You got lucky! We have no ad to show to you!
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 SHURead more
This happens when an inmate breaks enough rules or has been involved in fighting or smuggling contraband where the administration will change the inmate's classification requiring them to be housed in a more secure facility with fewer freedoms and privileges. Whatever the reason, it's not a good thing for the inmate.Read more
It's probably a bad idea. There are shakedowns happening all the time, if they find them, they will be confiscated and the inmate could face disciplinary action such as a stint in the SHURead more
Administrative segregation refers to both a classification and a type of unit. There are at least three distinct types of segregation: administrative segregation, disciplinary segregation, and protective … Any of these types of segregation might involve a regimen of solitary (or near solitary) confinement. Administrative segregation (ad seg) is when an inmate is housed separately from the main prison population. In most prisons, ad seg is another term for solitary confinement. Typically, inmates get "put in the hole" if they violateRead more
Telephone calls from the SHU are limited to one 15-minute phone per week, unless he was caught with a cellphone, then there would be no calls until he was back in general populationRead more
He will probably lose his work privileges and spend a few days or weeks in the SHU (the hole). There are no set time limits for punitive stays, it's up to the lieutenant that wrote him up.Read more
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 whoRead more
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. Regardless, you can call or write the warden and ask what specific rule was broken toRead more
An inmate in the SHU is limited to one phone call per week. They are not allowed access to messaging. This is when postcards become an inmate's best friend.Read more
Life in the SHU is no fun. There is literally no limit to the amount of time they can hold an inmate in solitary confinement. They can receive mail but might be limited to only one 15-minute phone call per week, limited commissary choices and maybe no visits. It is up to the lieutenant to decide how long.Read more
