I think ill probably go to young offenders Institution for a few good months for burglary in the riots they gave me a referral order and i fuc*ed it up im going back to court for breach so a chance ill go prison
What is it really like in young offenders Institution ? what do you do for the first night , how long do you stay in the cells a day ? is there a TV in the cells ? what is the showers like ? do EVERYONE go into one room and all shower together lol or is it single shower rooms ?
and if your sentenced do you HAVE to wear prison uniform cant you wear your own cloths when people visits ?
How long do you stay in the cells for ? and how long do you spend outside on a normal day if there is enough staff
and if you work in a yoi prison which one do you work at can you post ?

do not state at any point where you are/which court, this could go against you. keep your identity a secret on this forum

this is the government website about going to prison http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/CrimeJustic ... /index.htm

this is the website for arriving at prisoner
http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/CrimeJustic ... /DG_196235

should give you all the relevant information. the showers are like school showers, or gym showers.

as for what YOI's are like, if its your first time then the whole experience might be a tad overwhelming. prison is such a different world. its going to be noisy, crowded (don't expect much "alone" time). at times aggressive and violent. compared to what you have in your room at home its going to be the basics, bed,tv, kettle, table and chair. if you do feel scared/worried then do not show it. don't lend things to other prisoners, you will never get it back. try and be respectful to staff, you get on well with them and your time will be alot easier.
