Lawrence Correctional
« on: February 04, 2019, 07:59:41 PM »
Hey

My son was transferred to Lawrence today. He received a 3 year sentence with credit for 270 days and will be home in October at the latest. What can I expect from Lawrence? How soon will he be able to enter programs? What is housing like? How soon can he shop? What's the fastest way to put money on his books?

I use GTL for trust deposits. My LO usually has the money in 24 hours and itís cheaper than JPay. Itís $5.95 for the first $100, $6.75 for $200 and $8.95 for $300. You can also email from the same account if itís available. Setup is easy. Go to www.connectnetwork.com.

Yes gtl is cheaper if they have the messaging at Lawrence, I forgot about that as a slightly cheaper alternative.
