How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Boston Marathon Bomber May Be Sentenced to Most Isolated Prison in U.S.

United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility (ADX)

Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev faces two likely, grim possibility – the death sentence or life in one of the most destructive prisons in America, “a place so isolating that it has been called a clean version of hell,” NBC News reports. 

The United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Colorado, also known as ADX or supermax, is reserved for the most dangerous criminals, such as terrorists.

Tsarnaev’s defense team on Wednesday argued against placing Tsarnaev at ADX, which is a 490-cell prison in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, saying he would become so isolated that he’d be separated from the world forever.

In ADX, prisoners are confined to their cell for 23 hours a day in solitary confinement in 12-by-7-foot cells with a little window and thick walls. Meals are handed through a slot in the door.

“It breaks down the human spirit, it breaks down the human psyche. It breaks your mind,” former supermax inmate Garrett Linderman told CBS’ 60 Minutes in 2009.
