A Checklist for Going to the Sumner County, TN Jail

Need a checklist for doing a weekend in Sumner County, TN jail? I didn't think a checklist was needed until last week. I posted last week on a checklist for going for a court appearance. A friend sent me a message that I needed to include a checklist for spending a weekend in the Sumner County jail. Unfortunately, this is based upon her personal experience for women. Her is the list for women and you can guess the modifications for a male inmate.

  • Two pairs of white underwear.
  • Two white bras without underwire. Men can omit this item from their checklist.
  • Two pairs of socks.
  • One pair of white thermals.
  • Tennis shoes. No laces allowed.
  • One paperback. No hardcovers allowed.
  • Eye glasses or contacts. Trial size deodorant.
  • Toothpaste, toothbrush, and soap are provided.
  • Weekenders have no access to the vending machines.
  • No money is allowed. Medications are given at random hours.

The general concept is the jail would not pass an inspection by the department of health. Going to jail is not a walk in the park, but why have mandatory jail sentences on certain crimes.
