    If I’m not mistaken, any money that prisoners get is forfeited to the State. If that is the case, give it to them.

    What was that Federal court thinking unless the prison systems charges room and board costs like county jails do.

    I heard today that prison system can take 1/2 the money to pay costs, restitution, etc. Still, this is nuts.......

    It all boils down to poorly written legislation, rushed through Congress and then hurriedly signed into law so everyone could try to make political hay with the voters. I'm just surprised that when they closed down those prison jobs to maintain social distancing that they all didn't qualify for unemployment benefits too.

    I have to give Kym Worthy credit when the female inmates at Huron Valley Correctional sued the state for being sexually assaulted by the guards and won judgements. She filed attachments to their checks for restitution owed the state for their incarceration.

    Won't put a dent in the $26k +$1200 a month a perp that beat my brother in law owes us. We pretty much financially destroyed him. Oh well, he's not wearing diapers in a wheel chair.
