Q: It has been two weeks since I was able to talk to my wife in jail. She has no bond and is on suicide watch in Lee county

She just needs to hear my voice and speak with me. It will help her so much and she'll be better. They will not let me contact her anyway. What options do I have to speak with her? I am desperate

Your only option, aside from visiting her during a set visitation day, would be to contact the jail about putting money on her books so that she can use the phone.

Political prerecorded calls or autodialed calls to cell phones, other mobile services and restricted lines (like hotels and hospitals) are prohibited unless made with the “prior express consent” of the recipient.
