Madoff looks to lock in comfort zone

Bernie Madoff has 150 years’ imprisonment lined up. However, despite having his freedom taken away, Madoff is keen to influence one last decision. It is up to the Bureau of Prisons to pick out an appropriate facility for the fraudster but Madoff has hired a prison consultant, Herb Hoelter, to help him find a suitable place.

Apparently Madoff’s first choice was Otisville Correctional Institute but this choice was rejected by the judge – Madoff doesn’t qualify for the plush facilities that other white-collar criminals enjoy. However, many other relatively comfortable centres remain on the list of potential future homes.

As discussions continue, there is still a distinct possibility that Bernie will spend his remaining days telling younger con men the tricks of his trade in a relatively cushy institute at the taxpayers expense.
