SID is code for special internal investigation. The inmate is under investigation for an infraction of sorts. Normally, any inmate under investigation is relegated to the SHU (the hole, isolation) and cannot receive visits until there is a decision handed down.

This is not the type of crime that retribution by inmates is imposed. However, we would strongly advise you to NOT share your paperwork. We would get together a decent explanation of what occurred and when you feel the need to share your story, probably with some inmate gets close to you (and it's inevitable that it will happen), you need to have a very condensed version.

The prisons operate without having to answer to anyone on the outside. When an inmate gets put in the hole for fighting, they are at the mercy of the DHO, the Disciplinary Hearing Officer.

We don't think our answer would be anything but a guess. The honor farm is the best level of custody for an inmate and something must have triggered a classification change and lose that sweet job set-up. There might have been an accusation against him that was proven false... which would explain him going back and forth between details. Or, he might have gone to court and needed a change of location to facilitate it... it could be so many things.  But
