Butler County Prison

Wyatt: Three to six years for the Manufacturing, and 2 years of probation for the stolen property.
Erica: I was sentenced 3 years of probation
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?
Wyatt: I was put in a holding cell at Butler County prison following the sentencing. I was in one cell with about 20 other people. There was no where to sit let alone sleep. We were forced to sleep on the floor. There was one toilet for 20 people, and it was overflowing half of the time. People who came in off the streets were drunk and withdrawing from drugs, and would puke all over the cell. All we were given for meals was cheese sandwiches and water. I lost almost 10lbs in those three days just from lack of nutrition and the constant sweating.I was sentenced at the beginning of summer, and the building was not air conditioned, making the smells even worse. I was kept in holding for approx. 72 hours before being moved to a cell block.
Erica: I was RORed and had three years probation, I went to jail on a probation violation three months after being put on probation, but when it first happened I had a warrant and sat in jail overnight and my parents bailed me out

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.
