My husband always said the address didn't really matter cause people move and don't change their IDs. All the prisons I've visited they barely glance at my ID.

As long as you're dressed correctly and polite the staff at Pinckneyville are really nice and try to accommodate you. I just had our daughter 2 weeks ago as well. Unfortunately we're at Centralia now where he can't hold or really interact with her at all. So enjoy your visit!
