Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, if they did not charge him, legally internal administrative punishment is at the sole discretion of the department of corrections. So, the only recourse he has would be to file an appeal through the facility's internal appeals process, but if they deny his appeal, until he is charged criminally, he would have no other recourse.

Since they are the ones making up the charges i dont really hold out much hope that they will help him at all. Theyve been trying to catch him since he got there. I feel the whole thing is a crock of crap anywAy .why would you sentance a so called drug addict to a place that is full of drugs anyway.nobody comes to visit him so they cant say its him sneak or his family sneaking anything in...its the most crooked thing ive ever heard of and the fact that you are just helpless is unjust and against his constitutional rights
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Sounds like this is a big ripoff too and i would like this canceled at once or i will contact my real lawyer
