Restrictive housing is 'solitary confinement', and can be classified as "Administrative Segregation" or "Disciplinary Segregation" which to every inmate is known as, "The Hole" or the SHU (Special Housing Unit). Inmates in the SHU are allowed ONE 15-minute phone call PER WEEK.Read more
It is typical that the DOC will place all facilities on lockdown until the escapee is captured. However, phone privileges can be taken away for several different rule infractions, too.Read more
Neither are good things to happen to an inmate. The first thing that happens is the corrections officers take you into custody, in handcuffs, the whole thing, and you are taken to the Special Housing Unit, or the SHU, also known as "the Hole", or solitary confinement. You will stay in the SHU until you have a Disciplinary Hearing to determine your fate. The penalty is usually a lengthy stay in the SHU, like 6 months to a year or more, plusRead more
Punishment for not following orders. Inmates are not free to object to much to the way they are handled by the 'system'.Read more
This is a slippery slope for sure... He needs to separate himself from this group if he is hanging with inmates who are still looking to break laws even while incarcerated. But if he's running with this crowd, he's gonna be guilty by association even if he declines. If he's truly serious, he really needs to do whatever he can, including seeking a transfer, to not be in a position where additional charges get tacked onto his sentence.Read more
Could be weeks, could be months... if the violation is severe enough, I've seen it last for over a yearRead more
they can be held as long as the prison administration says. If another inmate is accusing you of something, both go to solitary confinement (the SHU) until the "investigation" is over. If they find nothing, they are stepped down back into gen pop, if not, they could spend a lot more time in maxRead more
Once the other inmates know there is a child molester in their midst, it's bad news for the CHO-MO. That is why most CHO-MOs are sent to prisons where there are other CHO-MOs. CHO-MOs belong with each other.Read more
‘Intoxication’ means the same on the inside as it does on the outside. they either tested positive for a urine test for alcohol or drugs. when I was in federal, they would randomly UT inmates the day after a holiday. Alcohol got snuck in and people got wasted. It's easy enough to get weed, xanax, oxy or meth inside. BUT, if you test positive inside, you are getting some serious SHU time or worse.Read more
There is always a reason. It might be a shitty one, but they are in charge, and there aren't any appellate processes for the inmate. The CO can basically levy an accusation of specific charges on any inmate by placing "under investigation". Once that status is tagged, they take the inmate(s) to the SHU until the investigation is concluded. This could literally take weeks or months. There are different commissary rules for the SHU, the item list is very limited.Read more
