In Pinal County, Sheriff Vasquez will not allow accused felons to visit anyone in the jail while their charges are pending. Letters are allowed, but will be checked. Part of the concern is that the couple would be co-defendants.
That is correct. Unless there is special permission granted, which is possible, but not probable.
It is common sense. Just think about it--two co-defendants, visiting, possibly "cooking up a story", etc. etc. I am not saying that would happen, but that is what they would think MIGHT happen. A person could turn it around and ask, "Why do they have to see each other?" Why aren't letters good enough?
By the way, it would be smart for neither of these people to discuss ANYTHING about the incident or incidents on the phone, in person, or in letters. Not a word! Only with the attorneys.
