Default South Carolina sentencing question

Hi I just was writtig because I want to know if anyone would know exactly what the charge a loved one was given what it means . They are currently in the kershaw correctional institution and they were sent to lockup for over a month going on now and all I could find from the public records was these charges

1. UNAUTH I/M ORGAN/PART STG OR STG ACT
2. POSSESSION OF A NEGOTIABLE INSTRUMENT

And on their disciplinaries it said:

ďDISC. DETENTION FOR 30 DAYSď

Iím trying to figure out exactly what do rhose charges mean that they were charged with and also what does ď DISC. DETENTION FOR 30 DAYS ď mean exactly and when does that timing start exactly if it from the date that incident occurred

If anyone would know the answers please let me know I would really appreciate it. Thank you in advance .

1. Is organized security threat group or gang
2. Is a check that isn't theirs

Disc is disciplinary so they got in trouble inside for something causing them to go to segregation or the hole.

Welcome to Prison Talk. Here's a link to the SCDC inmate disciplinary program statement.
http://www.doc.sc.gov/policy/OP-22-1...2063644141.pdf

Although the initial punishment should have ended after 30 days, it is possible to catch new charges during disciplinary detention in the SHU.

"Organ" is short for organization, Unauthorized Inmate Organization. From SC DOC:

Quote:
832 Unauthorized Inmate Organization Activity or Participation in a Security Threat Group (STG) or STG Activity: Any participation of any inmate in any organization which has not been approved or any informal organization, association, or group of three (3) or more inmates that has a common name, and whose members or associates engage or have engaged in activities that include planning, organizing, threatening, soliciting, or committing unlawful acts of misconduct classified as serious threats or potential threats to the safety and security of the public, the Department, employees, visitors, and/or other inmates, or any other group that has been designated a Security Threat Group by the Agency Director. Possession of STG material is sufficient to warrant this charge. (Sentence in BLUE, added by Change 1, dated April 23, 2013.)

In the same file, I can't find "negotiable instrument", but there is the following:

"906 Possession of a Purchasing Instrument: The actual or constructive possession by an inmate of any item which may be used to buy, sell, or exchange any commodity/service from any individual, whether that commodity/service is authorized or unauthorized. This includes, but is not limited to, cash, green dot cards/numbers, pre-paid phone cards, personal or blank checks, money orders or postage stamps."

The legal definition of "negotiable instrument" according to Merriam-Webster:

Quote:
Legal Definition of negotiable instrument

: a transferable instrument (as a note, check, or draft) containing an unconditional promise or order to pay to a holder or to the order of a holder upon issue, possession, demand, or at a specified time
https://www.merriam-webster.com/legal/negotiable%20instrument

EDIT: He'll have to tell her in a letter exactly what he had...sounds like it could have been any number of things.

This is a charge for using a Green Dot card or similar prepaid debit card that is against SCDC policies. They have lost their priveliges and will be held in the SMU or lockup for a 30 days.

What happens there ? And would anyone know if they can call home or write letters and such to
that facility ?

He'll have the mental health issues addressed at a particular facility and then complete the restriction time for the infractions he received.
