MY boyfriend is in Pinckneyville.  So, if anyone has any questions I'll do my best to answer them.  I have been to visit twice and plan on going again on April 22.  SO, far I have had no issues, however he DID call and tell me they to are no longer takin SS cards af a form of ID.  We have only have non-contact visits so, after April 22, I'll know more about how there contact visits are.

I have also been to Pville before. The contact visits are great, especially for those of us that haven't seen or TOUCHED our loved ones for extended times. It was almost 5 months gone by @ Cook County and Stateville before we got to see and hug him. Pville is very clean (compared to CC ) and most of the co's are nice. I'll be going back this Thursday 3/9. I'll let you all know how it goes

DG just informed me today and I almost forgot that they added music to the comminsary list.  At least he said it was added, I dont know if it was there before.  Just thought Id share that.  He did say that it's not cheap though.

Dworak~How did your last visit go?  When are you planning another trip?  I have yet to have contact visits (going for my first one on 4/23), what are the rules there for contact being non-contact I really never worried to much about them.  Also how are the vending machines there?  Only thing I ever got was a bag of chips for my son last time we went down.  Do you know/have you seen can the inmate hold the child on their lap?  Sorry I am asking so many questions.  I just dont want a repeat of our last visit (we thought it was going to be contact, it wasn't   :-[) and we ended up driving 4 hours for a 1 hour visit because my son wanted to sit on Daddy's (not really his dad but more of a father than his sperm donor) lap.....

Music at the commissary? As in, cassette tapes? How does that work? And do you know if they're doing that in place of ordering from Music by Mail or Pack Central?

DG- contact visits are great!!!! As I said before, you can hug and kiss at both greeting and departure. You can hold hands /arms the whole time (above the table). Your guy can hold your son. Babies and kids are there all the time. They have books and coloring books for him to play with. There are games and cards you guys can use. The vending machines are fine but very costly. The prices on the machines aren't right. I paid 1.25 for a roll of lifesavers that say .25. Don't worry about the DOC they are jacking it to all of us. He can't get up, you have to get stuff for him. Also just a n FYI, the tables have 4 seats attached to them, 1 has a I (inmate) 3others have a V (visitor) you have to sit in the seat directly across from him. They will not let you (or at least not me) sit right next to him, others can (mother, sister etc.) but not gorlfriend or spouse.Whatever!!!! At least you can touch him!~!!  Yippee........... Have a great visit, its coming up soon..

Doea anyone out there know anything about the new warden @ Pville? My inmate seems to think that he is (rumor has it) cool. The new rumors floating around there are longer yard time, weights and possibly hot plates? :)~ Do any of you think this is a possibility? More time out of their cells @ that place would be a godsend. These poor guys are out only about 2-3 hours a day. Any info on this warden would be great. Thanks

I haven't heard much on him.  But DG said a few CO's have said they will have free weights by June.  He hasn't said anything about more time out of the cells.  I think the time out has to do with the level of the prison (so thats prob. a long shot but we can hope).  Mail has picked up since he got there.  It only take about 3 or 4 day from peoria to Dg's hands.  So, I dont know...

Average visits are 4 hours and you get 5 a month only 2 weekend visits. I don't know where you live but its FAR so 5 a month is more than we use. Usually we go for the whole weekend, possibly a day before. Hope that helps

Finally asked DG about the music he was talking about at comminsary.  It is music by mail.  That was just added about a month ago to Pinkckeyville's comminsry list.

Visit went GREAT  >:)   Anyway DG said they have some wieght in the yard but that they have had those.  They are supposed to be getting free weights.  He hasn't heard anything on increasing yard time.  But we can hope. 

They did allow us to hold hands across the table off and on.  But it was weird to long and they told you to let go LoL.  Still didnt find out about the kissing....we kissed but didn't want to chance anything.  They were watching him because he JUST got his contact visits back.  Did not notice anyone french kissing though.  They did tell a couple to break it up (hugging to long).  They cut the visit right at 4 hours.  They changed gurads at 3 and they 2 that came in stuck to the rules alot more than the other 2.  One guy had a 5.5 hour visit and when the 2 new guards came in at 3 they ended stating you already got to long of a visit. 

Staff was all very friendly.  One CO helpe a few people with the vending machine when the sliding door got stuck and was telling people not to use a machine becuse it was wiping out peoples card (that stopped to with change of CO's).

I was asked to drive a lady friend to Pinkneyville this Saturday and need to ask information about the drive to that facility.  I know it's a long drive and it will probably take me about 4 to 5 hours to get there but I was wondering if anyone can tell me what to expect during this long journey.  What are the roads like and do I need change for tolls, etc.  Any information will be greatly appreciated.

No tolls around P-Vill just farm ground. It sits just outside of town to the east of it about 2 or 3 min drive.
