Lassen County Jail
1405 Sheriff Cady Road
Tyrone: I was never sentenced. I ended up spending four months in jail as well as another 30 days of required residency in a rehabilitation facility.
JM: Did you spend time in a holding cell after your sentencing? If so, what was that like? If you didn't where did they they take you instead?
Tyrone: I was put into a holding cell, as there were others who had come into the jail before me. The holding cell was cold, rather large and had only a cinder block bench to sit on. The commode was exposed to anyone passing by. I stayed there approximately an hour before being admitted into the jail.
Going to jail can be a scary experience. However, with the right information, you can feel better prepared for the day to day experiences of jail. We provide you with information from actual ex-inmates. These individuals have given information to help smooth out the process of going to jail, from sentencing to visitors and clothing in jail. While we can't promise jail won't still be hard, we can hope that the information you find here will help you make the transition as easy as possible.Where Does Our Information Come From?
The information you find on this site comes from ex-inmates of the jail. We spend hours and hours scouring the web to find the most qualified sources of information for day to day life in jail, people who have actually been there. The inmates have been selected to get the most accurate information possible. We choose inmates who spent significant time in jail and have been out as little time as possible. This means we can get you the best and most up-to-date insight into jail life possible.
