Victoria County Jail 7 8

VICTORIA, Texas—The Victoria County Jail visitation suspension for inmates has been extended.

The visitation suspension started January 18 and has now been extended until March 14. Victoria County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Will Franklin told us the extension is due to some COVID-19 problems with inmates that are still present, with several inmates in quarantine. Franklin added that since the visitation suspension, all inmates are allowed to get two free 20 minute video calls. The visitation suspension was approved by the Texas Jail Commission.
