You might be surprised to learn that there is quite a process behind which an inmate is housed in after they are sentenced. To put it simply, the system doesn’t just place inmates anywhere they have an available bed. Instead, there is a process known as “Receiving and Orientation” or “Classification” where inmates are evaluated when they’re first placed into the custody of the Department of Corrections or Federal Bureau of Prisons. There are several determining factors in how an inmate is housed in to serve their sentence, including the location of the crime, the length of the sentence, the nature of the crime committed (violent, non-violent, sexual, or drug-related), ...

Almost one in five dog bites are severe enough to require medical help, according to the CDC.  Getting bitten by a dog can oftentimes lead to considerable costs to yourself and your loved one, resulting in tremendous medical expenses, trauma, and the chance of permanent disfigurement or scarring.  If you’ve fallen victim to a dog ...
