    There are a few good resources on line to prepare you for what you are going to be facing. Don t let fear control you, keep your head about you and keep your dignity intact. The first sixty days are very difficult since you will be locked up the majority of the time. Organize a TV to be sent to you before you go so that you don t have to wait too long on getting one. Check with them first as their are so many rules even regarding a simple thing like a TV. Don t create any problems for yourself or anyone else, don t involve yourself with drugs, you can ask to be on a drug free unit which simply put means that you get tested regularly. It helps you avoid some unnecessary tensions with drug users and may help you get out quicker. If you have good family support sign and get them to sign a DOC = Declaration Of Consent.



a) It lets the system know that there are people monitoring you and them.

b) It will give someone you trust on the outside the ability to act on your behalf if need be and also gives them access to things you might not be able to because of being incarcerated.

"I was is Springhill 3 times from 2003-2008. Spent most of it in Unit #8, and a few trips to the hole! I can say that Carlton is more than likely a fucking liar. 17 guys?!?!?!?!?! come on, at least make it believable and say 1 or 2. 3 hours?!?!?! The guards do rounds every hour. I m sure if you were in the shower for 3 hours, you d have some prisoners chewing you out for being in there so damn long. The guards might look the other way with small things, i.e. doing butt tokes, oil papers, or smoking a joint. But not for something as serious as a sexual assault. I highly doubt that the guards will put their cushy government jobs on the line to look the other way during an ass reaming. Just my 2 cents :)"

    It won t be a laughing matter when it is one of your own family or friends that ever finds themselves in a situation like this. I grieves me to know that there are such hateful people in the world. Almost every prisoner is released back into society and they might just end up living next door to you or your loved ones. It has been proven throughout the world over many centuries that draconian measures have a negative effect on inmates and effect their behaviors once released. When any human can wish the things that you have done and think they have some sort of moral superiority to those behind bars, they show themselves for who and what they are..Not much of anything.

"My brother has been in prison for 11 years now and I agree with you, if there was any raping going on those sick fucks will be hurting. And he has been in them all, Dorchester, now Springhill.

I miss him so so much. Thank god he is still the same person. All those years behind those walls and they never broke him yet. He s a tough cat. You have to be mentally strong. And what is up with the hole? I think that is just not human to lock someone in that little cell for 23 hours a day with no human contact, no nothing. It is not human, you won t to that to your animal. Love ya bro, hang in there. One or two left."

life on installments

"I agree with excon; i too was there from 93 until 97, again in 2004 until 2007, I have known hundreds of people in and out who have been there and if that happened {gang rapes}, there would be real trouble for the rapest. Not to say there are not rapest there but they wait to they go back to N.E.D. before they rape again."

"I was in Springhill 20 years.

curiouschicky: housing units are units or blocks, individual corridors with cells are ranges or tiers. minimum sentence is supposed to be two years, but sometimes the province makes a deal for shorter term men to go to the fed because there are programs there, or for some other reason. The max is life.

I tend to doubt the rape stories above. Never saw such. No shortage of guys who like it, no reason to rape. Of course there was some rape, but mostly not. Guys who rape other guys are still rapists and I feel they should be put down like a dog that bites."

"I am just a friend trying to figure out some jail terms. I have a friend that went to Springhill and says they call each section of the jail Blocks. But then I have my fiance who was there and said ...they are devided into units each unit is devided into ranges so which is true? What is the minimum sentence to go to Springhill, what is the max if anybody knows write back"
