Example text

The court ruled that the totality of conditions did not violate the Eighth Amendment and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed. There is little consistency in the courts’ rulings concerning the length of time officials may legally segregate prisoners. In Hewitt v. Helms (1983), the United States Supreme Court stated that administrative segregation status cannot be used by administrators as a pretext for indefinitely confining an inmate. Lower courts have differed considerably, however, in determining when the length of a particular confinement violates the Constitution.

Administrative Segregation Administrative segregation is a general term used in institutional corrections that refers to restrictive housing units, cell blocks, or facilities specially designed for disruptive inmates.

Administrative segregation inmates are transported to and from their cells with an officer escort. The inmate is in handcuffs and perhaps in waist or leg restraints. Inmates are usually handcuffed whenever they are out of their cells, except during recreation and visits. Prisoners may be required to take their recreation alone or in small groups during limited time periods. Correctional officers who work with disruptive inmates often wear protective vests and have additional training in the safe and effective use of physical force, batons, and chemical agents.
