    I was a former inmate at odom and i was trying to get my school records. Ged so that i could go to school

  2. Janie D. says:

    I had two sons that was housed at this horrible place…..one worked in the cafeteria that was infested with rats. No air during the sweltering summer months on one side of the prison. Still trying to figure out how the State of North Carolina continues to let this place stay opened……My son repeatedly calls complaining of the conditions. Case managers have No knowledge of what’s going on. I guess no schooling is required for jobs at the place. I myself has called with questions and was transferred to three people before my question could be answered. With less than two weeks remaining on his sentence, my son was sent to lock up for the remainder of his stay for a write up a Month earlier. I’m writing this to have proof of my concerns if anything unusual should happen to my son before his release on **/**/17. Something needs to be done about this poorly ran place. Although my son will be released soon ther are other inmates ther that are suffering daily due to the poor conditions of this prison as well as the unqualified staff that works there. I pray something will be done before it’s too late.
