I sent an inmate a letter and pictures thru inmate aid. It said it would be delivered by 11/30. Today 11/30 it says mailed. Does that mean it was mailed to the jail today or delivered to them today? How long before he gets it? Thank you

Ask the inmate answer
Letters are processed immediately upon entry unless after 6pm on Saturday, those letters will process Monday morning. We estimate that it takes 2-3 business days to make it to the jail. Once there, the staff opens and reads each piece of mail and inspects it for contraband. Once they decide the mail is fit to be handed out at mail call, your inmate will receive it. Any delay that occurs at the facility is out of our control. We make no guarantees as to how long it will take as there are thousands of facilities and none of them do things the same way. There is no way that the will be delivered the same day you buy it.
