Prisoner Matt Whyte in the hole

Matt was sent to the hole last week for "threatening an officer." After a week in the Segregation Housing Unit (the hole) at Taft Correctional Institution, he attended his preliminary hearing, where it was decided that the charge against him would not be dropped. He must attend a hearing next week, where the duration of his time in the hole will be decided. He
said that it looks like he will get 30 days in the hole (not counting time spent there waiting for his hearing), as well as 27 days loss of good time.

Matt is not allowed to have books, magazines, or anything else to keep himself busy right now. He is under lock down 23.5 hours a day, and 5 days a week is allowed time "outside" in a metal cage half the size of a basketball court. He is only allowed one 5-minute phone call every 30 days. Please write him a letter of support if you get the chance! Letters are his
only form of communication with the outside world right now, and he has little else to occupy his time.

You can write to him at:
