Default Federal Prison Camp: Age considered an “adult” for visitation purposes?

What age is considered an “adult” for visitation purposes? I’m receiving conflicting info when I call the prison: 16 and 18. My sister is an inmate & her daughter is 16. They’re saying she has to have a “government issued” ID (which she does not have) or she can’t come tomorrow. She doesn’t even have a drivers license yet.

Any help would be appreciated.

Being skeptical of information from a phone call is reasonable. But the BOP has it's own way of doing things, and it is not uniform from place to place. All things being equal, your niece needs an ID. A learner's permit is probably the fastest way to get it. If your niece was referenced in the Pre-Sentence Report, then she could be granted visiting privileges now. Is there even a school ID? Why did you call in the first place? If your niece is the impatient type, having someone available to take her home if the visit is denied would be the way I'd go.

I called to confirm the age. My sister said she “may” be considered an adult, so I wanted to confirm. The prison is several hours away, so just leaving is not an option. A school ID won’t work. It has to be gov’t issued.

Here's what the bop visiting rules say about identification of visitors,
Page 13, Colorado prison complex; https://www.bop.gov/locations/instit...isit_hours.pdf

2. Satisfactory identification of adult visitors, 16 years and older, must precede visits. This will ordinarily be accomplished by picture identification, such as a current driver's license, passport, or state identification card. An expired I.D. is not considered valid.

3. All visitors over 16 years of age are required to complete the Notification to Visitor form in its entirety, prior to each authorized visit.

Yes, just go get a state ID from the DMV. It is not that hard and you can usually get one the same day. That said, a 16 year old should have one anyway, especially if they don't have a driver's license or passport.

At 16 most kids have a driving permit or license depending on the state. If not, a passport or state issued ID work. Here the kid ID is under $13 dollars
