    How do you get an inmate transfered from one facility to another?

  3. Dollie Henderson Thu, Sep 13 2012 4:16 PM

    I had a son in East Feliciana Parish Prison who had to be treated medically at Earl K. Long Medical Center. The medical center did not charge him anything because he was a prisoner. I know because I called the medical center and asked. If the medical center did not charge him anything, why is the prison charging him $500.00 for medical. They took all his money and did not even leave him enough money for a bus ticket. My calls to the warden of the facility have gone unanswered. When I ask whom do I need to speak with about a complaint, i am always directed to the warden. After speaking to the DOC legal dept. I was informed that if it is a paarish facility, it is the Sheriff that is over the facility. I attempted to contact Sheriff Tolmadge Bunch but was informed that he was in a meeting. I have various complaints about this facility and will be following up on this issue.

    East feliciana is totally corrupt. The dept. Of corrections knows it and doesn't care. Most Louisiana jails are privatized and the sheriff of each parish is the ultimate authority over any jails and prisons in his parish. The more prisoners they have, the more state and federal funds they get. They also make a profit off work release programs, commissary (store) and charging for doctor visits. It doesn't matter that they were not billed (they receive state funds for inmate health issues anyway) they charged him for the ride to the hospital and the man hours for someone having to wait with him and take him back to jail. The warden is only there in the morning, for a few minutes, long enough to clock in. The sheriff Will refer you back to the warden if you actually reach him. ACLU has been trying to do something about the Louisiana prison for profit inmate abuse for years, but since the governor is making a lot of money from it, its not likely to change. If you actually want to do something about it, either hire an atty yourself or contact the baton rouge ACLU. They tend to pay more attention if there is a possibility they may end up behind the same bars as the people they are getting rich off of.
