The inmate uses their commissary (and pay others for theirs) to inventory all of the popular items available and then sell to all the other inmates. The other inmates use the inmate's "store" to supplement their needs between commissary visits, or inmates that are on commissary restrictions. The items you buy from the inmate store come at a premium - in most cases, you get one item and pay back with two of the same items.

Safe is a relative thing. Only he can make things worse if he misbehaves. If he is able to follow rules without an attitude then he will get through this using his social skills like when he was on the street. Most inmates have to work. The hours are usually not long and you can imagine the pay is tiny, but it'll keep him in a routine (that is very safe) and even buy some extras at the commissary with what that...

If your husband is a habitual offender or had attempted to flee from arrest or detainment in the past, it is highly unlikely that he will get any home confinement. Being on disability will not get him any leeway or consideration for early release. He can earn work release or early release by being a perfect inmate. No mischief, no incident reports, no problems for the staff would put him in position for consideration IF there is a chance at...

Prison is a ONE, the very worse. There is no better way to spin it. Some days are better than others, but at the end of the day when you put your head on that crappy thin pillow (if you even get one), you are locked up and have no control over your life.

There is literally nothing you can do. If he truly fears for his life, he needs to report to the captain or lieutenant and ask to be placed in protective custody (PC). This is not a great option, but it is better than being someplace where you fear for your life.

You can support your inmate in a limited number of ways. You can visit, receive calls from him, you can send him money for commissary, you can send him magazine and puzzle subscriptions, and you can send him mail with holiday pictures that will keep him connected to the family unit until he's released.

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.

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.

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)

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 as first time...
