    When the justice minister unannounced

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    When the justice minister unannounced visited the prison, she found its state worse than she expected. It was dirty, food was tasteless, and some prisoners were under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Or "visited the prison unannounced."

    You could also say:

    She found it to be in a worse condition than she expected.
