I'm sorry to hear this happened. You should contact the Henrico jail warden immediately.

The warden should have information as to exactly why your son has been transfered.

This is the main number to the jail, you can then request to be connected with the warden.

(###) ###-####/p>

Aside from that, your son's attorney can file a motion with the court requesting to know why your son was moved, and requesting that he be brought back to Henrico, if that is preferable for him.

Good reason to cite to help get that request granted wold be the proximity to family, and his success in the work program.

I hope that helps!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
