Whether it'll do any good or not is going to depend on why the visits were suspended, but you can write the Warden and request a reconsideration of the suspension. If they feel you are a security risk, the answer will "no."

How long are they suspended for? If for only a few months, it may be wise to ride it out.

I merged the three threads you started as this event unfolded into one thread and placed them in the PA DOC sub-forum. I will allow this thread to remain open so long as it doesn't parallel the other one. Here, you may discuss the suspension of visits only. If the posts drift closer to the content of the other now-merged thread, I will merge this one into it as well.

No I have not received a letter yet but I called and I was told I was being suspended so I guess I have to wait and see I tried calling to speak with the superintendent but it's hard to get a hold of her.

Not to be all in your business, but could I know what prison, Your visits was suspended from , The reason I asked is because I was suspended for 6 months & he was placed in the hole , he had a hearing while there he pleaded not guilty and after they reviewed the tape, he won which I heard is rare, and my visits were reinstated but I had to write a letter , to ask for my visits to be reinstated even though he won, which I thought was crazy. But withinh 3 weeks of my visits being terminated I received a letter and it took a additional 3 weeks after he won the hearing for my visits to be reinstated, in total 7 and half weeks and not once did I get ahold of the superintendent or a call back & I was wondering if it was the same prisons, but best wishes.

I would not presume that you are dealing with the same facility. The policy regarding visiting privileges is statewide, so the process is the same in every facility. The infraction incident was reported to the Central office, the investigation is tracked by the Central office, and the eventual outcome is dictated by the Central Office. This is done to maintain consistency between the facilities and also so the Central Office can monitor cases. The "institutional discretion" ended when this became a documented incident.

We had our visits taken for something the guards misunderstood. He is at Elkton and only there til May 17th. They told him that he lost visits indefinitely. However he is fighting to get them back. They did not review the video he said. The guards thought he punched my boob but he pinched my stomach trying to make me feel better as I was sick with a bad cold on visitation day. I felt like crap but had not seen him in over 3 months. So glad he will be done with all this as when he comes home he is completely free. No more papers.
