Prohibited Inmate Personal Property
Under the Court Security Improvement Act of 2007, two new provisions were added to the Federal Criminal Code.
Title 18 U.S.C. Section 1521 established a criminal offense for filing, attempting to file, or conspiring to file, a false lien or encumbrance against the real or personal property of a Federal Judge or Federal law enforcement officer.
Title 18 U.S.C. Section 119 established a criminal offense for making “restricted personal information” publicly available about a “covered person” with the intent to threaten, intimidate, or incite a crime of violence against such person. Covered individuals include court officers, jurors, witnesses, informants, and Federal law enforcement officers. For purposes of each of these provisions, Bureau of Prisons staff are Federal law enforcement officers and covered by the Act. Therefore, inmates are prohibited from obtaining or possessing Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Lien Documents and Personal Information of Law Enforcement Officers and Covered Persons, UCC financing statements and similar forms.
Inmates are also prohibited from obtaining or possessing any documents which contain unauthorized personal information, including, but not limited to, home address, home telephone numbers, social security number, personal email, or home fax number of any jurors, witnesses, informants, or of any federal official, including, but not limited to, Bureau of Prisons staff, United States Attorneys, Assistant United States Attorneys, Judges, and other Federal agents. Possession of personal information about immediate family members of a covered person is also prohibited.
If an inmate is found to be in possession of these types of documents or information, the items will be confiscated. The inmate will be subject to inmate discipline, and your case may be referred for possible prosecution. Inmates may use the Administrative Remedy process to challenge the confiscation or rejection of such materials.
