I've never done time at Hightower, but been through there on the way to and from Ramsey down in Rosharin. There's a women's unit right by it...Planes State Jail? Hightower gets a bad rap from most who know of it. A number of people go there with sex offense convictions and because of that from what I gather it's not the easiest place to do time. The grey suits/guards make it hard on you.

Administrative Directive (AD)-04.17, “Offender Housing Assignment Criteria and
Procedures”

♦ “Housing assignments shall be made objectively on the basis of an offender’s total record
and as required by the offender’s current needs and circumstances, as reflected in the
offender’s unit/facility file, Health Summary for Classification form, the information
contained in the offender’s computerized classification record and unit/facility record,
in order to ensure that each offender receives appropriate and adequate safety,
supervision and treatment.”

♦ “The following are criteria relative to offenders’ security characteristics which, in
addition to custody designation, shall be considered in making housing assignments:

.

a. Criminal history;
b. Current offense (type and seriousness), sentence length and amount of time
completed on sentence;
c. The offender’s age and number of prior adult incarcerations;
Page 8 of 44

d. Violent or passive tendencies;
e. Criminal sophistication;
f. Offender enemies;
g. Homosexual (both active and passive) tendencies;
h. Physical characteristics such as height and weight;
i. Security threat group affiliation;
j. Current institutional adjustment, as reflected in the offender’s disciplinary
record; and
k. Special safety requirements.”


If you google AD 04.17 TDCJ it refers you to a lot of stuff to do with PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) and you just have to work your way through it to find what you want. This that is posted above is from a summary report in 2016 to do with......I don't know what's to do with.....PREA.....housing. AD 04.17 is touched upon several times. It's not that hard to find
