what is life like in the woman's prison in Chillicothe Mo.?
It is much like most state facilities, minimalist meals and sleeping quarters. The worst part of incarceration is the boredom. The 1300 inmate Chillicothe Correctional Center is relatively new and has many recreational, educational and vocational programming options available. With the right attitude an inmate can gain a lot of knowledge if they are willing to put int the time. It is not considered a high risk facility but prison is still a serious place. Actually there have been more guard-on-guard domestic crimes there recently than with the inmates.
Here is a link to the MO DOC Family and Friends Guide to understanding the system.
