Sending a Mail
Offenders that are incarcerated in Mountain View Unit can receive letters from anyone. However, the mail cannot contain jewelry and/or contraband. In addition, if a sticker is placed on either the envelope or letter, the mail will be completely rejected. This is certainly an aspect to consider before the mail or package is sent.

However, there are still some more rules with respect to photos/books
