I have started a petition on change.org for conjugal visits for all inmates with consenting spouses because I believe it's important and will promote less tension and hostility within the prisons. I started this petition because I feel that if the spouse of an inmate consents to conjugal visits that they still want to bond with their spouse and they still believe in that person. I further feel that if the inmate committed a sex-related crime and is truly guilty, their spouse will cut off all ties with that inmate therefore will have no desire to have a conjugal visit so if a spouse desires conjugal visits; they want to keep their marriage alive and strong. Some inmates have been false accused. Some misunderstood. Some misrepresented. If the spouse of an inmate charged with a sex-related crime wishes to have conjugal visits and gives their consent; they should be allowed to have them; instead of being punished along with their spouse. If you feel the same way I do, please sign the petition on change.org

      My brother is incarcerated at the Polunsky unit in Livingston, tx. He has been married for 21 years. His release date is 2047... He will be 85 years old if he serves his entire sentence. I think these visits is very important to his marriage.
