Legal Question in Criminal Law in California

Power of attorney for inmates

I was in a land purchase deal with someone who was sent to prison before the deal was completed. The inmate will be out within two years, but the deal has a deadline shorter than that. The inmate and I both want to continue the deal. Can a California Department of Corrections inmate sign a power of attorney?
