Question: Can I go to Visit my Wife in jail? if both me and my wife were arressted for attempted burglary which they say makes us co-defendants,

Answer: There is no absolute right to visitation in an Arizona jail.  Certain restrictions can be imposed on who may visit a person incarcerated in a jail and what may be brought in during the visitation.  For example, the jails in Maricopa County do not permit visitation by any person who has “been convicted of a Felony Crime, been in incarcerated during the last twelve (12) months, or [is] an illegal alien.”  Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department Information for Families of the Incarcerated.  http://www.mcso.org/About/FAQ/Default.aspx  Rules and Regulations may vary from county to county and may be changed at any time.  For information about visitation, contact the jail which you intend to visit.
