Lori Vallow-Daybell’s Request For Cell Phone Denied

Lori Vallow-Daybell has been incarcerated since March 2020 for felonies related to the deaths of her children: Joshua Vallow and Tylee Ryan. The children’s remains were found in Daybell’s new husband’s backyard.

Daybell’s attorney recently argued that his client should be allowed to have a cell phone, so that he can communicate with his incarcerated client without surveillance. He also requested that the video cameras in the attorney-client rooms be shut off during their private meetings.

Insisting that a cell phone would be too dangerous inside a jail, a district judge denied Daybell’s request.

In a recent interview, Denver defense attorney and Court TV correspondent Jeffrey Wolf noted that it’s been difficult for defense attorneys and clients to meet with each other during the pandemic, but inmates still have the right to privileged attorney-client meetings.

“He’s frustrated…he’s frustrated for the same reason that most defense attorneys with clients in custody right now are frustrated, he needs to see his client…and our access is very limited at a lot of these jails. Some of them will allow phone calls, but you’ll get them recorded, and if you believe the prosecutor didn’t listen to that phone call, I’ve got a beach in Idaho to sell you.”
