Wife Barred From Associating With Husband As Condition Of Parole

The West Virginia Supreme Court has held that a condition of parole that prohibits the parolee from being in the presence of or associating with felons, including her own husband, was within the power of the court to order.

The parolee had contended that the provision infringed on her rights of marriage.

The court here noted that the parolee had engaged in her criminal activity (manufacture of methamphetamine) along with her husband and that her use of the drug had been fueled by insecurities resulting from her perception of her husband's views about her weight. (Mike Frisch)
