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 violate

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. Regardless, you can call or write the warden and ask what specific rule was broken to

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.

There is no set amount of time. It could be a couple of weeks to over a year depending on the severity of the offenses and if the inmate was contrite about what they did. When I got to FCI Miami, they put me in the SHU for a week. I did time with a guy that was caught with a cellphone and was already there nine months when i arrived. He was there a few more months and I

Inmates can be placed in the SHU for a variety of reasons. there are two designations, one Administrative and the other Disciplinary. If he was put in Administrative Segregation, it could be for their own protection if there is a credible threat. The other is if the rules were broken. He might have been in a situation where he didn't do anything but gets locked up for "investigation", and won't get released into the general population until there is a

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.
