I have tried to research this and found nothing. What does SMU stand for? Are you certain he did not say he was going to SHU?

Keep the Faith

SHU is special housing unit, they are sent there as punishment. My brother was at Lewisburg years ago, but when he was sent to an SHU eight or nine years ago he was sent to Terra Haute. I thought Lewisburg was a regular USP.

SHU (Segregated Housing Unit) is not a PLACE, per say, but a seperate section within each facility. It can be used for punishment, holding, or protection for inmates. Sometimes inmates will spend as little as a couple hours there during the course of questioning in regards to an investigation or they may spend literally months for punishment.

Keep the Faith

My brother was there for 18 month. I wonder,if each facility has a SHU why did they send him someplace else? Could it be they just wanted him out of that particular facility? Anyway, I looked up Lewisburg just now and could find nothing about smu. Lewisburg is a USP, has training programs, drug programs etc. but that is all I could find. Sorry!! And Michael, thanks for clearing that up about SHU.

My man is in USP Lee and they are threatening him with going to Lewisburg for the SMU Program. Now he is scheduled to be transferred to his halfway house no later than March. He has already served 58 months. His release is in 13 months. THis program is supposed to be for 2 1/2 to 3 years. Would they really send him to PA for that short of a time? I do not like what I have heard so far about this place.
