i'm sure he could somehow. I wonder if he'll need it. I hear so many conflicting stories about prisons.

I can't speak for American prisons as I'm in the UK but here he'd be classed as a vulnerable prisoner and housed with other vulnerable prisoners. This does not mean preferential treatment in any way, nor does it involve being separated (from other vulnerable prisoners). It's likely that he will be befriended by other prisoners and will pay protection in some form- that might not necessarily be with money (which is usually transferred between two parties on the outside) or material items (chocolate bars, phonecards etc...), but might take the form of entertaining them (comedy and life stories, not 'entertaining' them). He'll undoubtedly be advised against paying a financial cost, both by his legal team and prison staff as the costs of illicit protection can quickly spiral. Joey is right, it is the noise,the lack of freedom, the lack of sleep, lack of privacy etc... that is the hardest to overcome and a lot of it will boil down to if he attempts to integrate or not.

with his arrogance, i don't know if he'll try to mingle, i'm sure he never saw himself in a pickle like this, i'm sure he wakes up saying "how did I get here?" It's crazy how many shenanigans they pulled to get him in there and I'm sure if he thinks about it enough, he'll realize it was his own big mouth that got him put there. I honestly don't think on a legal basis he should be there, on a moral basis, of course but the legal system is suppossed to operate on a lot of structure which should have protected him. He's in the unfortonate position where no one is going to defend him, public opinion certainly isn't going to help him. Maybe, in a few years, like Ali's case, people will realize it wasn't a proper application of the law. I think he'll be lucky to survive prison and his remaining years will be spent dealing with this case and if he does get out, he'll have to cope with millions in civil suits. there are enough women to hit him with a class action suit.
