Can a juvenile in jail or detention get visits if the parent is a felon?

Most jails, prisons and detention centers make allowances for visits with immediate family members, specifically if the child is the one incarcerated. A juvenile can receive visits from parent who is a convicted felon, however it all depends on the crime(s) he or she has been convicted of.  Most parents maintain a right to be involved with their child's life, unless there are safety concerns and a history of abuse.
