Question: can an inmate get in trouble for writing sexually

Question: can an inmate get in trouble for writing sexually explicit letters to a minor?Background on the question:I am a licensed psychologist in Oklahoma. Last Friday, the mother of my 17 year old client told me she discovered letters of a very intimate nature from a prisoner to my client. She said she could tell from the letters that the client has also written to him, so it is a two way street. The prisoner was convicted on 11-14-2003 of Rape - 1st Degree By Force And Fear. Received 20 year sentence. Started 1-16-2004, release date of 10-21-2023. Currently in Jess Dunn Correctional Center, Taft, Oklahoma.The mother said the letters were not in an envelope, so she has no idea how my client is getting the letters.She also said that this is the second time she has caught my client writing to this same inmate. I was not made aware of this fact until last Friday.Could he get in trouble for writing letters to her? I have not seen these letters, so I don't know how sexual they are, but judging by the gingerly worded message I received from the mother, I anticipate they are very sexual. I also would be surprised if she had not sent explicit photos of herself to him. My sincere and honest hope is that he could get in trouble, as this might actually get her to stop - at least long enough for me to intervene psychologically. But I need to know before I say anything. This young is extremely bright, and she likely has thought about this angle already.Thank you in advance for your assistance.
