TULSA, Oklahoma -

A man serving time in an Oklahoma prison has created a Facebook page and has been posting pictures and rap videos from his cell.

One would assume it's illegal to have a cell phone in prison. And it is. In fact, it's a felony, so if you had one, you'd think you'd try to hide the fact, but one inmate has been letting the whole world know about his life behind bars.

"Juan Pablo" has many pictures of himself on his Facebook page, some dating back to last fall. There are even shots of him with other people in prison. The most recent was uploaded Thursday at 9 a.m.

"Juan Pablo's" Facebook Page

He's even posted shots of him drinking something and posted that he's getting wasted.

His real name is Dwight Holmes and he's living in the Mack Alford Correctional Center in Stringtown, Oklahoma, a medium security prison.

Records show he has convictions in Tulsa and Ottawa Counties for burglary, possession of marijuana and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

We called the Department of Corrections.

"Based on the information you gave us, we notified the facility and they're in the process of searching his cell and shaking him down," said Jerry Massie, of the DOC.

They're also looking at another guy, who's holding a cell phone in one of the pictures.

DOC says cell phones rank right up there with tobacco and drugs as the most popular items smuggled into prisons.

Holmes mentions in a Facebook status that he's supposed to get out at the end of this Month. But this may change that.

"He can be placed in a disciplinary unit, not get earned credits, or even be transferred to a higher security facility like the Oklahoma State Penitentiary," Massie said.

In addition to the internal punishment, he could also be charged with a felony.

They say, even if he flushes the phone or hides it so well they can't find it, they can prove he was using an electronic device to access a social media site, which is also a violation.

Fighting cell phones inside prisons is a problem all over the country.

"Our warden joined several others in the country to ask the FCC if we could do jamming of cell phones in certain locations. They have the technology, but, so far, it's not approved, because it could jam other cell phones in that area," Massie said.

We messaged "Juan Pablo" on his Facebook page, as well as several of his friends and family, but none of them responded to our request for an interview.

The DOC told us Thursday afternoon they did find the phone in Homles' cell, and he is being transferred to the maximum security Oklahoma State Penitentiary.
