Kilpatrick and Ferguson are not living among the prison's general population and neither have had any visitors.
There is no word on whether or not they are being held in the same cell, but Local 4 is told they are not being given any special treatment.
A typical day's meal plan includes:
- Breakfast: Fruit, oatmeal, bread, milk and coffee
