TDCJ rumours
« on: May 27, 2014, 11:37:30 am »
TDCJ is a hot bed of rumours. It is not only limited to inmates repeating things they have "heard", but it extends to TDCJ staff as well, and often the rumours overlap.

Around early summer each year there appears to be a fresh set of rumours, usually focused around some change that will happen the following September. Often it is about a time cut for certain inmates, or changes to those who will be eligible for parole at different times.

This year it seems that people think TDCJ will be allowing conjugal visits from September 2014.


However much we might want it to be true (which will naturally depend on your relationship with the inmate and whether you get off on the thought of sex being recorded and carried out inside a prison), you only have to look at how TDCJ is currently run to see that the liklihood of them ever being introduced is extremely slim. Remember, this is a state that resisted the introduction of an inmate phone system until 2011.

What has changed, slightly, is the ability for many inmates to have standard contact visits rather than non-contact visits through the perspex windows. Inmates that are classified as G1-G3, J1 and J2, P2, P3 and P4 are now eligible for one contact visit per weekend (normally 2 hours duration unless a special visit has been requested in advance) with G2, G3, P2 and P3 being eligible for three contact visits per month, and G4, J4 and P4 inmates being eligible for two contact visits per month.

Changes to the way TDCJ operates are usually introduced during the Texas Legislative Sessions, held every two years. The next Legislative session begins in January 2015, and details of the bills that are to be voted on can be found here: (when the session begins).
There and back again....

One of the funniest rumors EVER!!! As if TDCJ is all of a sudden so liberal leaning.

And even funnier because TDCJ doesn't allow inmates to marry  ;)

Of course many ARE married, I know, but the thought that conjugal visits would be introduced but not the opportunity to get married is hilarious :)
