If you’re referring to the existing phone system in most jails, all those calls are recorded. If they recorded you on that system, you’re probably out of luck bc tecording notices are posted everywhere. If you are referring to some other telephone system or recording, further information is necessary to determine whether or not you have a case.

Bottom line, visiting an inmate is a privilege, not a right, and corrections has pretty wide latitude in enforcing their rules and regs. There’s no real good end in a case like this, bc there’s no money and no damages. Although you won’t like this answer, safest route is dressing like it church on Sunday so they don’t cut off your visitation on a whim.
