TDS 2016 Photo TDCJ Letter

Clarification of TDCJ’s New Social Media Policy for Inmates

On the TDS Facebook page, we have recently linked you to recent news coverage about changes made last month by TDCJ in its Offender Orientation Handbookprohibiting inmates from having social media accounts. Because TDS represents death row inmates and we occasionally post news of cases on Facebook and Twitter, we sought clarification from TDCJ about the new policy.

You can read our letter to the TDCJ General Counsel and the response from TDCJ General Counsel Sharon Felfe Howell.

We hope that this information will be helpful to other lawyers, as well as the family and friends of inmates.
