    Hi
    I need to know what prison is like. A friend of mine is facing prison for stealing from a coffee shop. His sister who is my GF is petrified of what could happen to him, so to be in her good books I'm being a bit of a Miss Marple.
    If sent down:

    1) Will he be given the option of an open prison?

    2) What are prison gangs like, his sister has told me about gangs like Arran Brotherhood and Lokz 10 boyz and Islamist gangs etc will he need to join a gang for survival in prison?

    3) Are all new inmates subject to hazing and initiation?

    4) Will he be sent close to a prison near his home? I heard of a lad from Hampshire who got set to a prison near Manchester due to lack of prison spaces.

    5) What items should he take into prison? Will he be allowed his tablet which has most his coursework on?

    6) What will happen if he misses university field work and exams due to being in prison?

    7) Are inmates pressurised inti getting prison tattoos?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    there are numerous resources out there on the internet which will answer the questions you ask


    in theory everyone apart from those who are pre-assessed as cat A ( usually from remand) goes to one of the closest cat B 'local' prisons for assessment etc before being moved to the suitable part of the estate for their security classification and needs ... again for relatively short sentences this should hopefully be relatively local ( although in certain cases certain types of prisons are held in specialist can b and c prisions ot facilitate their attendance at the relevant rehabilitation and education to prevent reoffending courses ...

    Youve already been told he's highly unlikely to get a prison sentence for a first offence. How many more threads are you going to start up on the subject. It was a coffee mug.

    I'm sure he'll meet loads of nice people and make friends. And you're clearly having a laugh but seriously the answer to all your questions is no.

    I can't find many resources on prison gangs but is it advisable for him to join a prison gang for protection?

    No you won't have to join a ****ing gang. Keep your head down and sleep all day. Maybe give a prison guard a blowie for a pack of cigs ok.

    I really don't think rape jokes are appropriate, especially on a student forum.

    Prison in the UK is no hardship at all, seriously you are not really restricted, its better than being a road man.

    Oh have a humour, as no victims of rape have been offended, as the joke does not apply to them

    It's just because the local magistrates are making a crackdown on shoplifting and petty offenders and targets for custodial sentences are increased that's what the solicitor said after he did over the coffee shop that he could end up doing bird.

    How old is he?.... And is it his first offence?

    Overreacting much...he took coffee so it won't be hardly anything probably just community service the most would be a day in prison.
