Yes, the jails have "winter wear" for the cold months. This includes a jacket and some form of longjohn undergarments. Also, inmates may buy supplimental clothing at the commissary.Read more
They are not supposed to. However, it is a not so secret fact that smartphones get smuggled into prison every day. The prisons are trying to crack down, but the guards are usually the transporter so it's not likely to end anytime soon. We also know of services that inmates can pay to post their thoughts, etc for them.Read more
No, they are not allowed access to the internet but that doesnt mean they dont have access.Many inmates get smuggled smartphones into their facility. For a concervation camp, the security is minimal and it is very possible that could aquire access if they have someone help them (like a guard or visitor)Read more
ST/SP is also referred to as protective custody (PC). This is a type of imprisonment to protect a person from harm, either from outside sources or other prisoners. Sometimes it is the administration that decides, other times the inmate asks for protection. This is isolation or solitary confinement, not necessarily a "punishment" but a safety concern and it's for their protection. Jail and prison officials must know of the signs and characteristics of inmates that may need protective custody. Inmates such asRead more
Inmates are supplied with the essentials which include bedding and one blanket. This is not a hotel, this is a prison. They cannot call housekeeping and get another pillow or blanket. The only way is to barter for one with another inmate - there is always an inmate in every facility that is very plugged in and somehow has access to all kinds of contraband (for a fee). This scenario is a real possibility. My first week in federal prison, I wasRead more
It is like the movie "Goundhog Day". Every day is the same, there is nothing to distinguish one from another. It is boring and lonely, BUT you have to figure out a way to get into some sort of routine. For me, i am a creature of habit, i got myself into a routine that included working out, running, reading, playing poker (that was great for the evenings). I did 66 months in federal, so i made it out the other side.Read more
You stayed ONE night and are writing about the conditions?!? Many state prisons in Florida, Louisiana, Texas and Arizona have no A/C. Evidently, the founding fathers forgot to include air conditioning for inmates in prison when they wrote the Constitution. Man up brother, stay out of the "heat".Read more
Trustees are treated the very best by the prison staff. They get little benefits that go along way sometimes when you have so little to begin with.Read more
You have the right to send it, the jail has the right to reject anything they want. If someone there interprets your mail to him as a detriment or violation of something, then they will withhold it. This is law enforcement, you have less rights than you think.Read more
The inmate's only recourse is to file whatever report is within the inmate handbook. This is prison, and the staff doesnt want to be accused of anything related to lost items, etc. So be mindful in your advice to the inmate. Sometimes you have to just deal with the hardships and find away around the stuff you can't control. Having things taken, stolen, extorted from other by inmates (or guards sometimes) in prison is part of the terrain.Read more
