie & my fiancée Robert Wesley Nutt, d.o.b. 11/23/79, is up for parole on April 20th this year. He was just convicted on Feb. 28th & was only just transferred to Middleton the end of March. I’m so lost to all of this! I need to get a parole packet together, but I’m not even sure what all I need to send? I’ve even heard that you should even send pics so the parole board has a better idea of his personality and his character? He has a prior felony conviction back from 2004, back then he was dealing drugs, was caught with a substantial amount of meth, & had a firearm, so I know they will hold that against him? He was pulled over this time for speeding, it was his girlfriend at the time’s vehicle & she was with him, & the highway patrol decided to search her vehicle when Wesley admitted he was a felon. He found a couple joints, which were Wesley’s but he also found a couple extasy tabs which were packed away inside a box (she was moving & they were in transit to Colorado). He admitted to them being his, because she had her young daughter with them. That being said, (sorry for the long story!) do you think he stands a chance at making parole, is there anything I can do or say to sway the board, & do you think they will hold it against him because it is another drug charge? Wes really has done a complete turn around (except for the weed!) since he served his prior prison time…he had a part time job (it’s all he could find at the time), & has a big heart & always helped anyone in need & for the community in general. Anyway, thank you so much for your time & for all you do to help with this website!!

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Julie. Have you ever visited http://www.prisontalk.com? It is a very large forum that has sections for every state (and other countries even!). If you go to Prison Talk, and then go to the Texas section, you will find a whole section dedicated to Parole Preparation. It has some excellent sticky threads near the top with explicit instructions about preparing a parole packet.

      A few things to remember is to keep to the facts that the parole board will be interested in. Mainly, that you and your boyfriends family and friends can provide him with the support he needs. They will want to know he has a stable home to go to, and some kind of financial support or help while he gets his feet on the ground and gets a job, etc. If there is a possible job lined up for him, that will be excellent. If you go to church regularly and he will be joining you there once he is home, it’s worth mentioning.

      They truly see 100′s of parole packets all the time, so don’t send too much unnecessary stuff, they don’t have time for it. Photos won’t make or break it, but showing a photo of a decent home or family he will stay with won’t hurt.

      It’s almost impossible to say if he will make parole, on the one hand, the prisons are very overcrowded and they are paroling pretty quickly. On the other, he barely started his sentence and he is a repeat offender. My opinion would be that they will want him to complete some sort of drug aversion counseling in TDC before they grant parole. In my case, when I saw parole, I was mandated to finish drug counseling first.

      All the various levels of parole and what they mean are very clearly explained at Prison Talk. Also, you will find many people in the exact same shoes as you, who can offer a lot of good information and support. I strongly suggest you give it a try, it’s a very active forum. Best of luck to you and your fiance.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Trelanda, I am sorry I didn’t reply a lot sooner. I am sure you have gotten more information by now, but as you probablky know it’s very hard to say when someone will get parole, the best you can do is have a good guess at it and hope for the best. Hope he is out soon.

      Hello Salazar, sorry it took so long to answer. I am sure you have his address now, and I hope he is doing well and you are too. Best wishes to you all.

  73. Clio says:

    Hello, I have got a question: I had a pen pal named James Michael Richard who was at Hughes Unit until the beginning of September. He has got a life sentence and won’t come up for parole until 2034. All of a sudden, he does not show up in in the database anymore. What does that mean? When someone gets moved, his information is not being taken out of the system, or is it? Does this mean that something happened to him?

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hmm, I am not sure. I do hope nothing has happened to him though. I did a qujick search and currently there are 3 Michael Richards in TDC and none are at Hughes or coming up for parole in 2034. There is one that has a sentence until 2076, at Estelle, could that be him? I am sorry you have lost track of your friend, that is very frustrating and scary I am sure. DO you know any of his family or friends on the outside you can contact, or do you know his cellmate to write to him to inquire? Unfortunately, I doubt the prison will tell you anything at all. Best of luck to you, I hope you have found him by now. One other idea, you might try to look for him on http://www.jpay.com, the site where you can send money to inmates. Sometimes they do a better job of keeping track of inmates than TDC doeds.

  74. Rogers says:

    My husband is looking for his friend that was put in prison in the 90′s. We were under the impression that he would be released this year. We moved and lost contact with him, when I did a search on his name both came up as released. Any ideas on the best way to locate him so that I can reunit my husband and his friend?

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Once your firned has been released it’s really anybody’s guess how best to find him, although I personally know several inmates who got out and set up facebook profiles right away so they could look for their old friends and family. No matter what you think of facebook, it is pretty awesome for finding people from your past. It’s cool you are trying to track him down and I hope you succeed.

  75. Bob Thompson says:

    I have a problem with the tx inmate locator and wonder why.
    As a pastor I often start to write to men in county jails, in this case 200 miles south in Galveston Co to a Ronald Steel #176283 who was transferred to TDCJ somewhere for a four year term. I would like to continue this correspondence. He has been there for 20 days.
    But I cannot locate him until he writes me apparently. I have been writing to others
    incarcerated for periods of five years or more. We lock up more of our citizens than any other nation but then we tend to isolate them. The federal BOP does not isolate quite so much a Texas as I can find most on the BOP web site. Bro. Bob Thompson

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello Bob, It is kind of you to take the time to write to inmates, they really appreciate letters more than you can imagine. And you are right, the U.S. approach to incarceration is ridiculous and isn’t working. It’s a shame. I am not sure why you were having trouble with the inmate locator, but I found the person you were referring to. You probably already got this information but he is at the Smith Unit. The address is 1313 CR 19, Lamesa, TX 79331-1898.

  76. Brandi says:

    My husbands name is melvin mitchell 01850639 i am having a hard time trying to find out when he is up for parol?

  77. My husbands name is melvin mitchell when is his parol date?

    • Texas Magnum says:

      You may have gotten the information you need now but in a quick search I see that there are 2 Melvin Mitchells listed in TDC. One had a projected release date of yesterday, as a matter of fact. I hope that is the one you are looking for. The other has a date of August of 2014. You can look them up and figure out which one is yours by date of birth or race.

  78. Raylor says:

    My dad went to prison for 9 months and I want to know why. Can anybody tell me how to find out? His name is Eric Locascio. PLEASE AN THANK YOU!

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Raylor. I was away from the blog for awhile. I bet by now you have already found where your dad is. I looked up his name and he doesn’t show in the TDC database. That means he might be in County Jail, especially since 9 months is not a very long sentence. I know it’s long to you, but it’s not in terms of TDC time. Or, he could be in a federal penitentiary. It all depends on why he is incarcerated. If you still need help finding him send me a few more details and I will try to help. Peace to you and your family.

  79. laura says:

    Question my baby’s father got sentenced Aug 28th 2013 to serve 6 months in TDC. He signed for 6 months in TDC & 10 years probation. I searched him and his projected release date is Jan 31 2018th ? I’m nervous on why its saying that ?

    • Texas Magnum says:

      That doesn’t quite sound right. First of all, a sentence of 6 months would usually be in State Jail. State Jail sentences are for two years or less and are day for day, meaning there is no good time or early relase. But I haven’t heard of anyone having a TDC sentence for just 6 months in the first place. Regarding the projected release of 2018, well I don’t know without knowing more about the situation. If you want to send me another note with more details I will try to give my opinion but of course I am not a lawyer, just someone who has been there. Good luck to you and your boyfriend.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Alejandra. I imagine by now you have the answer to the questions you sent. You can visit your boyfriend if he has you on his list of people. I am sure by now you have the address to Garza West and have been writing to him, so best of luck to you and him and take care.

      Hi Tammy, I was away from the blog for awhile, sorry I didn’t have an answer for you sooner. I hope by nwo your brother is home and doing well. Unfortunately when it comes to TDC, they change dates, rules, and everything else they want without good reasons so we are really at their mercy when it comes to getting out. Peace.

  82. my fiance’ Jamie Tennimon was just transferred from Gregg County Jail to a State Jail Facility. How can I find out where she is? I tried the Inmate Locator Tool and followed the instructions but it says to offender with her name was found. I know for a fact she transferred on 10/29/2013 but don’t know where she is or what her State ID number is. I want to get money on her books ASAP and start planning to save for a trip to visit but need to know here location.,please help.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Steven, I had been away from the blog for a while, so sorry I didn’t reply sooner. I am sure by now you know this, but I looked up your fiance and she is in Plane State Jail. Unfortunately when an inmate is transferred it can take several days for TDC to update their database, and they won’t show up for awhile. It’s pretty messed up, butwwwJPay.com, the online site to send money to inmates, usually has their records updated faster than TDC does.

  83. Shirley says:

    Hi, I found out they approved my son parole but said he will not get out before September 1, 2014. That’s like giving him another one year offset. Why would they do that usually they are released soon as the address is approved where they are going. Sidney will not be coming back to el paso. Sidney R. Digbie 1221978 please reply. He has been in prison for 14 years. We really miss him

  84. Mónica Rodríguez says:

    hey i was trying to see if my sons father projected release date the day his getting out or is it sooner because i cant get any further information on him and i just want to be prepared cause my son has never met him before ricky gene isbell cid#1410511

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello Monica. I apologize for not replying a lot sooner. You may have found this information yourself by now but the TDC Inmate Locator says that Ricky Isbell has a projected release date of Feb 5, 2014. Those projected dates are not 100% accurate but that is his maximum sentence date so in his case it is probably going to be right around then. He is located at the Neal Unit in Amarillo. If you write to him include his TDC number on the correspondence. His TDC number is 01410511.
      Best of luck to you and your son.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Kris, I am sure by now you have figured out the monitor. I apologize I didn’t reply sooner, I have not been on the blog for awhile. Let me know if you need any other info, I do know something about having the monitor on and the whole process. I hope your husband is doing well and that everything is working out.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Shawni, sorry for the delay in responding. I have been busy with work and not here on the blog too much lately. I imagine by now you have heard from your fiance. It is very frustrating and scary when you first have a loved one in prison and you don’t hear from them. But, all these things can take a while. I hope all is well now and he is settled in to his unit and doing OK and yourself as well. Take care.

    I would like to know when Michael angel Lopez is being released? The Austin city jail site says he’s not in custody anymore but I know he is.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Chris. The inmate locator is now fixed, sorry it was out of order. But, there is one Michael Angel Lopez in the TDC system, his birthdate is listed as 9/24/86. Is this the person you are looking for? He is currently in Baten Unit. That is an ISF Unit which is where they send someone with drug problems. A lot of times they let the person out on parole, and they mess up and they send them there for 90 days or so to straighten them out, rather than return them to prison. It’s a prison though, just a drug rehab style prison. Anyway, they also sometimes send a person to ISF before releasing them if they feel they are at great risk for drug problems once they are released. Here is the information for Baten, you might be able to contact them and learn a little more. Sometimes these units have visitation. Good luck!
      Baten Unit
      1995 Helton Road
      Pampa, TX 79065

    I Am Looking For David Uceda

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Bibiana, I just noticed today that the inmate locator was temporarily broken. I have fixed it. I searched for David Uceda and he does not come up in the TDC records. Other possibilities are that he is incarcerated in a county jail, not TDC, or a Federal penitentiary. Sometimes if someone is sentenced to TDC they first spend time in county, waiting to transfer. If he was recently sentenced this may be the case. Best of luck to you.

  89. Mark Ryan says:

    I’ve been following the status of someone who killed my aunt in Harris County, Houston Texas. Last info I have is that a jury found him guilty on 9-25-13. Since then he’s been moved and I’ve been trying to find out the location. When I try the locator in the top left it says, HTTP Status 404, The requested resource () is not available. Is there any way I can find out what his sentence is and what prison he’s located? He is, Dean Jerome Wood SPN: 00279955, Thank you.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Mark, Thanks for your note. I am so sorry to hear about your aunt, that is a terrible thing and I am sure it has taken it’s toll on your family. By the way, I am glad you brought to my attention that the prison inmate locator was out of order. It’s fixed now. I looked up the individual you mentioned and I did find him. He is in the Michael Unit of TDC, that is in Tennessee Colony, TX. HIS TDC number is 01886087. His sentence is 94 years, he’s going to be away for a good long while. His projected release date is 2102, but his first parole eligibility comes up in 2040. I would think it would be denied, considering the charges and sentence, but of course I’m no lawyer. Peace to you and your family.

  90. Nikki says:

    I have a friend that’ was going to be transfer to tdc from dallas county not showing in the county system anymore but also Being trying to look him up on tdc system and his not there either any ideas on what my be going on with him please help????

    • Texas Magnum says:

      When an inmate gets his orders to transfer from county lockup to TDC there are several days where he is not going to show up on the TDC site while he is being processed. Typically he will first go for processing, then to someplace like Garza East while they figure out which unit he will go to, then to his unit. This can take several days and it really makes the folks on the outside worry while they don’t know where their loved one is. One thing I have found is that JPay, at http://www.jpay.com, which is a site where you can add funds to your inmates commissary account or send emails to them, usually updates their database even faster than TDC does. So, visit jpay.com and look for him there. But don’t worry, he is going to show up on TDC’s website in a couple days. Take care.

  91. Elizabeth Hayes says:

    I am trying to find out information on John Charles Zimmerman: first conviction 1977, overturned, second conviction 1979 also overturned. I have found information from 1988 about the second conviction being overturned but have not been able to locate anything from that point on.
    Victim: Ramona Ann Abner murdered 1977, she and I were childhood friends.
    Any information about the 1988 ruling and retrial would be greatly appreciated.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Elizabeth. I do not find John C. Zimmerman in the TDC database at this time, he is not currently an inmate at Texas Department of Corrections. I did a little searching and it appears to me that the conviction for murder held, what was not upheld was the death penalty. Based on this I would bet he stayed incarcerated, only did not face the death penalty. It’s hard to say if he was ever released or if he actually passed away while in custody, which does happen. I wish I could give you more information, sorry. Hope you find some answers, can you contact her family members?

  92. Mark Ryan says:

    T-Mag, I thank you so very much for your kind words and your time in collecting that information for me. I tried and tried but couldn’t get anywhere. 94 years sounds good to me. Thanks again, my friend. RIP Auntie Flora, we all love you!

    • Texas Magnum says:

      You’re sure welcome. The TDC system can be pretty hard to navigate if you’re not used to it. And I don’t suggest anyone choose to be “used” to the Texas Dept of Corrections! RIP to your Auntie indeed.

  93. Nikki says:

    Thank you the reason I was asking is because according to him he’s was sentence to 6 moth but he was already in the county for like 4 moths according to the lawyer he had like 45 day to be release he was transfer after 30 days from his sentence is it possible that the get transfer if they only have a couple of day to go..

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Nikki, yes, as strange as it sounds, this is the case. It sounds like your guy might have what is called a “state jail” sentence. This is usually for sentences of two years or less, and they are “day for day” which means if the sentence is for 6 months every day of that 6 months needs to be served. If his time to transfer comes up while in county, it won’t matter if he has only a short while left on his total sentence, they will ship him out and put him through the process of intake. It’s stupid because they spend money on transferring him and paperwork than makes any sense for just a week or two there. Oh well… sounds like he will be home soon anyway. Hang in there and tell him to stay out of trouble and away from the law once he’s home!

  94. Nikki says:

    Ones again thanks for your advised there’s also another weir thing when I go to the jail lookups for the county it doesn’t show anything when I enter his information but when I call the county over the phone it tells me that the book in# of the person I enter is being held at the dallas county jail but online it says no criteria was found that’s the reason I think his already transfer I’m not also how long does it take after there transfer for them to be able to make a phone call and how can I create an account to receive collect calls from the state I don’t think is the same system i was using for the county?????

    • Texas Magnum says:

      I agree with you, he is probably transferred and just not up to date in the system yet. Within the next day or two I think you will see him pop up. And, you are right, you will usually have to use a new phone calling system that is authorized for TDC. Honestly with the short amount of time you are looking at, I would be inclined to use JPay to send email correspondence and forget about setting up phone account because TDC and State Jail are a lot different than County and your inmate will not have access to a phone daily or even regularly like they do in County, especially at first. The way JPay email letters works is you write the letter via your JPay account like you are sending an email, and the prison prints it out and delivers it to your inmate like regular mail. Your inmate cannot reply electronically, he must hand write a letter and mail it to you. One thing all inmates enjoy is money for stamps and envelopes. In JPay you can also put money on his commissary account which is one thing you can do for him that will be very appreciated. Good luck. Don’t worry, time’s going to go by fast for y’all.

  95. Nikki says:

    We usually talk every day Thursday was the last day I spoke to him I had low balance on my phone account and what he told me was he had ask one of the guards if the we’re going to transfer any inmates to the state jail that day the guard told him yes did not tell him if he was on the list but he told me to check on line if he did not appear for me not to put money on my phone anymore but when I call over the phone they say his still bring held at the county but if I don’t have balance the call will no come tru I just don’t want to add money if his not there I just call not today and they tell the same thing his held at the county but doesn’t say the same thing on line I’m kind of confuse here??

    my moms out date is for February she has done 80percent of her time dec 2. 2013 who should I contact about good behavior and 20 percent? if it still counts.

  97. Stephanie says:

    hello, I was wondering about my mother she is in plane state jail and she has served 80% of her time on Friday December 5th. do u know if she will even get her 20 % her out date is Feb 5th,2013 her sentence date was May 31st, 2013. today is Dec 17 2013…. we really miss here especially my 7yr old sister.. if u can help me with any info id appreciate it. also how do they send those offenders home by bus or do they go back to county?? thanks for ur time.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Stephanie. The thing about State Jail sentences is that they are day-for-day, meaning she must serve the entire sentence. Now, there are some TDC inmates being HOUSED in certain State Jails, due to overcrowding in TDC units. And those folks fall under TDC sentencing. So, the question is, was your mother’s case a State Jail felony or a TDC felony? I could try to help you figure that out, if you don’t happen to know, if you told me what the charges were. Regarding how the inmate gets home when they are released, they will get sent to a completely different unit that is considered a release unit. For example, Huntsville. From there, if they do not have someone coming to pick them up, the State of Texas will give them bus fare. I hope this info helps and feel free to get back in touch if you want, about your mom’s charges and whether they are State Jail charges or regular TDC charges. Peace.

  98. rebecca says:

    My fiance has been in custody since May. He had his parole hearing in October, but we still have not heard anything back from the parole board. How do I find out if he made parole?

    • Texas Magnum says:

      It can take a while, but, I would think you would be hearing pretty quick now. If his hearing was mid-October you are at about 2 months out. Here is a link to some phone numbers you can call to get the status. You will need his TDC number for this. Also, be prepared for a wait on the phone, but they will tell you what the status is. They don’t know any details though. Good luck, I hope you get good news soon!

    • Texas Magnum says:

      This person does not appear in the TDC database. I am not surprised, based on his arrest date, he is probably still in county awaiting trial. You can check in the county jail that corresponds to the town he was arrested in. Good luck.

    i can’t find a friend of mine Douglas dean gatlin n i really need to find out where he I’d I’m very worried please help me locate him.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello, the TDC database does not show Douglas Gatlin as in their system. Could he be a Federal inmate rather than State of Texas?

    Douglas dean gatlin dob is 10-07-1978 please locate him for me

  102. Nikki says:

    Hi it’s me again found the person I was looking for also found out his sentence is a little longer then what we thought now need your help!!! On how to set up an account to receive call from state jail hopefully you can help me with these thanks in advance…

  103. Nikki says:

    Thank you so much for the Information I open an account with jpay and send E-mail I don’t really know how does that works is my first time I was goggle In yesterday and it looks like I have to register in order to receive phone calls is that correct?????

  104. Stephanie says:

    thanks somuch for that info on my mother and thanks for taking the time to respond through ur daily life…. I dont know whice felony it would b but u can look her up as maria ramirez her tdc number 01858… her projected out date says 2/5/2013 its for fraud but idk the detail will this help u find the info for me please thank u.

    • Stephanie says:

      correction on my mom’s out date 2014 not 2013 and her middle name is rios so maria rios ramirez thank u

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hey Stephanie, insurance fraud for that amount of money involved is a state jail felony. That does mean she will serve her sentence day-for-day and be released on the actual release date in February. Best of luck to you and your family, I hope you are all together again soon.

      Hello Luisa, there is not a person with that name and birthdate in the TDC database. There are a couple with other birth dates. Looks like he is not be in TDC custody, are you just trying to check all places he might be or did you think he was incarcerated? Good luck to you in your search. Peace.

    I am looking for an inmate by the name Anthony Kelly or AK here in Middleton unit please help!

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello Jessica. You are correct, Anthony Kelly is in Middleton Unit. I am not sure what you are asking, since you already know he is there, but you can write to him there, if you want to communicate with him. You should include his TDC number on the envelope. His number is 01873524.

  107. Amanda says:

    Albert daniels how do I find out what he looks like now. I am the victim and I don’t know what he looks like today and he gets out in two years. Can you help? I want to know what he looks like so that away , I know if he is around me. It has been almost 20 years and to this day he scares me. He is in the beto unit

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hello Amanda. Texas does not publish photos of inmates, like some other states do, so there is not a way for you to see what Albert Daniels looks like now. Have you looked into some sort of victim counseling for yourself? You went through something terrible but don’t let him have that power over you any more. Remember, over the past 20 years you have matured yourself, and learned a lot about life. I am sure you have become a lot stronger in every way than you realize. Hang in there, and live your life without feeling scared of him or anyone.

  108. Amanda says:

    I did counseling for a long time , the night mares never go away. However if I can protect my kids and know what he looks like, that is my concern. Can you tell me if you know when he is supposed to be let out for sure.

  109. Texas Magnum says:

    Hi Amanda, I am glad to hear you did some counseling. I am sure you have taught your children to protect themselves and be alert to dangers as well.

    Albert Daniels projected release date at this time is Sept 2015. That is usually somewhat accurate. But depending on a lot of factors, like if he got himself into some trouble in the prison in the meantime, he could be there longer, the maximum amount of time being until Oct. 2016.

    I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers, peace to you.

  110. Mark Ryan says:

    Hello again T-Mag, I see you are a very busy man but your help is so appreciated by all! I’m in need of your help, IF possible. First, are you only able to locate Prison inmates bcuz the person I’m looking for is for sure in a county jail. I’m going to give as much info as I have and hope for some Magnum magic. A friend of mine went to Texas to pick up her son in San Antonio but was stopped in Hudspeth County and arrested for a large quantity of marijuana. This occurred sometime after Jan. 13th, I don’t know exactly. So she’s for sure in a county jail but I’m getting nothing going through those locator sites. Anyway, I was hoping you can give it a try to see if you can come up with something. All the info I have is: Rhonda L. Morse, 48 white F. I know it’s a long shot but I thought I’d try. Thanks!

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Mark, well I located her. She is in Hudspeth County, you are correct. She was arrested on Jan. 15th. I don’t suppose it would be right to post on here all the details of where you can write to her, and the charges she has against her, but if you want to send me a personal email at rivers@intexasprison.com I will reply with the information for you. ~ Magnum

      Hello Vanessa, there isn’t a good way to find your fiance in county jail without knowing what county he is in. Do you have any idea what city or town he was in when he was detained? You need to check with the county where he was arrested to find out where he is. Good luck to you, I hope you find him soon. I bet he will send you a letter himself pretty soon.

    • Texas Magnum says:

      Hi Tyranny, if you check the TDC locator, he will show up within a couple days. he is probably already showing. Also, http://www.JPay.com which is a site you can use to send funds to your inmate, often shows up the person even before TDC updates their databases, so you might want to check that out too. Good luck.

  118. Tyranny says:

    ok I talked to his PO and he said that he is in Plainview however Im still not finding him any where.
