Wives Stand Against the End to Conjugal Visits

JACKSON, Miss. — The wives of inmates and others were in the capital city Friday to stand against the Department of Correction’s end to conjugal visits. Those visits will end at the end of January. The group gathered in Smith Park sharing stories about what their significant other mean to them.

Several professed that not being able to have conjugal visits makes it even harder for them to hold together their already difficult relationship.

Kelly Muscoelino, Director of Mississippi Advocates for Prisoners, says the group has a bill in the works to keep conjugal visits. “We wrote a bill for conjugal visits, family visits, and regular visits. We want it to be made into a law and not something they can take away at a whim.” The deadline for that bill is next Wednesday. They are hoping to get Senator Kenny Wayne Jones to sponsor the bill.
