As far as I know they are pretty strict when it comes to DV even if you are not the victim.

Here is what the Title 15 states. Check to see if his charge falls into the catagories stated. It also states something about the victim being a family member...

(a) When a bonafide and verified foster relationship exists
between an inmate and another person, by virtue of being raised in
the same foster family, the person may be approved for family
visiting with the prior approval of the institution head or designee.
(b) Family visiting is a privilege. Eligibility for family visiting
shall be limited by the assignment of the inmate to a qualifying
work/training incentive group as outlined in section 3044.
(1) Family visits shall not be permitted for inmates convicted of
a violent offense involving a minor or family member or any sex
offense, which includes but is not limited to the following Penal
Code Sections: 187 (when the victim is a family member or
minor); 192 (when the victim is a family member or minor); 243.4
261; 261.5, 262; 264.1; 266c; 266j; 273a; 273d; 273.5; 273.6; 285;
286; 288; 288a; 288.2; 288.5; 289; 289.5; 311.1; 311.2; 311.3;
311.4; 313.1; 314; or 647.6.
(A) Inmates may be prohibited from family visiting where
substantial documented evidence or information of the misconduct
described in section 3177(b)(1) exists, without a criminal conviction.
The evidence or information appropriate for the purpose of
this regulation shall include rule violation reports as well as the
standard described in section 3173.1.
(B) Family visiting shall be restricted as necessary to maintain
order, the safety of persons, the security of the institution/facility,
and required prison activities and operations, pursuant to section
3170.
(2) Family visits shall not be permitted for inmates who are in
any of the following categories: sentenced to life without the
possibility of parole; sentenced to life, without a parole date
established by the Board of Prison Terms; designated Close A or
Close B custody; designated a condemned inmate; assigned to a
reception center; assigned to an administrative segregation unit;
assigned to a security housing unit; designated
‘‘C’’ status; guilty
of one or more Division A or Division B offense(s) within the last
12 months; or guilty of narcotics distribution while incarcerated in
a state prison.
(3) Family visits shall be permitted only in CDC institutions
and conservation camps.
(c) Unescorted minors of the inmate
s immediate family shall
not participate in family visits. Exceptions include an inmate
s
legal spouse, the inmate
s children or legal stepchildren and the
inmate
s own brothers or sisters when the institution head or
designee approves such unchaperoned visits.
(d) Inmates shall not be eligible for a family visit while any
action that restricts, suspends, or denies their contact with a visitor
or visitors during regular visiting is in effect. Family visits may be
revoked or suspended without such action affecting an inmate
s
eligibility for contact or non-contact visits.
(e) Each inmate shall be subject to disciplinary action, which
may include suspension or exclusion from participation in the
family visiting program, for any willful damage of the unit and/or
furnishings or for failure to maintain the cleanliness of the family
visiting program unit.
(f) Visitors failing to report to the visitor processing area by
11:00 a.m. without the notification and approval of the family
visiting coordinator are subject to cancellation of the visit and
suspension of family visiting program privileges for six months.
(g) Inmates with a disability requiring an accommodation for
family visits shall give 72 hours notice of any request for
accommodation.
