Quietly Ron is taken off to jail (6)

I believe the answer is:

prison

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'to jail' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'quietly ron is taken' is the wordplay.
'quietly' becomes 'p' (p for piano and quiet).
'taken' is an insertion indicator.
'ron' enclosing 'is' is 'rison'.
'p'+'rison'='PRISON'

'off' is the link.
This may not be right. It may belong to another bit of the clue.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for prison that I've seen before include "Cooler" , "Penitentiary" , "Place of incarceration" , "Slammer" , "punishment" .)
