NOT all prisons segregate those with sex crimes. In NH, I know through personal experience they don’t. I was there for 3 years and the guards used me and my fellow sex crime prisoners as human bait. We were intentionally put into rooms/cells with known troublemakers to see if they would attack us. I was nearly raped with a foreign object once but got away luckily. I still, to this day, have nightmares often about being in prison – and I have been out of prison for many years. It was a horrible, traumatizing existence and I have been diagnosed with PTSD because of it.
So, please check your specific prison to see if they segregate. NH doesn’t and I don’t think a lot of others do either. They claim it’s too expensive for them to segregate sex crime prisoners – which is an outright lie.
My advice: keep your nose out of anyone’s business, don’t watch people, don’t look into their rooms when you walk by, and keep to yourself as much as possible – IF you aren’t segregated. In prison, people are just looking for someone to vent their frustrations on. I saw a lot of horribly violent things happen to people in prison. It was a nightmare.
Just play it safe and keep your head down, but your eyes open while on the inside.
