Recently, MTV News spoke to a prison guard employed at Rikers Island about the institution’s release process.
“They have to check his docket number to see that he doesn’t have any open cases or open warrants,” a Rikers Island source told MTV News. ” … He has to be fingerprinted and dressed. It’s another process again before he leaves.”
According to the source, Lil Wayne will begin the exit process around the inmates’ breakfast time, at 4 a.m. The process could take more than two hours, depending on the work and caseload on Thursday at Rikers Island.
As inmates are processed for admittance and exit, the dockets clear and each prisoner is also cleared, allowing groups to be sent on their way.
