    I have been in WERDCC twice during my eleven years on a five year sentence. If you are not in the "hole" it is like a college campus. There is alot of drama between lesbians and the guards are all inbred family members. There are a couple nice ones. I will tell you that R and O is the hardest time there. That is when you first arrive. If you didnt have family it would be ok, even fun at times. If you do not have money you starve to death!!!!!!

    My niece is doing R&O right now, what makes it the hardest time, and what can she do to make the pill go down easier? Her mother will rest easier, the more answers I can give Her. Thanks for the heads up tragirl40 !!

    I went in on September 18, 2009 & left January 16, 2010. Like tragirl said R&O is the worst part. You're up early & they're constantly yelling something at you. After that if you can get a decent job (canteen was decent) or go to school, time goes by pretty good. Tell your niece to stay away from the lesbians & watch who she makes friends with (just like in the "real world") and she'll be fine.

    Default First Time Rollback

    My girlfriend is back on her first rollback, she has a couple of violations mainly association and one LAW. She is waiting to hear what the board is going to give her, I wish I knew what time she was looking at, I know it is tough on her but it is also tough on the family, any idea at what we may be looking at?

    All females receive pregnancy tests upon arrival. I've heard WERDCC or Vandalia is an awful place only because some women make it that way. I'm sorry that you have loved one's there. I pray they are safe and keep to themselves.

    this is true. MODOC doesn't allow corresponding of this nature. Sorry.

    Default how this jpay works

    I am trying to talk to a certain inmate that is incarcerated at the Werdcc in Vandalia Missouri. This is my first time on the site here and I would like to know what is going on with her and how she is doing. Hoping everything is ok with her and patiently waiting for her to get out so that we can share our lives together. Her name is Michelle Brandes. Can someone tell me what else I need to talk to her directly. Or does this site do that at all. Thanks in advance and hope to hear something soon

    I am a reporter who spent a year working inside WERDCC. Here is a link to the first of my stories. Please read at least the first and second parts because it is very disturbing.
