    Really sad to hear this. I have no idea how probably doing something offline as you won't be allowed to use internet there . may i know what you actually ( if you don't mind ) accused of doing for this legal action? Again, Sorry mate. Hope you get some good news

    Will you have access to PC? To PC with internet? IF yes for how many hours per day?
    Are you good at writing?

    Sorry to hear about that. One thing I can think of is writing letters as content, mailing them to your friends on the outs, and they can transcribe them onto a computer/to the client. Not sure about having access to a compute and if you do, what sites are blocked, etc. So, that is my suggestion.

    If there are PCs with internet in jails, i'm going straight there!

    I'll be 100% productive, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    They only have access to the computers for 2 hours a day, the other 22 hours they are getting bummed by their cellmate. Tru story.

    I have heard selling your arse and blow jobs pays well in prison. My mate Charlie Floate told me so.

    that is really shitty man.
    I went to jail for 5 days once and it was a terrible experience. I couldn't imagine doing 5 years.

    It probably depends on the facility you're going to for how much access/time you'll have. I have a friend in a federal lockup and he's able to check his Facebook account and write and respond to messages there, but he doesn't have a ton of time, or maybe they're not supposed to use social media sites like that really, I never actually asked. I would think that writing would be your best bet, maybe a blog of some kind. You might even just write a diary/journal based blog. Start with the events that led up to your arrest/incarceration, and then update it with the current events of your time behind bars. Some people find that stuff interesting and you might develop a little traffic from it. Maybe write down what you want by hand first, then when you do get online you can just get right to copying it over. Try and make it as efficient as possible since you might not have that much time online. It would be really hard to recommend a lot past that until you know exactly how much time you would be able to devote though. Good luck.

    First things first, smuggle a dongle in up your area.

    Sucks to be you.
    If there are any opportunities you will find them there, I doubt people here have experience. If you get access to internet then about all methods here should be working fine.

    To be honest, there's really no LEGAL way for you to make a decent income in there..
    I've never been to prison but I did 6 months in county once. I dont know what kind of person you are, but your best bet to making a somewhat decent income (for prison standards), would be to either open a STORE, or a gambling house.

    With a store, you would lend people canteen items for double back when they get payed. Or you give them 2 for three back, or something like that. As for the gambling table, I really dont gamble too much so I don't know the exact rules.. All I know is that house always gets 10% of the pot

    On the inside, canteen (snacks) is your money. Everything is bought and paid for with canteen items because your not allowed to have cash on you. Your people on the outside would put cash in your account and then twice a week you can order from the canteen list (usually up to $75 each order)
    WITHOUT CANTEEN YOU STARVE TO DEATH
    WITH CANTEEN EVERYONE WANTS TO BE YOUR FRIEND AND THEY ARE LIKE BUZZARDS

    If I could give you one piece of advice - DONT ACT FRIENDLY WITH NO ONE, because they will take your kindness for weakness in a second. Also, never front items to anyone you haven't already became friends with., or else you WILL be fighting this guy over that little snack when he doesn't want to pay (or you say fuck it and everyone eventually finds out and will also try walking all over you)

    Not a fun experience, but not the worst thing in the world. People make prison and jail seem way worse then it really is.
    Just keep to yourself and do your time and itll be over before you know it.

    Good luck.

    BTW: Not very many prison's allow they're convicts to get on the internet AT ALL for ANYTHING. Imagine how much chaos that would cause if every convict was getting on facebook every day... They already have hard enough time keeping drugs out as it is, but if they ALL had internet access - GAME OVER -
    Many inmates do smuggle cell phones in, or pay another inmate to do it (usually cost about $500 if your buying a cell phone on the inside from another inmate), and sometimes if your allowed to go to work every day (usually once you only have a couple years left this might be an option), they will let you have a cell phone.

    Sorry to hear that m8, it would probably have to be some form of residual income. I'd say SEO & Affiliate Marketing. But time is against you so you'd have to move really fast to get everything set up and automated.

    Write your experiences while in a jail, and publish a kindle book when you are out. Add some drama (real or not) in and start a blog on blogger, promote your upcoming book on social sites.

    Your not locked up yet so while you still got your freedom start building relationships with multiple fat girls today so when you get locked up they can all send you money & support you.
