Are you wondering what Joe Giudice is jail sentence will be like? ABC News, March 31, 2016, found out what the days will be like for Joe at Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institution.
Joe Giudice was given a copy of the Federal Bureau of Prisons handbook and inside the pages, there are numerous rules that he is expected to follow. And, if he thinks that being a celebrity will cut him slack, a representative for the Federal Bureau of Prisons said it would have no influence at all in the treatment he receives while at the prison.
“It is the mission of the Federal Bureau of Prisons to protect society by confining offenders in the controlled environments of prisons and community-based facilities that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure, and that provide work and other self-improvement opportunities to assist offenders in becoming law-abiding citizens.”
Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institute living arrangements is made up of 12-man and two man living quarters. There is no word on which type of living quarters Joe is scheduled to reside in. At 6 a.m., the inmates are roused from their sleep to eat breakfast. Lunch is served at 11 a.m. and dinner is served at 4 p.m. every day, except on the weekends and holidays. During those times, coffee hour begins at 6:30 a.m. and lunch follows at 10 a.m.
“The Food Service Department provides nutritious and appealing meals, served in adequate quantity, in accordance with the national menu. All meals served are intended to meet the basic needs and desires of the general population.”
The inmates at the Fort Dix Federal Correctional Institute are served nutritious meals including baked fish, macaroni salad, and a vegetable like green peas. When it is dinnertime, they may be served chicken-fried rice, bread and their vegetable may be steamed broccoli. Inmates that have enough money in their accounts can buy snacks from the commissary including, cookies, macaroni and cheese, chips, and granola bars.
Inmates are required to wear special uniforms to wear and every person serving time is given a specific job to do at the facility. However, if the inmate is not working, then he can wear athletic clothing instead. There is one mandatory regulation and that is the inmate must wear a shirt at all times unless the prisoner is in bed.
According to the handbook, “Whatever clothing is worn, must be tucked in. You are not permitted to mix and match uniform and athletic or recreational clothing, (For example; the uniform shirt cannot be worn with recreational clothing or vice versa). The only exception is that athletic footwear is allowed with the uniform during evenings and weekends when inmates are not assigned to work or visiting.”
Joe can receive visitors during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., every Sunday, and Monday, and Thursday through Saturday. His visitors can even come on federal holidays. Unlike Teresa who had internet access, Joe will have 300 hours phone time every month. Although that seems like a long time each call is limited to 15 minutes.
There are no conjugal visits, so that means that Joe must remain celibate until his release. the rules are very strict on this subject and sex between inmates is strictly forbidden as well. A former Inmate told Radar Online that during the times when Joe needs a woman, he had better watch porn. with their spouses
“If he’s going to do it, I guarantee he’s going to get kicked out. It would be the biggest mistake of his life. Don’t even think about it.”
