Default Wedding ring question for Rhode Island Prison - need response asap please

My son in-law is being sentenced this thursday for a driving on a suspended lic. He was on probation so he's signing for a year however he has credit for 4 months he did earlier. So he'll be back soon! He's a good kid, has a good job, never done drugs or anything like that, He just likes to drive when he shouldn't!

ANYWAYS, long story short, I called and wrote emails to the RI DOC over a week ago with no response so I found this site and I hope someone, maybe a staff member or family member of a married inmate can help me out with my question.

My daughter and him have been together for a long time and just recently got married, I know inmates can wear wedding bands as long as they're plain and not elaborate My concern is, Does he need a copy of marriage license to show at the committing area keep the ring? My daughter is in the military and is currently not reachable for a copy of it by Thursday and I rather not try to obtain one for him if it's not needed.. He is concerned that since he is young (24) that the officers will think it's not an official wedding ring and ask for documents or send it home upon arrival.



.He is signing on Thurs morning if anyone can help me find out an answer before then I'd be greatful.

Thanks!

He should be allowed to keep it without any documentation. Intake allows only wedding ring.. no other jewelry.. visitors & inmates both.

I have read that most places allow you to have the wedding ring as long as it is plain with no stones and not expensive. I am not positive about documentation, but I have not read anywhere that is is necessary. So my guess is that he will be okay to wear it without documentation.
