Mark David Chapman, whose seventh shot at parole is scheduled for this week, was reapproved Monday for conjugal visits, the Daily News has learned.
Chapman had participated in the so-called “family reunion” program when he was an inmate at Attica Correctional Facility, the supermax pen in the upstate town by the same name. But he had to reapply after being transferred in May to Wende state prison in Genesee County. “He followed the standard procedures and protocols in our system, and his request for participation was approved,” said state prison system spokesman Peter Cutler.
Chapman and wife Gloria Hiroko Chapman will be allowed to spend up to 48 hours in a trailer on prison grounds; his stepfather will also be able to visit to say hello. The trailer is free of prison guards and cameras; it has a kitchenette, a living room and at least two bedrooms.
