It will depend on the state. In Georgia, a person who is on probation is allowed to visit an inmate in jail, however, in order for a probationer to visit an inmate in prison, the inmate would need to write and request to see the Warden to ask if a person on probation would be authorized to visit the prisoner. Years ago a person on probation did not have a problem visiting an inmate in prison, but they have changed this. If there is a question as to who is able to visit, it's always best to have the inmate/prisoner request to see the Warden and ask the Warden. Unless the inmate/prisoner causes a lot of problems, then the Warden SHOULD approve it.

Hope this helps ~ I'm not sure when you asked this question.

What is the maximum jail time for a probation violation?

Some inmates have served for life, after a probation violation. This is due to the fact that they have murdered another inmate while in jail, and then have received the maximum sentence. (From a technical standpoint, not all time is subsequently served in jail, on a life sentence. It is almost always the case, that the inmate is then transferred to prison.) And, to answer the original question, it depends on the type of probation violation (e.g. minor probation violation vs. rape or murder) and on what the original crime and sentence was.
