This Is The Prison Where Michael Cohen Will Spend The Next Three Years

• by Tyler Durdan

Though the Bureau of Prisons has ultimate authority over where Cohen will serve his sentence, Otisville has both minimum security and medium security lockups and is believed to be a space where Cohen would be "safe" from reprisals. Cohen has been ordered to report to prison on March 6 (though he could still manage to have his sentence reduced by offering further cooperation to prosecutors). Data show the BEP complies with roughly three-quarters of recommendations made by prosecutors.

As one of our readers explained in a post published nearly 10 years ago, Otisville is a popular destination for Jewish convicts due to the accessibility to weekly Shabbat Services and a Rabbi, making Otisville unique in the federal prison system. 

In remarks that elicited derision from Trump and his supporters, Cohen said during a statement before his sentencing that he had been living in a "personal and mental incarceration" due to his lies and crimes and that his prison term would - ironically - help him regain his spiritual freedom.
