my son is in yaphank correctional facility on Long Island, New York He told me they fined him $25 for not making his bed and took it out of his commissary account. Is he telling me the truth, do they do that??
We have never heard that before. Some county jails charge a per-day fee for staying in their facility. They charge for medical treatment, too. BUT, they do not have the power to fine an inmate for not doing something. They can be sent to the SHU, also known as the "hole" which is solitary confinement.
