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

Excerpt from the  “Female Prisoner’s Handbook” from HMP Bronzefield.

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.

Remand Custody in Bondage 1 has now been published at for Kindle.  You can link to this product here.

This concept was first related by AdamT when his wife was handcuffed and taken into Remand Custody after a traffic incident.

  • 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.

All women, except for minimum security prisoners are chained in their cells.  No reading, masturbation, card playing or sex is permitted.

For appearances in 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, this does not 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 restrained as in the following illustration.

Prisoner Caption – Vika Part 1

Television presenter Vika had always been fiercely competitive, so when there seemed to be competition; developing to host a new show that was tipped to be a hit, she did whatever it took to crush it!

She subjected her main opponent to a campaign which involved coordinated death threats and vandalism against her property, causing her to remove herself from the public eye and handing the job to Vika (@vika_model). Until, that is, the trail of the investigation reacher her.

Charged with multiple offenses, she lost her jobs and eventually agreed to a plea bargain, under the terms of which she would report to prison withing 30 days to start her 4 – 6-year sentence.

She used that time to arrange a controversial photo shoot in which she was shown in various prison restraints, an attempt to make light of what had happened and her upcoming punishment and set the stage for a comeback when she is released.

It was widely condemned but made sure that she remained talked about, something that will be vital as she is locked away and removed from the public eye for the years to come.

Story – Audited – Young women sentenced, handcuffed and jailed

A text file by Luke Williams

If the restrictions that female prisoners are subjected to, you might find this other article of interest.

Nobody wants to be audited, but the new crime audits make being audited by the IRS look like a walk in the park. Under the terms of the Criminal Accountability Act, citizens are randomly chosen, and every aspect of their life and past is thoroughly investigated. Large amounts of data are available to investigators at the Criminal Audit Division of the FBI. Bank records, security camera footage from locations and times the audited person was known to be at, and cellphone records and emails are accessible.

(here is another awesome story by Luke Matthews)

The letter informing the recipient that they have been audited is hand delivered. From that point they have two months to fill out and return what is called a ‘declaration’ and a ‘bid’. The declaration is a list of all criminal offenses that the audited person thinks that they have committed, together with as many details as they can remember. The bid is the suggestion that the audited person makes about what their punishment should be. At this point, they have no idea what the CAD knows about what they have done. They are told that they must record every single crime they can recall, but in practice this involves a guessing game about what the investigators will be likely to find. The more that the audited person reveals about their criminal offenses (especially ones unknown to the auditors) the more likely the CAD are likely to be lenient. One of the ways in which they can be lenient is to accept a low bid.

Obviously, the complexity of all this makes hiring an attorney necessary. At the moment, the system is relatively new, so even the most experienced attorneys are still trying to find the best ways to help their clients. What crimes should they declare? What should their bids be like? They want to try and secure the lowest possible sentence but bid too low and the CAD will seek a total sentence that tends towards the upper end of the sentencing rules. Ultimately a judge decides, but they have not yet rejected an accepted bid or deviated much from the recommended sentence requested by CAD after a rejected bid. If the CAD attribute any additional crimes to the defendant beyond what they have declared, they can challenge them, but it invalidates their bid which may otherwise be accepted by the CAD with a recommendation for an additional element based on the added offenses. Rejection of additional crimes usually results in a criminal trial on those charges. If the defendant has already admitted to enough criminal offenses to warrant it, CAD usually requests that they be held on remand ahead of the trial, and this is usually granted and does not count towards any final sentence. So the incentive is there to be as thorough and accepting as possible.
