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.Read more
The federal intake usually starts with a short bid in the SHU. The reasons they use vary from "missing paperwork", "bed shortage", "custody level adjustment" to name a few. I was designated to a camp and had to sit in the SHU for two weeks until they decided it was time for me to report to the camp. It was not fun and I was very happy when they released me into the gen pop.Read more
Yes, the CDU or Complex Detention Unit is essentially segregation housing. There are two types of this unit, one is for disciplinary and the other is administrative. Disciplinary segregation, referred to by prisoners as “the hole,” is applied as a short-term punishment for breaking prison rules. Most prison units have a CDU which is reserved for this purpose. By contrast, administrative segregation is based on administrative rationale. The Department of Corrections has almost total discretion over these administrative decisions, most importantly a prisoner’sRead more
It would appear that your boyfriend got an incident report for some sort of internal violation for most likely possession of contraband. It could be a cellphone, drugs or something on the banned list. The penalty is disciplinary confinement which is the "hole", the SHU, or segregated housing used as punishment.

It depends on the quantity and the substance. It also depends on how it was brought in. The guards will want to know how they were smuggled in and who helped. If the inmate is cooperative, then the penalty might be a few weeks in the SHU. If they don't cooperate, there might be actual charges where time could be added to their sentence, new release date and definitely they would be transferred far away from home so that visitation would beRead more
Mostly correct, however, there are three days (per week) where the inmate gets one hour of rec in an outdoor cage-like structure by themselves.Read more
Inmates are frustrated and most lack any hope for the future, so they frown a lot. It doesn't mean that they are inherently angry, they're just in a tough situation and if you have to do time with them, you just need to know who are the ones to stay away from.Read more
Yes, SMART (Stress Management and Rehabilitation Training) is a prison-based program designed to teach inmates how to manage their stress, aggression, and trauma, building a foundation for a new life. The SMART objective is to make a life-transforming difference in the lives of all people within the criminal justice system, by teaching skills for reducing stress, healing trauma, and providing practical knowledge of how to handle one’s emotions, live to one’s highest potential and contribute to society. SMART aims to reduceRead more
Yes, you should do that. Ask to speak to the unit secretary, the couselor, the case manager or the wardenRead more
There are no limits to the length of a lockdown. The warden is the final decision-maker when the lockdown is lifted. The warden only answers to the head of the BOP. The BOP only answers to the DOJ and inmates do not have any "rights" except the right to privacy as it relates to their visitation list, phone list and commissary money spent.Read more
