Question How I can get approved to visit my fiancé? Help w/writing appeal letter?

I was just denied to become a visitor for my fiance at Lebanon Correction in Ohio because I use to be a contract worker there. They put on the reason for denial because I worked there and met him there...but we didn't break any rules while I worked there, and i quit and found another job so we could be together. Does anyone know anything i can do it get approved or can someone help me with what to say in e letter to send to his case manager and warden so i can try to appeal the decision. Also, does anyone know if i am denied forever or do you think they will just make me wait a certain amount of time before i can reapply? This means a lot to me. Thank you in advance!

So sorry you are going through this. As long as your LO is at the facility where you worked you likely will not be allowed to visit. It's a much greater possibility if he is transferred somewhere you don't have knowledge of though many people find it difficult to ever get approval.

Short answer - you won't be able to visit until he's at another facility, provided they have no evidence that you met at and engaged even in discourse that fell outside the bounds of normal discourse with inmates. And you are going to have a hard time proving that you left a job to be with somebody if you were conversing totally about work, rules, and, "go there".

You are deemed a security risk.

I have merged your two threads and moved your question to Ohio visiting.I hope you ge t some answers.

You are unlikely to succeed in legal action as there is no legislation about visiting, its a privilege at at the discretion of the warden.They can refuse you as a security risk if they wish. You cannot force them to let you visit.

You may be allowed to visit if he transfers facility and the new warden agrees. At his current facility you are a security risk to the prison and your former colleagues.

However how can you say you quit your job to be with him if you had no inappropriate contact? To decide you wanted to be together you must of had inappropriate conversations about feelings and relationships whilst at work and paid him far more attention than you paid other inmates.

Its best to be honest and see if you can gain visitation in the future. I hope he isnt serving a long sentence.

Look up the rules for his prison but I doubt you will ever be able to visit

Nothing you write in a letter is going to allow you to see him if he’s in the same facility you used to work at. You aren’t understanding. You were in a relationship with him while you worked there. You didn’t just look at each other and decide “oh, I like him, I’m going to quit and see if he feels the same way about me.” There had to be SOME sort of inappropriate behavior going on even if it wasn’t physical. Even innocent conversations will be considered inappropriate, especially after you are now writing and talking to him. You have inside information about the inside of the prison and what the daily procedures are and that’s a security risk.

You MAY have a chance if he gets transferred to a new facility and after a few years have passed. The sooner you accept that the better off you’ll be.

I agree no amount of letters is going to work just now. Your LO needs to request a transfer to a facility where you have not worked and after a period of time ( 1 year or 2 years) you can apply for visiting again and a new warden may approve you. That approach has worked for some members on here. Its going to be hard for you but its the way it is.

Look, you also need to understand that you may very well be under investigation for your inappropriate contact with an inmate. You could well face criminal charges for this conduct, for continuing to contact him, and for trying to get visits. If you push the matter, they may very well move him as far away as possible, go through all video records of you and him in tehnfacility, go through all phone recordings, and I guarantee you that they are collecting copies of all mail between you right now.

Your best bet, safest bet, is to let this go for as long as is necessary - preferably until he gets out. If you write an appeal, you will make admissions that will help the States case against you. Every contact you have with him increases their case against you, and possibly him.

Do not give me the old line, "the heart wants what the heart wants" because that is bunk. Every day, we refrain from engaging in inappropriate words and deeds with others because we are their teachers, their attorneys, thei judges, or they are married, priests, or others deemed taboo by society. If it is true love, you can wait and not threaten his release or your own liberty.

Drop it before the situation becomes much much worse.
