I’m pretty sure the answer is no. But that got me wondering…why?
Googling daily routines in prison, it seems that inmates are required to get up very early in the morning (some cites list it as 4 am for some prisons!), and there is a set daily routine, even for those in lockdown (23 hours a day in cell).
Here is a cite:
Of course, for those with jobs it makes sense go make them get up and go to work, but what’s the point for those who will just spend all day sitting in their cells?
On what legal grounds can the prison force inmates to get up at dawn, if they’re prefer to sleep in? Of course I understand that you lose most of your legal rights in prison, but again, if you’re just confined to your cell all day anyway, isn’t it a little cruel to force them to get up that early - for nothing?
