There is an average of 1,428 inmates currently serving time at this facility. Prisoners are housed in separate areas depending on the crimes they committed, their current risk assessment, and their behavior. This facility is currently under the supervision of Warden Patrick Murphy and houses male offenders.

If you have a family or loved one that is currently incarcerated at DeSoto Annex, the first thing you should do is contact the prison for information on the inmate. Based on the information you are provided, you would then contact either a criminal defense lawyer or a bail bond service. They will provide you with vital information which can be used to defend an individual and in a lot of cases get them released from detention while awaiting trial.
