What is the name of your state? California
**After being unable to locate a thread that addresses this particular dilemma, I have found myself here. My mother has recently received her denial letter for visiting an inmate. There were two reasons marked as to the reason for denial:
1) Information received from the Dept of Motor Vehicles reveals that you have failed to appear & failed to pay charges. Please notify this office with proof of this clearance and attach the clearance to this denial letter and return. You must possess a valid photo ID to visit.
2) Per California Code of Regulations (CCR), Section 3177.5, "Anyone having extensive or recent history of criminal activity which are of a particular sensitivity to institutional security will be denied visiting privileges."
Mom is unsure as to how to clear this up, or if there is a way. Her status is as follows: She does have the traffic tickets that have been defaulted on. Is there anyway to get this ball rolling so that she is able to visit the inmate?
The 2nd reason is unclear... mom was recently (3 yrs ago) detained while on a visit to a county jail for an outstanding warrant which was later dismissed and no action was taken.
Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
