Michael Cohen , 53, is due to report Monday to the Federal Correctional Institution , Otisville to start a three-year sentence for tax evasion, lying to Congress and campaign finance crimes.
Tucked in the lush countryside south of the Catskill Mountains , Otisville is actually two federal facilities with a total of about 800 inmates: a medium-security prison where former NFL star Darren Sharper is serving a 20-year rape sentence, and a satellite camp for non-violent offenders like Cohen.
Alums include accountant Kenneth Starr , who was accused of bilking celebrities like Uma Thurman with bad investments, and former Cendant chairman Walter Forbes and ex- Connecticut Gov. John Rowland .
Add in recreational amenities like tennis courts, horseshoes and cardio equipment, and it sounds like the closest thing the federal prison system has to sleepaway camp.
Cohen could also be a target of bullying, harassment or worse for his cooperation with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and other probes, and that could make him a candidate for the prison's protective housing unit, said Donson.
Factor in the camp's design — off a secluded two-lane road, without much fencing or security — and Cohen could find himself easily harassed by paparazzi or ambushed by someone looking to do harm, said Donson.
Cameron Lindsay , a retired warden who oversaw Otisville as deputy regional director of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons , said he would 'think long and hard about placing Cohen in a general population, at least in the beginning,' given the 'intense media coverage and extreme type of support the president receives from some of his supporters.'
Otisville , within 35 miles (56 kilometers) of the Orthodox Jewish communities of Kiryas Joel and Monsey , is 'definitely sought out by Jewish offenders,' said Matthew Perry , executive director of Jewish Prisoner Services International .
'It really makes a difference if you're Jewish because a lot of guys want to say certain prayers you can only say with 10 Jewish men,' said Lawrence Dressler , a former Otisville prisoner who served 18 months for mortgage fraud, referring to the Jewish quorum known as a minyan.
