Access to Courts & Counsel
Inmates are entitled to confidential correspondence and consultation with the courts and legal counsel. They can also request a hearing in court by using the inmate request form. Attorneys and other professionals of record can visit an inmate by presenting photo identification and a professional card. The visit is limited to a reasonable length of time, which is determined in part by facility operations and needs. Foreign citizens can have professional visits with consular staff from their country.
Professional visitors can call in advance to reserve interview times prior to their arrival. This reservation privilege may be lost after two instances of tardiness by the professional visitor. Please be aware that all briefcases and parcels entering the facility are subject to search by security staff.
In addition to confidential correspondence, inmates have access to unlimited collect telephone calls to their attorneys during their leisure time. The facility correctional counselor can also provide the inmate with various in-house and community legal resources.
