    Your already ruined credit will be much worse and the creditor could sue you and you'll still owe once you get out.

    They go to collection etc. eventually wreck his/her credit.

    The go into default and he gets sued for them if they are large enough, and then owes them when he gets out.

    The debts will be sent to collection, and their credit history will be shot for a long while. 

    The creditors can apply to the court to freeze the clock on the debts (SOL, reporting history, etc.) until they are released.

    Depending on how long he's in for, they'll go to collections. They will treat them just as if he was not in prison.
