Default Visitation taken away

My family member can't have visitation for 1 year because of DRs .I was just told he couldn't have video visitation either is this correct , he has mother that is very ill , and the only way she may be able to ever see him before his release , also has 4 children that he is the only parent they have ? Can this be appealed ?? Can they take his phone calls away also and his email ????

Very upset

Yes they can take his phone, email, visits, Commissary. They can take anything away, you can write him a lot and send him pictures, they always get mail.

I’m sure there is an appeal process for him to appeal the write-up or the punishment for it, but he would to appeal on the grounds of his own innocence or that the punishment given was incorrect based on the offense. Appealing a disciplinary loss of visits because his mother is sick and he has kids is not likely to be met with much sympathy. I imagine he’d be told he should have thought about mom and the kids before fooling around.

Good luck to you.

Unfortunate our system could care less about children’s feelings, or a dying moms either. I am sorry your family is seeing the ugly side of things.

Returned mail should have a reason on the envelope....a stamped list with one or more checked off (?) If not, I would think that a letter from DOC explaining why your letters were sent back should be sent to you ...then again, sometimes that's what I get for thinking

My son also had his visitation taken away for a year (which is funny in that he has less than a year left on his sentence). If his mother is terminally ill, you may be able to reach out to the Chaplain to see if he can arrange a hardship visitation. I doubt it because, like most of you, this system does not seem to care about inmate feelings.

they took everything from my ex BUT his visits and snail mail which is what I found odd.. they took phone, email, and gain time.. when I asked his classification why it was she said.. they have the right to take or give whatever they want based on whatever they did to get in trouble

Are your letters getting through yet? Maybe he can get a stamp from the Chaplin to write you? Or the commissary after awhile

If there is issues with mail, it sounds like a contraband I investigation. The rest are all normal punishments, but mail usually stays intact.
