County jail's biggest problem is the limited amount of things for inmates to do. Boredom could cause conflict when you have dozens of guys sitting around and getting on each other's nerves. County jail is three square meals and a lot of down time. If you inmate has some street smarts he will figure out who not to mess with. Most of all, this is nothing like what they show on TV. County jail time is a collosal waste of valuable...

Any of the state SCI facilities in Pennsylvania are serious institutions. It is possible that your son has been in a few fights or so if he's been in the RHU a few times. But we are not wanting to alarm you becasue it is also possible he beat up someone, instead. The RHU is either for disciplinary reasons or adminstrative reasons. The latter could be protective custody, but we do not think that is the case or he would...

How does a guy with a double assault charge allow ANYONE to take from him without getting a little crazy?If he allows another inmate to take his stuff, then he can expect more of this to happen. We are not advocating that he get into fights, but the predators that he's locked up with will see this as weakness, him an easy mark and they will continue taking from him until there is nothing left to take. He can be...

What facility are you inquiring about, they are all different? Custody levels and sentence lengths have a lot to do with the conditions. Inmates with more time and less freedoms tend to be a harder time for the inmates.

We would not know about all inmates and what they will or won't do while incarcerated. But, most inmates are not looking for a sexual relationship with same sex partners. However there are inmates that do - and this is a real relationship. Some sexual relationships start out as a predatory attack and are raped. This leads to a forced relationship where the weaker inmate cannot fight off the attacks and submits to this night after night.

It depends on him. If he is in other inmate's business, they will find a way to be in his business. If he keeps to himself and shows the respect he will not encounter any problems. It is when inmates "big deal" themselves which cause others to investigate their charges that you run into issues. Domestic violence charges are not as dangerous as sodomy potentially could be. Our advice, keep your mouth shut.

Yes, it definitely happens but the prisons handle them differently. There are some designated facilities for sex offenders that keep them away from the inmate population that would take jail yard justice out on these cho mos.

Prison rape is real but it's not pervasive in every facility. Rape can happen to an inmate in a 24-hour DUI holding cell or in a maximum security prison. Surroundings and circumstances are different but the outcome of rape could happen in any one of the fifteen-thousand plus detention facilities in this country.

It depends on the level of custody the prison where your cousin is headed as the higher security has longer term sentences with inmates who have little to lose when they fight. However, the conduct inside a prison is nothing like what you see on television. But, fights could occur in any level prison or jail if there are conflicts. The same could happen on a street corner, a restaurant or a store. The likelihood of altercations will depend on...

Rape in prison is real. New inmates are the most vulnerable. The security level of the prison has some bearing on whether rape is more likely. Rape can be forcible or done through manipulation.  If they show kindness or are trying to be helpful, it is only because they want something. And if there offering you protection you can guarantee that there going to seek sexual favors. When an inmate comes in for the first time and doesn't know anyone, the...
