Sue,
The central administration of the camps was the Dept of Corrections in Richmond, but I don't have any idea whether they kept those old records, or whether you could get them. If you know where he lived, there should be a record in the County Clerk's Office of the trial and sentencing; that's a public record and available to anyone. If you find that, be aware that VA had administrative sentences, where a man might go on the road for 6 months for non-support, for example, and, once in the system, receive another year or so from the guards for attitude, general principle, or whatever.

The record you are looking for is probably among those turned over to the Library of Virginia. I don't know the progress on archiving those records, but you can check with them. Your inquiry brought something else to mind and, when I looked for that, I saw mention of the record being transferred.
