Lawyers allowed back in Norfolk jail

The Norfolk jail has changed its lawyer visitation policy … again.

Now, lawyers can visit their clients behind bars in the cell blocks, so long as they sign a waiver form acknowledging the jail’s safety policies, reports The Virginian-Pilot.

The sheriff changed the policy last year to require lawyer-client meetings in visitation rooms after female attorneys complained about lewd comments and gestures. Under this latest policy, lawyers are required to report any “offensive language or behavior” to the jail.
