I work maintenance at both the male and female corrections facility's here in Texas. It is very hard on first time offenders when they have a 3-6 month stay. having family come and visit can help the "resident" emotionally get through the process. most staff are very helpful and nice (despite what you see in movies). I would say yes take her to see her mom. if your worried go first by yourself. some facility's have a training program that adult visitors have to go through first. usually it's just an hour long class. good luck

Saw this same story/person on a Mini-14 gun forum (3 months ago). Figured by now you'd have made up your damn mind on this unless you were just full of crap from the get-go. Dunno what your game is man, but you got some serious f'kn issues...


Edit... 5 months ago...


Dunno what kinda troll this is, but I played along for a while and got sick of it. Don't feed 'em.

I suspect it's bullshit. Nearly every jail now has "video visitation" where you can talk to inmates via skype-like programs. No need to even bother going down to the jail unless they allow contact visitation.

Even so, visitors to the jail here never get exposed to any of the inmate side of things. Separate entrance, isolated corridors that take you to the visitation area and the visitation rooms are behind a closed door so unless someone opens the door during the visitation you can't see into the jail pod. Even contact visitation is in a locked room isolated from the pod.

I know because I'm building one.

since there is an off topic section on this forum I have looked at before I thought I might ask about this


My wife, who is also mother of my fourteen year old will be going to jail for seven months for a financial crime. I am willing to stick by her and not leave her because I feel She made some stupid mistakes but it was out of character so I think she just got herself into a bad situation and make some poor decisions, She also never did anything bad at all before this And I am not defending her or saying she should not serve her punishment. I told my daughter we should be glad her mother is serving time for her actions. Doing the right thing for her mistakes. Also, her mother is showing regret and no defense at what she did . I am thinking of letting my daughter visit her and have her still be involved with her child because she was never an absent or abusive parent or anything. Some might say sticking by her is being enabling but I just cannot agree I was thinking of allowing my daughter to visit her. But I am not sure if I should because I don't think my daughter to be exposed to a prison environment. It is nothing to do with the mother is solely the environment. Also I hear it is a hassle to get in and you don't even get much time to speak. Seeing her mom there might be a bad image. Her mom will be dressed in a jail uniform and is of course rightfully being treated like any other inmate but that might send a "normalizing" message to my daughter . My daughter seems to be taking it fine , she also said it is kind of funny that her mother is locked up and is now the one being ordered around by others. This is weird because she never had a bad relationship with her mother. I asked what she meant and she said she was just joking. I think that is OK to try to crack a joke to make the situation feel less bad and that a better way of handing the situation instead of being hysterical about it If I do allow her what should I tell her in advance to prepare her? Is it a good idea for her to ask her mother questions about all this? also, I am willing to still let her be involved with her daughter and other things going on by telling her everything when she calls and asking about them. Is this alright?
I managed to talk to one of the main guards that works at that jail. She said that since my daughter is a teenagers it is perfectly fine to take her. She also said use it as a learning experience (what does that mean do you think), ask your wife to be honest about what happened, and to simply present it as a punishment for wrong doing. What do you think about this?
This is why I wouldn't do it. It's hard to combat that normalization message.

Meh. It's normalization to understand that if you break laws you can be sitting in a cell for a while. Not normalization that everyone goes to prison and it's "ok".

A 14 yo that cant understand that is already on a bad path.
