    Default Branchville Correctional Facility, IN

    Well today VINE service send me an email to inform me of my loved had been transferred to Branchville after knowing he had been in RDC for only a week. That is good news.

    Only now, he needs to take classes and hopes to out of there earlier than Dec 2010 that what his outdate shows me.

    Anybody know of this Facility or have a loved one there?

    Yay! My ex is at the Branchville Facility. We are talking about getting back together...right now his release date is 2011 but hopes to get time cut so possibly June 2010...he says its not bad at all...he says its like summer camp! LOL~...i go visit him first week in October....i imagined behind a bullet proof glass talking to him on the phone...he said its not like that at all..we can kiss and everything...yay!...i use correctional billing services to talk to him so (i use my cell phone number) make sure u go ahead and set that up now...he has to turn in your phone number to be on his approved list there...and his visitition list may take 3 months to get approved....every time he changes a name its 3 months before the person can come and visit...and you have to fill out a visitation form to be approved...but other than that no big problems...

    Well Congrats to you. I hope everything works out. I am hoping to see my loved one at the end of the month. I have not talked to him in two weeks. I am in search for a good prepaid calling service. I have not set one up yet, however I am with CBS but i am blocked. I have looked at prisonlines.com. I may go with him. Does my loved one have to have my number approved on his list at this facility? Does that take long? I filled out an application form for visitation yesterday soon as I got his mail.

    Yes your number must be approved for you to call....it takes a couple of days for the approval....like i said...i use correctional billing services....and have had no problem with them at all...only thing about them is you have to put a minimum of $50 down...and its $1.50 for the first minute...then .25 a minute after that....

    do you how long the visits are? I was told you can stay all day with the inmate, is that true?

    I can't wait to visit my loved one. I filled out an application only now waiting for approval to visit.

    you can go once every 14 days and visits are 9am to 3pm everyday. if its not busy they let you stay as long as u want until 3pm if they are busy and they need you table they only have to give you an hour. vists there are nice you get to sit at the table w them n everything but they make u sit across from them and he cant touch u past your elbow (depending whos on duty some dont care)

    I finally paid my man a visit, It was a nice visit, I took a chance by visiting him on a Saturday (9/19), I surprised him showing up paying him a visit, It was a wonderful visit we sat for 4 hours, I thought we would cry seeing each other but no it was all smiles. It the most we talked in 4 hours, so it was very well worth it. Felt weird sitting across from him but that okay as long we got to hold hands - 4 hours of holding hands and was able to steal few kisses. But he says it better to go during the week when it not so busy. During the time I went, I got lucky. I can't wait to do it again, to visit him.

    Probably around Oct 8,9, 10th (one of those days).. not for sure yet. It only a 4 hour drive for me and it only an hour from his mom's house and only 45 minutes from his sister's house. Then again, it depends on my budget to when I can go.

    Reason you have not heard from him because he was in RDC before being transfer to Branchville. If you have a calling account set up and he has to get everything approved up front such his names of people that can visit him and phone numbers. He has to know the exact number he can use that been approved. If it another number it will not come through, so you need to write him to let him know you got account set up and the number to use to call you. If he got the kids added on his approval visitors list, yes I believe you have to have the kid BC (Birth Cert.) but he has to mail you all the necessary form before anyone can visit him that he got on his list.

    Default Branchville summer camp

    Disappointing to here branchville is considered a summer camp to prisoners. Victims are still suffering from what this criminal did to them. Hopefully his "dorm" buddies are treating him with the same respect he treated everyone with before incarceration. I'm sure the way he runs his mouth they are all fed up with hearing him.

    You seem to be a bit judgemental. R u serious? First off some of them arent in there because they are "victims" out there...Secondly...Branchville is one of the lower security prisons....lower security - crime was not as severe so their punishment wouldnt be as severe....and lastly....they dont have their freedom...they cant come and go as they please...they have 2 eat, shyt, and sleep when told so they are still being punished and paying their debt 2 society.....your comment was a bit offensive and unnecessary.

    This tiredofwaiting person sounds as if their talking about a specific person. What does "the way he runs his mouth" mean? Who is this person talking about? Listen, if your going to talk crap about someone, at least use proper grammar. If your talking about a whole population of inmates, then you use the words, "they" or "them". The way your speaking in this rant, it sounds as if your talking about a specific person; and if thats the case then you need to rant on that person and that person only. Please do not categorize every person who has been incarcerated into your ignorant generalization.

    I know that at MCF they dont allow any money to be sent to inmates unless you are on the list. The inmates can get in trouble if you send money and arent on the visitors list. Dont know about branchville though. I would call and ask to be sure first.

    My guy is in westville and I had to wait until I was approved before sending money through Jaypay or he would get into trouble... Call the facility and find out.. Goodluck and Welcome!!
