He Said No, She Said Yes to Circuit Breaker

One woman was given a sentence of probation for her participation in the circuit breaker. The story about what happened is now going viral on social media.

The Circuit Breaker is a punishment that has been given to those who have committed crimes and are sentenced to prison time instead. It’s where inmates stay locked up 23 hours per day, with one hour allotted for exercise or other activities outside their cells, such as showers and phone calls.

Inmates can request a break from the Circuit Breaker by proving they’re not an escape risk or by having medical problems which would be exacerbated by staying confined all day long.

This woman requested a break from the Circuit Breaker due to health reasons, but was denied because she refused to stop exercising at her cell. That’s when she locked herself in the cell and started doing squats.

Her sentence was supposed to be two years, but was reduced to one year with good behavior and for obeying prison rules.

Das Verbrecher in Einzelhaft 23 Stunden pro Tag gehalten werden, mit einer Stunde die ausgeben für Übung oder andere Aktivitäten außerhalb ihrer Zellen, wie duschen und Telefonanrufe.
