Default Visitors may wear bras at Maine State Prison


“I own it,” [deputy commissioner]Fitzpatrick said Monday. “It’s not going to happen anymore. There’s got to be a middle ground where we can be respectful and still maintain safety and security.”
Venable’s niece, Letitia, who lives in Searsmont and has requested that her last name not be used, for fear of retaliation, visits the prison weekly to see her husband. She said she removes her bra begrudgingly because, otherwise, she wouldn’t be able to see him. Her 16-year-old daughter, Lori, who is her husband’s step-daughter, does the same.
“It’s noticeable,” Lori said. “You’re exposed, and you’re in a room with sex offenders and pedophiles. It’s embarrassing and it’s scary.”

My bra has been an issue at a CDCR facility. No underwire, but the hooks set it off. But in Cali, you HAVE to wear a bra (and can be asked to show your strap to ensure you are). Had to drive into town and buy something without any hardware. But I guess reading this, that was the preferable alternative.
