Do the facilities take money out of an inmate's account, if so why?

The facility where my husband is incarsated stopped taking out inmate fees when I order his care packs does that mean he has money on the books

Yes, if an inmate has court fees, a fine or restitution, the institution will deduct an amount that they deem appropriate (some arbitrary percentage) from the inmate's books. If they stopped deducting money, maybe it's paid back or maybe he has nothing in there. If he has money on his books and he still owes money, they haven't "stopped".
