>> while the jail will attempt to find russell a new cellmate, they also sanctioned him by taking away four days of recreation time for refusing his prior cell assignment. russell says it's worth it. >> you don't put yourself in a position where it's going to jeopardize your time. it had nothing to do with fear. for real, it had to do with common sense. if you hate somebody, you just don't deal with them. in your cell, you can't get away. that's one place you can't get away from the person. you know what i'm saying? so you have to be able to at least have a common ground with your cellie. the only common ground with mine is you have to be compatible with what i am. coming up -- >> and you have to use the $5 bills. when you hold it up to the light, it's got the strip. it says usa 5 on it. >> christopher russell shares secrets of his life as a counterfeiter. then -- >> i say he gave me good four licks. i gave him about good five, six licks. >> jonathan lacey and andrew

10:27 pm
people if they didn't do things the way he did them. >> though lacey has kept it a secret from other inmates, he is convicted of aggravated sexual battery against a victim under the age of 13. >> i think inmate lacey is a bully. a couple of inmates said yesterday he would make statements about he can't stand people that commit crimes against children. things of that nature. i think he was trying to build up a rep, and i think he was trying to avoid anyone thinking that's why he was in jail. >> all people have to do is say one little thing, you know what i'm saying, and these [ bleep ] deputies will go with it. i'm not threatening nobody. i'm trying to do my time like everybody else and get the [ bleep ] out of fairfax. coming up -- >> he's a child molester. i heard he [ bleep ] a little kid. >> jonathan lacey's charges spread like wildfire. and after christopher russell

the fairfax county adult detention center is managed by a team of sheriff's deputies. stacey kinkaid is part of that team for 26 years. now as the first woman ever elected sheriff of fairfax county, running the jail is her primary responsibility. as for the inmates she says her approach is firm but fair. >> this is jail, that's just how it is. our major concern is safety and security. we have rules and regulations. the inmates know those. this is our house. wile you're a guest, you have to obey the rules. >> when inmates violate the rules, the penalties are stiff. they can be assigned to disciplinary segregation and allowed out only three times a week for a shower. they're not allowed possessions except for a religious book. their mattresses are removed during the day, forcing them to
10:33 pm
lie on a concrete slab. >> there has to be a consequence for their action. you can't let people do whatever they want. they won't change their behavior. >> and even though inmates complain about jail food -- >> it looks like [ bleep ]. i don't know what's in it. i wouldn't eat it on the street, then i don't eat it in here. >> it's worse in disciplinary segregation. >> except on sundays, every meal consists of nutritional loaf. a dry mixture of beans, bread and vegetables. to be honest, it doesn't have a lot of taste at all. it's just like kind of like chunky water. that's maybe about the best way to describe it. >> christopher russell has spent the last eight days in disciplinary segregation and has another two weeks to go. >> i guess it's a deterrent to try to keep you from not wanting to come back. >> is that going to work for you as a deterrent? >> that's not. no. >> he was caught with medication, and trying to sell the medication.
10:34 pm
it wasn't just his but also someone else's he should not have been in possession of. >> how did they find these? >> somebody told. same way everything else gets found. this is my life. this is what it's all come down to. take a lot more than this to break somebody. well, to break me anyway. >> drugs not only landed russell in segregation, they also brought him to jail. he was convicted of heroin possession with intent to distribute. his original sentence was ten years with seven suspended. meaning he must serve three and as long as he stays out of trouble he won't have to serve the rest. that can prove challenging. >> the last 12 years have been on heroin real hard. there's times where i have thousand dollar-a-day heroin habit. you know, and with not having a job, it's not always the easiest thing to accomplish. >> how do you pull that off? >> selling, robbing, stealing. doing what you got to do, you know what i'm saying?
10:35 pm
there's a whole bunch of ways to get money. >> and for russell, that meant making it. the first step to his counterfeiting scheme was to bleach the ink off $5 bills and print new denominations on them. >> you go to the store and they take that pen out. you can hit that with my pen and it's good to go. because it's real money. all the pen is telling you is whether or not that bill is made out of the same paper that money is made out of, and it is. you have to use the $5 bills because when you hold it up to the light, it's got a strip on it that says usa 5 on it. $1 bills don't have that strip. if anybody pays enough attention when they hold it up, the bar is still there. nobody reads the bar to see what it really says, you know. so just put it all on there. >> the scheme worked for a while, but eventually landed russell an 18-month sentence in federal prison. >> i don't know how to go out there and deal with life the way life really is. this is comfortable to me,
10:36 pm
unfortunately. but this isn't what i want. >> now word is getting around the jail of another sort of counterfeit. jonathan lacey was recently moved out of his housing unit for bullying other inmates. he was also making demeaning comments about sex offenders. that's not unusual in jail, but lacey has kept the secret of his own conviction of aggravated sexual battery of a minor. now the secret is out. >> he thinks he's hard. he got exposed. he's a child molester. the whole time he's been in here picking on people about messing with kids and the whole time he's a child molester the whole time, you know. >> brian is in lacey's former housing unit. he and lacey have mutual friends and acquaintances on the streets. he recently spoke to some. >> people spread rumors. people talk [ bleep ]. so i don't want to feed into that, but once, you know, i started hearing it from his friends. that's when i was like, oh [ bleep ]. it's got to be true. people don't just make that up.
10:37 pm
>> liars. i heard he was [ bleep ] a little kid, man. i'm sweating just thinking about that [ bleep ]. that pisses me off, man. >> andrew celled with lacey and the two had gotten into a fight shortly before lacey's transfer. >> i'm in a cell with this mother [ bleep ]. i'm walking around in my boxers and [ bleep ]. you know what i'm saying? no. hell no. >> jail staff discovered his true charges were known to other inmates at the same time we did, and that raised serious concerns about lacey's safety. >> it's quite possible inmates could take it upon themselves to serve justice. assault lacey. take out their aggressions on him because they don't like that type of crime. i felt it was my responsibility to let classification known for inmate lacey's safety. >> i was upstairs. apparently they told the crew that inmate jonathan lacey is here for child molestation, and
10:38 pm
not only do they know, but the inmates in north four know. >> what's the name again? >> inmate lacey. >> i guess we might have to do something else with him. >> yeah. >> i wonder where they got that information from. >> there's several people inside and outside, i guess, that know about him. >> all right. we'll find some place else for him. >> thanks for the info. >> you're welcome. >> since everybody knows about his charges, now his safety is in jeopardy. he may not realize that fully. >> so lacey will now be moved to administrative segregation for his own protection. the restrictions are not as severe as disciplinary segregation. but he'll still be housed in a small one-man cell all but three hours a week. >> when he gets out there's a lot of people angry. >> somebody that's already saying when john get out we're going to [ bleep ] him up just because. he's got kids.
10:39 pm
you know what i'm saying? they can't be cool with [ bleep ] like that. coming up -- >> he's charged with making a false statement, tattooing himself, and possession of contraband. >> a new tattoo gets matthew bryan in trouble with jail, his mother. >> he's trying to prove himself to other people in here. it's just stupid. >> and even with christopher russell. >> there's another dude in here that claims to be a skinhead. which is totally -- he's totally a counterfeit. if you have moderate to severe

about what happened or the possession of contraband? >> it wasn't mine. it was ours. >> mine and the other dude on the block's. when it was found, it wasn't found in my possession. it was not found in my cell. it was found in the day room. >> you said the contraband wasn't yours, it was ours. so you're acknowledging you had some ownership of this item. yes? >> i was aware of it, yes. so yeah, i was. >> and from the pictures, is that a swastika? >> it was. the thing of it was, it's not like that. there's a dude on the block was going to get one, too. that was the bet. >> anything else? >> i don't want to do any time. i haven't been in trouble. >> i did review your file. this is the first time you've gotten into trouble since you've been here. you were charged with making a false statement. you pled guilty. i did find you guilty. the report indicates you weren't officially forthcoming and you
10:46 pm
did acknowledge when you were presented with the evidence. i gave you ten days for that charge in d.s. you're charged with tattooing yourself. you pled guilty. i found you guilty. i've given you five days d.s. for that charge. i did find you guilty for the charge of contraband. i gave you seven days d.s. for that charge. i suspended four days d.s. you'll do a total of eight days d.s. i did take into consideration you hadn't been into any trouble. but again, you've been here long enough to have read the inmate handbook. you're aware of rules and regulations. these are things you can't do. when you're confronted with during the course of investigation and asked did you do this or is this item yours, you're expected to be forthcoming and acknowledge that. and you said you were trying not to get into trouble. you initially lied and were not honest. if he had been forthcoming and hadn't lied initially the tattooing oneself and the possession of contraband are minor charges. he could have lost gym or visiting.
10:47 pm
he wouldn't have faced any d.s. time at all. it was the lying that got him. review page 35 of the inmate handbook to tell you what you can and cannot having during d.s. if the inmate is not forthcoming, it makes our job harder. we're looking for everybody to be truthful and obey the rules and regulations of the jail. if they don't do that or when they break the rules, there's a penalty for it. >> being stuck in here all day, that sucks. it was definitely not worth it. definitely not worth coming to the hole. >> along with many other hardships of disciplinary segregation, bryan will also lose visitation and phone privileges, meaning he cannot speak to his wife and children. he might miss a scheduled visit later in the day with one of his main sources of support. >> what are you going to tell your mom? i don't know.
10:48 pm
she's going to be mad. >> coming up -- >> i just found out that he got in trouble so we're waiting to see if he gets thrown in the hole, which means i won't be able to talk to him and all that stuff. i'm angry. >> matthew bryan's mother arrives for a visit that may not happen. and -- >> they going to rape him. he's going to be somebody's bitch. >> andrew conteh offers a prediction about his former cellmate, jonathan lacey, and receives big news about his own case. try nexium 24hr, the #1 prescribed acid-blocking brand, and get all day, all night protection. nexium level protection.

10:52 pm
he says he knows he can be more than a criminal. >> my mom used to call me jekyll and hyde. she said i had that personality like i could be at home and watch a newborn baby with a whole month straight with nobody there, clean him, make a bottle. it's crazy. but as soon as i touch the streets i'm a whole different person. i'm scared. honestly, i am. like if i do this time. >> conteh already has a three and a half year sentence for robbery of a residence. he'll serve time in state prison, but is in fairfax county to stand trial for allegedly robbing a pair of venezuelan tourists. but today he caught a break. >> my lawyer just came to see me. he told me the state will not be bringing the victims out for my trial. so they're dismissing the charges next week so i'm gone. gone.

here. never. >> still, lacey kept his charges hidden from other inmates until word from the street trickled into the jail and began to spread. now self-proclaimed skinhead christopher russell who was recently released from segregation says he's gotten word somebody else is misrepresenting himself as well. >> supposedly there's another dude in here that claims to be a skinhead which is totally counterfeit, you know what i'm saying. and there's three black people with him as well. that's not going to go down either, there's too much stuff that doesn't make sense. there's a fresh tattoo that wasn't there to begin with. that's a disgrace. when people are found being counterfeit, like you could have serious things happen. your green light dudes are like that. and first all the tattoos have to come off. one way or another.
10:55 pm
either you get them covered up, or we're going to take them. this isn't a game. a lot of people think this is a game and a lot of people gangs you just join it because it's cool. no, it's not. it's a lifestyle. it's a way of life. you have to be dedicated to your way of life. lying is not being dedicated. >> bryan is safe for now because he's segregated from other inmates. hours earlier he was given eight days in segregation for violations that included tattooing a swastika on his hand. >> here to see matthew bryan. >> and now his mother has just arrived for a prescheduled visit but is being told it could be in jeopardy. >> i found out that he tattooed himself. so we're waiting to see if he gets thrown in the hole later today. which means i won't be able to talk that him and all that stuff. i'm angry.

10:57 pm
>> uh-huh. >> for what? >> put your hand down. >> why? it's fine. >> no. >> mom, really? >> put your hand down. come on, man. dude, you're smarter than that. >> i know. sorry. >> can't you just sit on your butt? this is what happened. they told me you had your hearings. >> they'll give me eight days. i'll get out next sunday. sorry. >> that's not worth it. >> i know. >> matthew has never been racially anything. i don't know where that comes from. he has, you know, a mixed brother and sister. he loves his brother and sister, you know. i don't know if it's an act or if it was a way of fitting in somewhere. but he's not a racist. you have nothing to prove to anybody in here. >> i know. >> you understand? no, really?

10:59 pm
you think about what i'm going to go through. >> i know. sorry. >> if you care about me, you wouldn't do that. >> i'm sorry. my bad. >> he's trying to prove himself to the other people in here. that's just stupid. he doesn't have anything to prove to anybody but me and his kids. and that's truly how i feel. >> all right. i love you. >> i love you, too. bye. >> upsetting my mom is worse than getting eight days in the hole. i don't like to see my mom upset just because she is there for me no matter what. she supports me no matter what decisions i make. if i got life she would still be here every weekend until she died. ♪
