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.
