White Collar Prison

Life Inside a White Collar Prison

Introduction White Collar Prison

The inside of a White Collar Prison is not the same as what we see on TV or in movies. For one thing, it’s pretty boring. Most of my days are spent reading and writing letters to my family and friends. catching up on news from outside by watching CNN and MSNBC on the prison’s closed-circuit television system. working out (sometimes), or just sitting around reflecting on my situation or doing whatever else it takes to pass the time until I get out.

Most people in white-collar prisons are there for financial crimes — like fraud or money laundering — or non-violent drug offenses.

Most people in white collar prisons are there for financial crimes — like fraud or money laundering — or non-violent drug offenses. And while they’re still criminals, it’s easy to forget that they’re also victims of a broken system.

In fact, the most common crimes committed by white collar inmates are arguably among the least harmful: embezzlement and tax evasion account for nearly half of all cases.

According to a National Institute of Justice study, this is because “white-collar offenders tend to be more thoughtful and deliberative than violent offenders; they weigh options before committing an offense.”  So if you ever find yourself with an extra $20 lying around your house, don’t feel too guilty about not donating it to charity! You might have just reduced crime by 2%.

Even though those who commit fraud can’t blame their brains for leading them astray (at least not in any reasonable sense). female white collar criminals have higher rates of mental illness than other women: one study found that nearly 73% had been diagnosed with some kind of psychiatric condition at some point in their lives.

Male white collars do show higher rates of substance abuse issues as well as antisocial personality disorders—but only slightly higher than men overall (and lower than people convicted of violent crimes).

The prison population is mostly male, but more and more women are entering the system.

  • As with the rest of the country, more women are entering the prison system. It’s estimated that one out of every 107 American women has been incarcerated at some point in her life; that’s twice as many as were incarcerated 10 years ago.
  • Women tend to be incarcerated for drug offenses, fraud and money laundering—crimes which are more likely to be committed by women than men. They also tend to receive longer sentences than their male counterparts, which can have a significant impact on how long they spend behind bars and their ability to reenter society once released (hint: it’s hard).

Many people who enter into these facilities have jobs waiting for them when they get out.

Many of the inmates who enter into this facility have jobs waiting for them when they get out. These jobs often come from within their field of study, but in other cases, employers are willing to hire those who have struggled to find work for a long period of time. For example, one inmate’s job was as a prison guard and he was able to continue his career upon release because he had no criminal record or history of violence.

Other inmates were able to secure employment outside their fields after being released from this facility. One man worked as an artist before incarceration and found employment as a graphic designer after his release; another woman graduated with degrees in both education and psychology.

but became employed at an advertising agency after her sentence ended; another person started working as an accountant right away because he had been studying business during his sentence (his degree was in accounting). In some ways it seems like they all got lucky because they found good-paying jobs quickly upon release—but then again, maybe this isn’t luck at all. maybe it has more to do with having skills that make them employable regardless of what field they call home.

Many offenders with college educations find that their minds wander as they rehash old cases or worry about their families during the day.

Some of these offenders have children at home, some have wives and husbands whose lives are also being affected by the offender’s incarceration. Others are single and have no one to support but themselves. Regardless of family status, however, there is one feeling shared by nearly all white collar criminals: fear.

Fear of what will happen when they get out—will they be able to find a job? Will they be able to keep that job? Will their employer hold them accountable for what happened in the past? In this regard, white collar criminals are no different than any other ex-offender—we worry about our future.

People aren’t allowed to keep much money in their accounts — so if you want to buy anything from commissary, you have to ask your friends and family to deposit some funds.

If you’re in a white collar prison, there’s a decent chance that your sentence has included some form of financial restriction. In many cases, such as mine, this means that you can’t have access to much money at all.

The prison will hold on to whatever funds they deem necessary and put the rest into an account for you. This is where all commissary purchases are paid from (and also where they keep any funds sent via friends or family).

When I got here, I was given $50 upon arrival…but this was not enough for me to buy anything meaningful at the commissary. So what do you do if you want something? You ask your friends and family for help! Most people have family members who send them money every month or so;

consider asking them if they’d be willing to deposit additional funds into your account so that next time around when perusing the selection of candy bars on sale (or whatever else catches your fancy), you’ll actually have enough cash on hand without having to wait another week before being able to get another transfer from home.”

In prison, you cant exercise in the way you used to on the outside, but that doesn’t stop some prisoners from staying active the best they can.

In prison, you cant exercise in the way you used to on the outside, but that doesn’t stop some prisoners from staying active the best they can.

Some prisoners do yoga or other exercises in their cells. Some run or walk around their prison yard if they’re lucky enough to have one. Others play sports in their cells using makeshift equipment like tennis balls and broomsticks for soccer, basketballs for hoops (though these are actually illegal).

and tennis rackets with socks wrapped around them as paddles for ping pong. There are even people who lift weights while listening to music via earbuds connected to an mp3 player or smartphone.

which is considered contraband by many guards unless there is a special request put into place by someone high up in management at the facility. otherwise, it’s highly frowned upon if caught doing so because of how dangerous this could be while performing physical activity while simultaneously listening intently via headphones.

which has its own set of risks associated with it specifically due to safety concerns related directly back again having been mentioned earlier at all when talking about how important it is not only physically but mentally too sometimes especially if done right!

People are assigned jobs within the prison that help keep it running smoothly, but many inmates do them solely for extra pay.

People are assigned jobs within the prison that help keep it running smoothly, but many inmates do them solely for extra pay. Laundry, cleaning, food service and maintenance are some of the most common jobs in a white collar prison.

Some inmates are paid for their work and others do it as a way to get out of their cell for at least eight hours per day (meaning they also sleep in an actual bed). Others do it because they want to get released early from their sentence by earning time off through good behavior or harder labor.

When you’re being held at an FCI, a legal team may not be able to visit you at any time. If they do come by, they can only speak with you within earshot of a prison staff member.

When you’re being held at an FCI, a legal team may not be able to visit you at any time. If they do come by, they can only speak with you within earshot of a prison staff member. This is to ensure that your lawyer doesn’t get information about the prison or other inmates that could be used against you in court.

You can still communicate with your lawyer through letters and phone calls, but these forms of communication aren’t always reliable or secure—meaning it’s possible for them to be intercepted by prison staff members or other inmates.

To avoid this possibility, many white collar criminals prefer communicating with their attorneys through email or over an encrypted messaging service like Signal or WhatsApp instead of using traditional methods like snail mail letters (which aren’t all that efficient due to government regulations).

Inmates can earn time off their sentence by taking classes and participating in rehab programs like Alcoholics Anonymous.

You may be wondering how inmates earn time off their sentence. The short answer is that they can earn up to a day per month for completing certain activities within the prison. These activities are as follows:

  • Taking classes

If you’re interested in earning some time off your sentence, there are various educational opportunities available at the facility where I’m currently serving my time. Inmates can earn 3-9 days per month (depending on their security level) by taking a course called “Life Skills,” which involves learning about things like budgeting and parenting skills. They can also get 1-3 days per month if they participate in Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, or attend church services every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening.

  • Volunteering at an outside organization

You may not be surprised to hear that prisons encourage inmates who want to get out sooner than later to volunteer outside of them. If you’re looking for a job within the prison itself (as opposed to just doing work for someone else), volunteering is another way for inmates to get ahead when it comes to earning credit toward early release dates based on good behavior; this involves volunteering at places like soup kitchens or homeless shelters around town!

The rules and customs within white collar prisons differ greatly from other types of correctional institutions.

Unlike other prison environments, white collar prisons have different rules and customs. For example, you don’t get to choose your cellmate. You can request a room change if you need to be separated from someone who is giving you trouble or causing problems for the overall security of the facility; however, this can be difficult because it requires approval by prison staff and may take weeks or months to come through.

Another thing that makes white collar prisons different is that they have strict policies regarding weapons and drugs in cells: no guns or knives are allowed inside—only rubber pens with no writing tips attached; no weapons like brass knuckles; nothing made out of metal (including keys).\

All these items will be confiscated immediately upon discovery. Additionally, any chemicals used in drug manufacture. such as lye (sodium hydroxide) and aceton are not permitted in cells either because they could be potentially dangerous if ingested by prisoners trying to make alcohol or methamphetamine inside their cells. If a prisoner tests positive for drugs three times during their stay at this facility without having received treatment (such as counseling), then their sentence will be extended another 12 months on top of what was already given out through sentencing hearings for all offenses combined.”

Conclusion

It’s important to understand that the people who are in these facilities aren’t criminals by nature . they’ve made mistakes, but they’re still your neighbors, friends and family members. They deserve a second chance at life just like everyone else.
