Prisoner Caption – Paisley

Paisley knew what she was doing was wrong, having an affair with her boss, but she didn’t know that her adultery would land her in so much trouble. When her bosses’ wife found out about the affair, she confronted him, and the fierce argument that resulted got out of control, and he killed her. He tried to make the scene look like a botched robbery, and left to tell Paisley his version of what had happened.

She agreed to give him an alibi, but this loyalty was repaid with betrayal. When he was confronted with forensic evidence that pointed to his guilt, he decided to try and blame Paisley to try and secure a deal for himself. His skilful attorney managed to convince
prosecutors of a story about Paisley’s psychological manipulation.

As a result, he secured himself a 15 to life sentence, and Paisley, having failed to combat this narrative at trial, was sentenced to 35 years to life, which she serves in super-max, denied even the slightest freedom, denied the right to speak with a large gag, and denied even the right to cover her naked body with anything like a real uniform.

Remand Custody Illustrated Bondage Restrictions

Very often, when a criminal proceeding has been taken against a person, they are notified by certified mail that they are to appear at a space of incarceration and the held “in remand” until their trial and sentencing.  Sometimes this is only a few months, but with the backlog in the court system, this can be as much as a two to three years.

Those who SUBSCRIBE to Archives BBS Member Site, are familiar with this concept, first related by Adam T when his wife was taken into remand after a traffic accident and further expanded upon in a series of articles by Felix Dartmouth in the “Remand Prisoner” series in the “felix10” folder for members.

  • All prisoners except minimum will be handcuffed behind their backs, and ironed from their jail cell to court
  • Guards are permitted to upgrade security level at any time
  • Guards do not have the discretion to downgrade security level
  • 45 days without incident will earn the prisoner a downgrade in security level, except those convicted of murder and assault
  • In all conjugal visits, the female prisoner will be handcuffed behind her back and ironed, as well as chained to her bunk by her throat with no more than a 24-inch chain.

Jo sat right next to me as she also looked at the table of restrictions.  “Oh my God,” she said, “I’m going to be locked in medium security if I’m on time, but if I’m late, look at the difference if they upgrade me to high security.”

So, there you have it!  Well, one of our readers, who is a prison security engineer,  has taken it upon himself to create an illustrated table of restraint icons which will give female prisoners a more graphic concept of the restraints that will be imposed on them.

Transportation is a critical time for any prisoner.  When a prisoner is out in the free world, the temptation is powerful to just bolt and run!  That is why all prisoners must be handcuffed behind her back, even minimum security prisoners.

Visitation time is permitted at varying intervals, but restraints are required.  Only relatives by marriage or attorneys may visit prisoners in remand.  There was some debate about women being allowed visits from their children and parents as to whether their restraints must remain locked on and it was decided that they must be in their chains.  Women may be permitted visits from their husbands, but no boyfriends or live-ins are permitted.  A marriage certificate must be on file.

For court, women are permitted to wear clothes brought by their relatives.  Guidelines stress that conservative clothes, such as a nice dress, blouse and skirt, pantyhose and high heels usually make the best impression on a judge and jury.  As is clear from the illustration below, women in maximum security remain in their jail issued uniform and are hooded, gagged, and chained.

Instructions are given a jury that just because a woman is shackled and perhaps gagged or hooded, do this reflect on her guilt or innocence.  They are to reflect on the full weight of the evidence against her before issuing their guilty verdict.

Remand prisoners are not required to be confined in their cell for 24 hours per day.  When out of their cell, in the common or recreational area, they are restrainted as in the following illustration.
