During the booking process, a defendant’s cell phone is often confiscated along with his or her clothing and other personal possessions. Once inside a jail or prison, the corrections facility has the right to monitor the frequency and duration of an inmate’s cell phone access. Generally, the prison will offer free or low-cost phone calls to inmates on a regular basis.
In almost no situations are defendants allowed to use their personal cell phones while spending time behind bars. This rule was enacted in part to prevent criminals from continuing to run their criminal empires from behind bars. Similarly, some facilities have the right and ability to record prisoners’ personal phone conversations in order to minimize the possibility of defendants engaging in further crime.
