Security Hypo

Suppose that there's this person who is entitled to a government-furnished lifetime security detail.

Now suppose that they are arrested for a crime and refused bail, or that they are convicted and sentenced to prison.

What happens? Does the security detail go into the jail/prison? Is the protectee placed in adseg for the duration of the sentence?

Asking for a friend....

All the SS personnel that wiped their phones. If there's too many of them, rotate them. And...oh!! the hoots and catcalls in the exercise yard...
The new Trump color (no longer red) but &*^%-scared green. Welcome to reality, *&^%head...

And: maybe when Trump and a substantial cohort of the GOP spends time in the slammer, we'll finally have prison rights reform.

There's this about conservatism and its belief that they is the good guys and therefore, Can Do No Wrong (example Number 284745: Trump assuming, by Divine Right, that he could waltz off with those papers)...never, ever...they are the good guys, the right guys and also have divine dispensation.

I've been wondering about that for a while. The only conclusion I can come to is the safest place to store it is a cage at Gitmo.

Yes, it ...

Heard good answer on talk radio today -- give the prison guards a quickie "Secret Service Presidential Detail" course, and declare them all to be his Security Detail.

Ideally, he'd end up with ones as conscientious / competent as those that let some random doofus run across the White House lawn and get into the White House.

Seems to me. That once you are convicted of a felony. The person loses his former rights and privileges.
I'm not a lawyer, but our esteemed blog host is and sure knows what that answer is ?
Of course , as has been proven multiple times in the past, tRump seems to be above constitutional law...

Spud, it depends on the law and the state. Those convicted of felonies can't own guns (other than blackpowder guns). In some states, voting is gone, in other states, that's restored. Some states bar felons from office, some don't. For example, Joe Ganim returned to being the mayor of Bridgeport, CT ten years or so after he was convicted of corruption while serving as the mayor there.

It'll depend on the law, for the Trumpanzees will vote for him, even if he were photographed in bed with Ivanka and Barron.
