    My Son is 20 years old, from Florida and followed a friend to New Orleans, fell in love with a drug addicted 27 year old stripper and ended up in your jail for so many months now I cant remember. He was charged with Criminal Damage and Unlawful Entry. When I called and offered to write a letter to the judge I was told "Honey that aint gonna help you down here!" My sons name is Cody Phillips and he cannot pay restitution as long as he is behind bars in a louisiana cell costing louisiana tax payers money to feed and shelter him. What he needs is to come to Tallahassee and start a new life with his mother and a church family and God that can save him. He is hardly a hardened criminal - yet.

    St bernard parish jail is the worst food ever. Mid america services makes thousands of dollars of taxpayers money because the sheriffs department doesn't employ a regular dietician and they serve the lowest grade of food possible. please help! inmates are human not animals.

  3. iCare alot Mon, Oct 31 2011 10:48 PM

    St. Bernard parish jail needs to be looked at by our government. They hardely feed them. Take money from there money orders. Don't give them nothing to sleep on. Not to mention the abuse the jailers putbon them. The men have it the worst. I know from a family member the male jailers are asking the women for sexual favors. They treat them like animals!! Somebody hire up needs to come in and see how they have these people living. Oh! Not to mention they beat my kid up and added more charges to him. They make up there charges as they feel like it. Have the squad is on steroids there the ones who need to be drug tested. Please somebody read this. They need help no food sleeping on floors! Come on now! They need to be investigated ASAP thanks 4 reading hope somebody can help.

    I have no simpathy for inmates. If you conducted yourselves correctly when you are out of jail, you wouldn't have to worry about what goes on inside of them.

  5. Mother of inmate Fri, Jan 27 2012 9:12 AM

    To No Sympathy, I hope you never have a kid that ends up in jail.

  6. Mother of Inmate Fri, Feb 24 2012 4:04 PM

    To the St. Bernard Resident. I too hope that you never have a kid, because it's possible that they will end up in jail and then what will you be saying!

    To anyone that has no sympathy for inmates, just wait, you will. Everyone in this country is now a hairs breath from being arrested at any time for any reason. The privatization of the jail and prison system has turned it into the biggest franchise industry in this country. In other words, they get paid for you to stay.If you dont believe me, take the time to look it up.It may be 2012, but it seems alot like "1984" to me, if you know what I mean. Dont kid yourselves, the day is coming when you will have to confront this corrupt predator head on. All of you.

  15. Kim Thu, Jan 31 2013 12:35 PM

    St. Bernard is the worst jail I have ever seen, I'm going to make it my mission before I leave this earth that it gets closed down. I have never heard of a jail where you can't visit your kids and you can't receive medical attention and when you do ask to many times you get put on lock down, I'm going to call someone who is over their asses and we will go from there. AND 4 THE LADIES ABOVE DON'T EVER THINK U R UR FAMILY CAN'T GO TO JAIL, MISTAKEN IDENTITY IS A M.F. SO BE CAREFUL AND PLEASE NEVER END UP IN ST. BERNARD PARISH JAIL!!!

  16. Kim Thu, Jan 31 2013 12:53 PM

    Please if your love one is sick and they r at St. Bernard call everyday and make sure they give them their medicine b/c they usually don't, and for the record aspirin and tylenol dosen't heal everything. I hope they will get more than 1 nurse to help 400 inmates and hopefully when she isn't their they will call someone for emergencies instead of making the inmate wait until she comes back to work, please check on your people if they r in St. Bernard b/c they will DIE, and everyone in St. Bernard has high blood pressure and staf infections, I wonder Y, take my word for it that prison isn't right......DEATH IS THE END RESULT

    5 Judges, 8 asst. DA's and an over paid police force (with a population of only 27k residents) , this is why people are arrested on trumped up charges

  19. Eyes wide open Tue, Aug 13 2013 11:47 AM

    St. Bernard Prison is a joke. They do not take inmates outside, they feed them crap, you cannot get Medical Attention because that one Nurse is either not there or do not care and they do not even give you a Bible It really cost money to be spiritual. The entire staff is Wack and they lock grown folks up at 7:15 really my children curfew is 9pm. Oh did I mention over half the population have kids but they cannot see theirs. Let not forget its Nasty and Dirty and the cleaning material they receive is not enough to clean a lil corner in the jail. Bugs you name it so why is this Jail still open. Why is our tax dollars still paying for this Jail to be open oh I forgot the ppl need jobs but the inmates do not need clear water I guest Brown water is the new thing. So why nobody checked this Jail out yet oh because they are inmates they are not human
