Yes they do. As you can imagine, the best classes are the ones that you show willingness and openmindedness to learn from them.

Subject: Inmate telephone calling
Depends on the three-way...:) if we are tlking about a 3-way call, then my advice would be to NEVER attempt it. The phone companies provide the prisons with the latest detection technology that sniffs out three-way calling. It is 100% against the rules of all institutions and loss of phone privilege for six months or more is the penalty. The people that get away with it do so for only a few calls before getting caught.

my bf is in a juvenile detention center placement in bellefont could i go vist him or call him on the phone? i miss him alot and just wanna see and talk to him
Juvenile offenders are only allowed communication and contact from immediate family members. That means mother, father, sister, brother or grandparents. We do not think they will allow "a girlfriend" to visit without some special permission from the director of the facility.
Subject: Inmate books and magazines
I sent books to my friend in florence correctional center via AMAZON. But they were returned. I want to send some books to him. which online shop are available? Thank you for your attention.
If the books were returned we would not try sending them again. Amazon is the only way prisons will accept books (if they changed their policy, we were not aware). You could get the same effect sending some magazine titles that fit your inmate's interest. If you want to send some magazine ubscriptions from InmateAid, send us an email at email@example.com and we'll send you a coupon for 1/3 off all you buy.

My son is in the hole. He said he was scared for his life that a gang wanted to hurt him i am so scared that he is going to get hurt what can i do
If he is in the hole, he is safe. The hole is used for disciplinary reasons but also for protective measures, too. If he told the staff that he was scared for his life, he basically asked for help, to be "checked in to pc", or protective custody. He is likely to remain in the hole for the entire sentence unless they transfer him.
