Example text

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. As long as two years has been held constitutional, and thirty days has been held unconstitutional.

A 1990 national survey of prison wardens and superintendents (McShane and Williams 1993) found that fewer than half of the respondents (46 percent) felt that accreditation guidelines had any influence on their personal management style. Factors such as budget constraints, legal requirements, the quality of staff, and overcrowding had more impact on their management routines. Some state legislators have cited the difficulty of meeting the standards, fearing the cost and the potential for inmate lawsuits.
