hi, my boyfriend messed around and instead of maxing out today, got sent to lock-up 5 days ago and lost all his good time. the social worker and classification told me he will be in lock till june. Can anyone tell me about lockup or asay or whatever its called. they told me he can only be visited on thursday morning at 8am. do they still get mail and commisary and can they send out mail or use the phone. any info would help. Not knowing anything about it has me very frustrated. thanks for your time. mened
It's called ad seg or administrative segregation. It means he is locked in a single small cell for 23 hours/day. One hour out for either recreation or shower [not both on the same day]. Also they start in ad seg w/no radio/tv and limited reading material and earn these items back w/good behavior. He can receive and send mail and can use the phone maybe about once a day, at best. Not sure if there are any limitations on what he can order from commissary. Visiting is non-contact only and typically only one hour/week. Hope this info. helps you understand the limitations of ad seg!
