Well, lol, I answer this question a lot ( since I have been on these visits) family and private. --- theres not that much " privacy". EVERYTHING is searched and you are limited to what you can bring. Count still takes place- and you sign a waiver that 2 guards ( always a female and a male) can enter the trailer at ANY time.( and they do) Many people do it a few times then stop- it feels "dirty." ( you need to bring your own clean sheets too.) They provide you with a list of items you can/need to bring. We always had a TV and radio in the trailers, and not a real "bedroom"- more like an area with partial wall off of the main area.
Trailers are all lined up in a row, and check in time is the same time for everyone, as well as check out. I have seen MANY of these visits end bad- arguing,ending early. Men are men and women are women, sometimes one person wants to be way more "active" then the other- sometime one person just wants to lay together.I was happy to have them, don't get me wrong. But it was also a little embarrassing the 1st time or 2.... knowing that all the guards KNEW what was happening, but you get over that part quick. But, Id take sentence reduction over this in a heartbeat.

Very much depends on the case I think, when in doubt I'd go for Extended Family Visits.

Yeah I could see how bringing kids to a trailer visit could be a real mood killer!!

Default Reduction

Wisconsin is starting to become a backwards state and the fact that they're taking money away from education and putting it into the prison system because our prison system is at 130% capacity. It's a known fact that the more uneducated a person is the more chance there is of that person getting in trouble and going into the prison system. So it's a never-ending cycle and the state cannot keep up with the cost of this. Now the system is so far behind that the sentences are becoming longer and longer so at some point maybe they can get the help they need to actually become a productive member of society. At this rate Wisconsin should be in the bankruptcy process by the year 2025. What aren't these legislators and politicians getting?
