gated
 v.— «Only in rare cases are inmates detained beyond that two-thirds point, even where parole has been denied. In theory, however, Mr. Ferrier’s criminal history could earn him a place in that category, often referred to as being “gated,” which would mean serving his full two-year term.» —“Former sex offender denied parole in threat conviction” by Timothy Appleby Globe and Mail (Toronto, Can.) Feb. 12, 2005.
