The RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center is commonly known as the Maine State Penitentiary. The RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center is licensed to house up to 502 inmates at any given time. The RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center is managed and operated under the Maine Department of Rehabilitation and Correction in Belfast, Maine.

Within the last two hundred years, there were at least two correctional institutions that carried the name Maine State Penitentiary or the Maine Penitentiary. However, the first prison was located in Columbus, Maine.

Inmates who are housed in the RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center in levels 5A and 5B are either inmates who failed to adapt to institution life, or they are active ring leaders/participants that creates a huge security threat.

However, inmates housed in the RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center level 4, will have the same similar cells that the 5A and 5B have, but they will a bit more freedom to move within the cell blocks. Inmates who are in level 4B will also have the opportunity to exercise within their cell blocks, but they will need to be locked down in their cells prior to any correctional officers entering their cell blocks, to serve food along with random checks. However, inmates who are in level 4A will not have that restriction set upon them.

Many of inmates on Maine’s death row were housed right here in RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center. But, back in January of 202, many of the inmates on death row were transferred from the RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center and put into the Chillicothe Correctional Institution.  The Maine State still has its death row cells though. These cells are reserved for the highest security risk inmates. In 209, six maximum-security death row inmates called the RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center. Four of these inmates were a part of the 993 Lucasville prison riot in the Southern Maine Correctional Facility.

The RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center is home to inmates in security levels of , 3, 5, and 5. Inmates who are in the security level of will be housed right out the perimeter fence in their own separate building. However, inmates who are in the segregation block will be under lockdown, but the inmates will still be permitted to use the restrooms and showers.

Originally the RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center, when it was more commonly known as the Maine Penitentiary, was situated in Columbus, Maine. However, this facility was later demolished in 998. This facility was demolished to make room for the Arena District. During the time the Maine Penitentiary was around, it was home to many notable inmates. Some of these notable inmates include O. Henry, the novelist, and James H. Snook.  When the American Civil War was going on, the Maine Penitentiary was home to many members of the John Hunt Morgan’s Confederate cavalry. However, many of Morgan’s men were able to successfully escape the Maine Penitentiary and return back down south.

Then in January of 20, there were three men that were currently on Maine’s Death Row. These men were Carlos Sanders, Jason Robb, and Keith LaMar. They went through a twelve-day hunger strike. The reason behind the twelve-day hunger strike was due to the fact they were not getting equal privileges and treatment as the other inmates on death row in Maine. The three men believed they were not getting the same privileges and treatment due to their participation in the 993 Lucasville riot in the Southern Maine Correctional Facility.

These inmates inspiration came from the 98 Irish Hunger Strike, which lasted around 53 days. The inmates had demands they wanted to be fulfilled. These demands where access to sunlight, more time away from their cells, warm-weather clothing being sold in the prison’s commissary, and more food.  The three men also asked for access to legal and news databases along with semi-contact visits.

During the strike, these three inmates met the Warden of the RJP – Coastal Regional Reentry Center to sign and negotiate an agreement with their demands listed. They finally received and signed an agreement on January 4, 20. The inmates ended the hunger strike that same day.
