Inmates that are found to have committed sex crimes by other inmates will not last long. They are usually placed in Protective Custody (PC) which is a segregated area of cells also known as the Special Housing Unit (SHU), unless they are at a facility where all inmates are convicted of sex crimes. Even then, the child molester (Cho-Mo) is placed in some segregated area for their own protection.
