  • NCPCF Testimony on Solitary Confinement submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee – Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights

    The rationale to impose solitary confinement is often contrived. Before trial, an inmate can be placed in solitary confinement for protective custody, and then have SAMs added, supposedly for prison security reasons, then be placed in the SHU for disciplinary reasons, and then after conviction he may be placed in the CMU or the Supermax supposedly for security reasons. In practice, solitary confinement is often imposed arbitrarily or for improper reasons such as to break a defendant down to prevent his testimony at trial, or to interfere in defense preparation, or to prevent legitimate communication, or to force the defendant’s cooperation in other cases.
