JUST REVEALED: Are jailers secretly recording ‘Cult Mom’ Lori Vallow’s every move behind bars?

The attorney representing Lori Vallow has claimed that jailhouse conversations with his client were recorded without his knowledge.

As Fox 10 Phoenix reports, attorney Mark Means said at Vallow’s bond reduction hearing on Friday that he suspected multiple calls between himself and Vallow, who is in jail in Idaho on felony child desertion charges, were rethe corded and that both prosecutors and detectives listened to the recordings.

“I might not be the most seasoned attorney, but there is absolutely no way that I would ever get on a phone, thinking that it was going to be recorded and have incredibly sensitive conversations with my client regarding their defense,” Means said on Friday, as he argued for Vallow’s bond to be reduced from $1 millon to $150,000-$250,000.

Ultimtately, the judge was not swayed by Means’ lengthy arguments, noting that only two calls were recorded, and both calls, which took place on March 31, included an audio warning that the call was being monitored. Further, Means reportedly had the option of requesting that the calls not be recorded, but did not do so.

Vallow’s two children, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow have not been seen since September, and Vallow did not comply with a court order to present the children to authorities in Idaho.

She remains in a Madison County Jail on $1 million bond.
