Imagine having to live in an 8×8 room with a stranger. Only this stranger has committed, god only knows what crimes. Could you deal? Prisoners have said that you are basically living in a bathroom. This area contains your toilet as well as your bed and everything for your day to day living.
As a prison inmate, this is your living situation for the course of your stay in prison. During this time, you really have no choice in your cellmate. Or could there be a way to change this?
What is the process of changing a cellmate? A prisoner can always ask for a cell change, which would be safer than asking for a new cellmate. They need to be ready to give a full explanation of why it would be necessary. One way to ensure a cell change is to get into a fight with your cell partner. Many times, this could be the only way to get the transfer.
