Prison/jail is no joke. Sometimes the young jits need to settle down and not get mixed up with others. The first couple isn't too bad, hopefully, he'll learn a lesson. But if not, he'll be looking at solitary before you know it.

this sounds like "diesel therapy". it is a form of punishment where inmates are shackled and then bused for days from one destination to another. It has been alleged that some inmates are deliberately sent to incorrect destinations as an exercise of diesel therapy.

there is no maximum... i knew guys that were in there for their entire bid. it really depends on the infraction and reason for being sent there... for instance, getting caught with a cell phone got one guy 9 months in the SHU another got 18 months in the SHU

You get two people to pick as your defense witnesses. When i did it, i only took the Corrections Officer who was my direct supervisor at my job (landscaping). He came in and basically gave a character reference on my behalf and the DHS liked his testimony enough to release me from the SHU into gen pop right away. I would not have an inmate come to represent me, the staff believes their own kind more than another inmate who

It might be on your end or on the inmate's end. If you were on a call and said something that caught the ear of a CO and reported you. If you attempted to add another person to the call while it was going (third-party calls are a no-no), that might do it. Or, the inmate is on some disciplinary period for violations inside.
