Can Inmates Assign Power of Attorney?

Many times an inmate will appoint a POA to handle their financial affairs during periods of incarceration.  A Power of Attorney (POA) can be immediate or may only be valid during those times of incarceration.  Criminal defendants should discuss how their financial affairs may be administered if they are going to spend time in jail or prison.  Most criminal defense attorneys will prepare a POA for their clients when they are in jail or when incarceration is part of the plea bargain. The defendant should pay particular attention to whom they appoint.  If you are in jail for drug usage, appointing your drug using girlfriend may not be the best idea.  In general, only appoint someone who you trust with your money, assets and financial affairs.  If you do not completely trust that person, it may be better to not have any POA than an untrustworthy one.
