Default Looking for inside perspective of Uintas

Hello everyone. My name is Sal from Solitary Watch News (solitarywatch dot com), and I've been working on a story on the use of control units and solitary confinement in particular in the Utah system. I've been in touch with a few guys in Uinta 2. The Utah DOC has been very difficult to get any worthwhile information from. If you or someone you know can help me understand how the Uintas work (how many inmates there are, what the differences between the various Uintas are, etc), that would be much appreciated. Also, always looking for people who have a loved one in the Uintas or have been in the Uintas and are willing to speak to media (full anonymity can be provided, and off-the-record information is always appreciated).

Feel free to send me a PM here if you're willing and able to help.

Advisory for PTO Members Regarding Requests from Journalists & Members of the Media, and Students/Researchers:

PTO welcomes journalists and/or members of the media to learn and educate themselves about prisons, prisoners, and their loved ones, as well as students and researchers doing research on these subjects.

We will, occasionally, allow the media or students/researchers to request information and personal stories from our members. However, PTO does not endorse any journalist, member of the media, story/report, media outlet, student/researcher, or educational/research institution.

If you decide to communicate with a media representative or a researcher, then you assume all of the risks involved. PTO is in no way liable for the outcome of the story/report/paper. Communication with members of the media and students/researchers is completely voluntarily and PTO holds no responsibility for the consequences of that communication.

PTO does not screen or authenticate any person(s) claiming to be from the media or from an educational/research institution, nor does PTO authenticate their motivations for obtaining the information.

As always, the disclosure of personal information (either yours or someone that is incarcerated) may have some serious repercussions. PTO has no way of predicting how the media or any researcher will present your story or that of your loved one. Any relationship with the media or any researchers is to be entered into at your own risk.

If you receive an unsolicited email or private message from a person claiming to be from the media or researching information for an educational or research institution, report it to the PTO Administration immediately.
