My name is Shelley Bridges TDC # was 01592671 and yes, I was housed on Hobby unit and did some time while was there. I started getting really sick not only from Water but caught Staff . I was very lucky get come home in July of 2011 one day before my daughter 9 th Birthday and she was 2 yr old when left my son was 3. I was out one full week cooking dinner to start feeling very light headed next thing I knew I was open my eye at WNJ Sherman Tx and where they side very sick was coma for two days cause water ate whole my stomch and My esophagus Where now I have problems swallowing food And I have no gallbladder Cuz it called ulcers and a whole bunch of other stuff And chronic staph infections I'm sick daily And is not a way to live when I went in and I was perfectly healthy Try living with him is every day for the rest of your life because you called it in person Blood transfusions at work What they do for a certain amount of time And then we had to have it redone But for the future reference I won't be going back Because I love my freedom hobby unit is the worst as unit In the state of Texas They abused you The twin meet you I freeze you so much time They burn me up And officers don't give a f*** So I have eyes don't do nothing wrong because you don't want to end up here Who don't give a f*** either Doing life without parole So I wish I look in I just know that my life is not going to be easy.

i was just released from the hobby unit this year and not all but a great majority of the guards are very corrupt even one of the “safe prisons” officers bragged that she deliberately wrote cases against inmates that would keep them from going home. A guard named ms.truesdale now mrs willis told a group of inmates while she was pregnant i will risk my unborn child just to make sure none of yall hoes go home.The biggest animals i met were by far the guards they beat up a lady that was trying to tell them she wasnt doing good mentally guards on numerous occasions observed inmates fighting and sat at the tables in the dayroom pumping the inmates up and laughing they put two people back in a cell together after they had problems knowing one was going to get beat up and laughed about it. Now about the living conditions every summer that i was there we had a boil water notice but those of us who were housed in cells once locked in had no choice but to drink the contaminated water. We had periods of time that we were stuck in the cells and had no water to flush the toilets There are worms in the shower area oh and i spent two years there with no heat on the side of the dorm i lived in without even so much as an extra blanket. I have a condition called angioedema it causes my lips tongue and face to swell due to allergies i went to an officer an asked to be sent to medical it just so happened to be a caring officer she called medical and told them that i needed to see them because my lips and tongue were swelling more by the minute. The officer came back and said im sorry medical said you have to drop a sick call the officer of all people said they know they are wrong for that s#!t. The news comes to hobby and somehow they always manage to lie and convince the public that whatever problem the news was called about isnt as bad as it really is. I promise as God is my witness at least 90 percent of the guards at Hobby are either mentally physically verbally and or emotionally abusive toward the inmates with 0 provocation just because they can get away with it and they know they can.

I did about two years at the hoy unit and I feel the pulic needs to know that notonly are the cops abusive on the outside but they are on the inside as well. families need to help their loved ones on the inside and take steps farther than the warden. there are a lot of inmates that abuse others in there and the officers laugh about it and or allow it. it is ghetto hell there and lots of discrimination there. black officers rule the whites and are verally abusive to the inmates. yes a few whites too. you will not be left out. bogus cases that affect those that are really trying to go home. news staions need to set up your post.

When I first started my prison sentence, I was sent to Dayton, was there for eight months, from there I went Reception unit for almost a month, then was assigned to Hobby, had to work the hoe squad for months, before I got medically unassigned for three months, then was assigned to the kitchen, after awhile I laid it down, refused to work, I got so many disciplinary cases both minor and major, but somehow I was never sent to medium custody, I did a lot, saw a lot, met & bunked with people I would've never chosen to. I'm not an angel, but some of those women weren't worth knowing. The guards let the little power they had go to their head, some women could get away with anything, especially if it was a stud, or a pretty girl. I saw and felt enough hatred in that place that would make your blood run cold. Cold blooded killers, that never showed an ounce of remorse, they laughed when they talked about what they did. I saw women get cut up on the rec yard, under the stairway, in the gym. I had roommates that tried to control me, but that's all they did was try. If you don't stand up for yourself in there, then you'll always be just another little mouse. I did 12 flat years, from 1997 till 2009. Most of my time was on Hobby, but I did time on Riverside, Terrace, and Sycamore. Whoever reads this, if you've never been to prison, please stay away, it's not a good place. I 've been out for five years now, and I'm doing good. I never want to go back to those pieces of hell on earth.

    Wow! Thanks Cheryl. Hobby Unit sounds like a really bad place.

    Cheryl,so When you left had they done anything to fix the nasty water they had to use? I see and read a lot of bad stuff about Hobby I can't understand how the state allows this prison be allowed to run like this and be so nasty I'm very worried I have a daughter that just got transfered there and I don't think she will be able to handle what goes on there unless there have been some changes made since you were there. After she told me she had to move to that unit I Googled it I was shocked and got sick right away knowing she had to be there and I don't know what to do for her...with all the reports these girls tell about Hobby I can't understand WHY it remains open...Praying for my daughter very hard. .and thank God you are out.....

i was on Hobby from 2010 to 2014...I must say its all what you make of it..the guards are ghetto and rednecks and prejudice and the rank is just sorry..but there are good people on this unit and I made a couple of good friends that I will always care about. I have been out 3 months and have a job and a new car ...I have no plans of EVER returning to prison and especially not Hobby...I had a good job but had to work the hoe squad for about 3 months when I lost my trustee but even with HIGH Blood Pressure and over 45 they still had me out there in that heat but its what you make of it like I said...its best to try to be in 5 bldg even tho its hot and cold back there..its somewhat safe!!
