Some states make a year and a day the maximum amount you can spend in a county jail. Anything longer, and you go to a state prison
A one year sentence is served in a city or county jail; a sentence greater than a year is served in a state correctional facility, a prison. For some reason the judge felt it necessary for the sentence to be completed in prison rather than in jail

I knew someone who spent a few years locked down. He said they often transferred folks around because of gang affiliations. I don't know if that is a true statement but in his case, it obviously was.
Thanks for posting!
Slevin wrote more than a dozen letters, all with the same message. " He hand writes these letters, please help me. The medication is not working," Coyte said.
All of the letters are written to a Dr. Don, but as Coyte points out, Dr. Don is not a doctor at all, but a nurse practitioner for the jail. Coyte said Dr. Don was the one prescribing Slevin's medication even though he only has a bachelor's degree in psychology.
