Welcome to Prison Talk. bop prisoners are forbidden from having copies of their presentence investigation reports, and can receive a conduct violation for having them. Since it would probably have to arrive in the mail, and be subject to mail room investigations, it is usually possible to get by by saying "I don't have papers".

I passed through some US Penitentiaries, and spent the majority of my sentence in Medium security FCI's and was never hassled for my "papers". The higher the security level of the prison (and especially in some of the notoriously dangerous ones), the more likely it is to happen. The inmates who I observed being pressured/confronted for their criminal histories were usually trying to join an existing group, gang/"car"/whatever .
