Does anybody know, if you are granted a special 4 hour visit on saturday and sunday at the Sanchez Unit, are they contact or non-contact. I was told when I called the Wardens office that they honor requests if you call on that Monday to make arrangements. I was approved when I called, but I was checking to see what the process was. I would hate to drive 9 hours and not have a contact visit. But I guess I will take what I can get.
They will be contact if you are immediate family and non-contact if you are not. You can always ASK for a special contact visit when you ask for the special visits - if he doesn't get many visits, it's possible that it can be approved, but it's totally the Warden's decision.
If anyone asks, not that they would...I'll be down in Mississippi and up to no good! - Sugarland
I made that trip in June. 12 hours exactly... We did get a contact visit, for me, my mom and our two girls. I called in that Monday, for approval, and then back on Thursday to make sure everything was a go. It was 4 hrs on Saturday and then 4 more on Sunday.
