In addition, the Houston Business Journal reports, Stanford filed a separate motion requesting that he be transferred from the Joe Corley Dentention Center in Conroe to a federal detention center in Houston.
Why the requested change? HIs attorney argues that besides the Corley facility being 43 miles from his office, it
does not allow proper attorney-client visitation considering “there is a Plexiglas window and small steel mesh hole through which an inmate and lawyer must speak and be heard,” and also limits attorney-inmate phone calls and does not allow Sunday visitation.
By contrast, according to the filing, the Houston jail provides a secure room “with the ability to have a meaningful review of documents and papers.”
