Default Ad/Seg - What is it?

Hi everyone, I finally got a letter from my husband after hearing he was okay after the riot on C yard and not hearing from him for 2 weeks and in this letter he said to me that he is in the hole waiting to be placed in Ad/Seg? What does this mean and what is As/Seg exactly? Any information would be helpful since it is Friday night and I can't call until Monday.

THANKS!

Ad Seg, otherwise called the hole, is the jail within the prison. Inmates placed in Ad Seg are locked in their cells for 23 hours a day with no program and very few privileges, no phones, no TV, very little property. They can still write letters. They are usually placed in Ad Seg while under investigation for serious misconduct or for assaultive behavior.

Ad-seg is similar to the hole, but intended for long-term guests. He was put there as the result of being identified with a gang, being a danger to other inmates/staff, or for his own protecton.

I do know that he was placed there for his own protection. I am assuming this is better than being there invoulentarily. Thank you everyone for the info I really appreciate it.

Default a seg

Here in Nc a seg is admin seg as well. usually a cooling off time orbefore being chraged with the offence being wrote up for. If they are charged then it changes to disiplany seg. Prison within prison. How ever they are suposed to be afforded the same oppertunity for mail privliges as reg pop.
