Can an inmate be placed in RHU without knowing how long there going to be in there for?
An inmate may be placed in the RHU (restricted housing unit) for any number of reasons and because of this it is hard to tell for how long they may be held. If there was contraband involved etc there may be an investigation going on as to what happened, who was involved etc. They may be held in the RHU until the investigation is completed and then may end up being sentenced there for any number of reasons for any length of time if found guilty, or released because there was no evidence to support the allegation. Not saying this is why he is in there but just using that as an example.
And even if we did have more facts it would be hard for us to judge how long he may be held in the RHU. If he is going to be held in the RHU after an investigation he will be told what his sentence is (how much longer he will remain in the RHU).
