Williamson County, Texas, also known as Wilco, is home to the Williamson County Jail. Williamson County has grown in population 57% from 2000 to 2010. An increase in population also means an increase in the incarcerated population as well.
If you're one of those that are unfortunately headed to jail, or if you have a loved one that is going to jail, it can be a scary experience - especially if you've never been to jail before. It's hard to know what to expect - will you get along with other inmates? What will the food be like? What will the living conditions be like?
Most people that have not been to jail want to have these questions answered, and we strive to answer them for you. We interview former inmates that know what life is like on the inside. We have their stories posted to not only help prepare people for jail life, but also let the families of inmates know what their loved ones are going through. While we are not affiliated at all with the jails, we do try to provide accurate information about life inside the jail.
