Inmates go through a period of despair upon being incarcerated. Their wave of emotions spans from sadness to anger, to blaming others before reality hits them in the face that they are locked up because of actions taken by themselves. Keep in touch for a while longer and see if things improve. Our take is that they will improve and ultimately the kindness you've shown will pay dividends in their behavior later in their sentence.
