The life of an inmate is not easy. There are going to be times where bullying and intimidation are overwhelming. Your son has a lot of time ahead of him and is going to have to use some of his guile and wits to handle these social pressures that are prevalent in prison. Paying extortion will NEVER end. It will go from money and property to sexual abuse or worse. If he is frail and unable to protect himself, the safest place might be in protective custody. Living alone (in solitary) might be better than being abused and prostituted by the predators who will take advantage of him.
