Access (4) Prisoners' Access to the Web

To me, the immediate answer is It depends.  It depends on the nature of their crime and of course the subsequent punishment.  It also depends, I imagine, on time served and behavioral progress.  Prisoners in general are carefully guarded on what they communicate and what information they access, especially with the world outside prison.  Perhaps the law or regulation governing prisoners needs to be reviewed vis-a-vis the radical developments in media and technology, information and communications over the last decade or two.
