My daughter is sitting in the Saint Lucie County Facility for her first time for over a month now.With no communication to the outside world. I have called the facility and get the run around who gave me Global tel link number to put money on the account so my daughter can call.Well I have twice to no avail. SO I switched my phone providers because I was told maybe there was a block on the account.Well the calls are still not getting threw.Do we let a young girl sit in Jail with no communication  even to her mom to let her know what is going on or that she was even sitting in this jail where many people sit there for months before they are even able to go before a judge then only to be released.She has missing school and she is in a place she does not know as she is from N.Y. I am disabled and been going threw all these changes and still have not been able to see her because she has not been able to make contact with me threw this service.What a rip off. Where does this month go? Is it all a scam for the Saint Lucie County Sheriffs Dept or what?

(When my daughter was stabbed last yr outside my bedroom window where was this sheriffs Dept then?)

No need to call the number below you will get the run around like I did!!

Are you really being ripped off?


Your post is a little confusing and does not explain enough to know if your really being "ripped off". You also made some statements that are disturbing. You stated that it is her first time in jail. Will there be a second? To me, once would be too much. Disturbing...

Most correctional facilities do not allow incoming calls. You can imagine the disruption of the jail if the inmates control the telephones. You should check to see for sure if they even allow incoming calls. Most calls have a scheduled time to be made and are made from the inmate , collect , to the accepting parties. A cell phone is not acceptable in most cases because the calls are made collect. Did you deposit money into a telelink account?

If your daughter is over 18y/o then you dont have any legal rights to anything that happens to her in the jail/prison system. If she is a juvy and not emancipated then as a legal parent you would be able to communicate with her. You dont say why she is in jail, but you make it sound like the county kidnapped her and threw away the key. There is a possibility that your daughter committed a crime and thats why she's in jail.

I dont think you are being scammed by the Sheriff Dept. I just think your complaining.

And your final disturbing statement "When my daughter was stabbed last yr outside my bedroom window where was this sheriffs Dept then?". Most people know that police depts. are understaffed and more are needed. Law enforcement patrol 24/7 and it would be impossible and foolish to think that they could be everywhere at the exact moment in time that people need them.

In conclusion I think your post is stupid. If you really cared about your daughter then she would have been inside the safety of your home, instead of outside your window being stabbed.
