Jefferson County Jail to End Visitation

Jail visitation, for all non lawyers, per order of the Sheriff, is about to come to an end. The jail has posted flyers notifying family, friends and clergy of inmates in the jail that until further notice there will be no more visitations. Additionally the phone system for inmates in the jail has been down for over a week now and there are signs it will not be fixed any time soon. Finally, there is also word that mail to inmates is no longer being sorted or processed as in the past, so legal correspondence to clients will either be interrupted or move at a snail’s pace.
