    Of what age? And no, no one in a detention center of any kind, adult or juvenile, has the total control over visitors and contact with those not incarcerated.

    He is 18 and in a juvenile facility until he is 21we think that he was found mentally incompetent to stand trial as an adult if that is so and he is housing the juvenile facility will he be treated as a juvenile until he turns 21

    Please try to use proper sentences. It is difficult to read your posts. Who is "we"? You don't mention what the charges are, whether charged as a juvenile or adult (18 is adult), if he was indeed found incompetent to stand trial, on what grounds, and what the court declared should happen now.

    Generally persons incarcerated under governmental control must create a list for the facility of those they wish to correspond with, and/or telephonically contact.

    Yes, most institutions allow inmates to provide a list of persons whom they don't wish contacting them.

    In the case of mentally ill persons, there are many contradictions, as well as various protocols.

    I suggest you contact the warden of the institution and inquire.
