Default Confinement in the "Box" / Will it affect my son's release date?

How will confinement affect my son's release date? He got into a fight, that was initiated by the other inmate and they both were sent to "the box." He says that in Graceville prison you have to fight or they will pick on you!!! He says there has to be an investigation b4 he is sent back to his pod.
I thank GOD that he was not hurt.

Every state is a tad different....shoot, every CO/facility is different, so I've moved your thread to the Florida forum.

I hope it turns out to be nothing major and that it doesn't affect his release!

You didn't provide enough information for us to know if it would affect his release date. Is he close to his release date? Is he still earning gain time? That's stuff that we'd need to know.

He can't earn gain time while he's sitting in confinement. I can tell you that. So for however long he is in the box, either for the investigation or as punishment, he won't be earning gain time. And in addition to the time that he can't earn while he's in confinement, there is also the possibility that they will take gain time he's already earned away from him as part of a DR.

They don't like fighting and they don't usually care who started it, especially because it is hard to prove unless there were cameras in the area.

Graceville, from what I hear from someone who was there for a few months recently, is not the type of place where you "have" to fight.

i think maybe by "fight" she is implying stand up for yourself because at any florida criminal house if you dont do that you will gravatate more problems. i dont know how often they update or even if they do at all the release date on the DOC website but maybe check there...Rules
