My son was transferred to DRDC to be paroled after sentencing on Monday, March 21. How long does that process usually take? Will he be released from DRDC? I’d just like to know more about how that process works.
My Fiancee was transferred to your facility on the 27th of March from Washington County. I had to call every facility in the state of Colorado to find him. Is there a waiting period before he can call me to let me know if he is ok or needs anything.
And why is he still listed under Washington County. Even his P.O. is not responding to any of my questions
Why has my question not been answered?
My husband was transferred to DRDC on Friday when will he be able to call me to let me know he is okay. And how will he be able to know that I already have a calling account ready for him to call me?
