If a prisoner in Massachusetts inherits money , can it be put into a trust so that it is protected from the DOC and other prisoners?
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Does the prisoner owe any restitution as part of his sentence?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No he does not.

Thank you for your response.

If the inmate does not owe any restitution as part of his sentence, then any inheritance he receives can be placed into a trust for the inmate and a trustee appointed to oversee his trust for his protection. The trust can be made an irrevocable trust to protect him from any creditors trying to get to the trust for payment of any debts.
