According to the FCI Danbury Admissions & Orientation Handbook, the inmates have to be up at 6 AM Monday-Friday. Weekends, however, have a more leisurely feel to them.
The handbook explains, “On Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, normally the first controlled movement will begin at the conclusion of the morning meal. The Compound will be secured at 9:30 a.m., in preparation of the 10:00 a.m. count.”
What is special about the morning meal on weekends? The handbook details that, “During the feeding of the brunch meal, inmates can normally move to the recreation yard, gymnasium, or chapel; however, you must remain secured inside those areas until the next controlled movement is announced. The movement periods will resume after the brunch meal.”
Jail really doesn’t sound so bad if you ask us. You can grab brunch and then head to the gym to work off the calories you ate. Not the worst thing, right?
