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.
