Overcrowding

I am curious about the overcrowding at the women's prisons at this time. And what has been the time to spend at Dwight  before going to parent prison???

They will tell you upon receiving into Dwight that it could take up to 90 days to be moved to a parent facility.  Before the overcrowding the wait time was approx. 2-3 weeks.
There is no action better at creating insanity in a person than trying to control something you have no control over.

Only do whatever you are willing to pay the consequences for.
