Man spends 16 years in solitary for a crime he did not commit

It's a good thing that Colorado is changing its policy on solitary because prisons were using solitary as punishment for even minor infractions. Prisoners were routinely sent to solitary confinement (AdSeg) for 10 days or more for violation of one of the prison regulations. These were not violent crimes within the prison, they were for things such as bartering commissary items.
