  • Southern California white collar prison?

    Is there a "white collar" prison around LA? Not a hard core max security prison, but one that's more of a minimum security situation where white collar criminals (tax fraud as opposed to murder or armed robbery) would be sent.

    Also, what kind of court in LA would a white collar criminal receive their sentencing? The crime would have been committed in LA.

    Thanks in advance.

    First question that comes to mind: State or federal?

    Anyway, as you wait for someone who may have first-hand knowledge, try googling: low security prisons in california. There's a fed facility in Lompoc.

      Husband is a prison guard. He says no. The federal prison downtown used to be a "club fed" type place, but that's changed. He says there's a prison like that in North Carolina, but not Southern California. If you're a white collar criminal in this town, the system treats you like everyone else, although big celebrities usually get put in protective custody for the duration of their stay.

        To divert this thread slightly, how are cops treated in prison? Are they also isolated like celebs, or are they thrown into gen pop?

          Thanks for the information. For a felony case involving fraud, where might the sentencing be held in LA? And could it be handled via judge and not jury? Thanks again.

            Federal or state?

              Victorville is federal medium security. CI Taft is a privately-run federal minimum security prison up in Bakersfield. Those look to be the two closest to Los Angeles

                Taft, maybe. Husband doesn't know anything about Taft. But Victorville - no way. That place is definitely not a cushy white collar prison.

                  FWIW, Kiefer Sutherland did his jail time for a DUI at the Glendale City Jail. It's nicer, safer, and less crowded than the Men's Central Jail in downtown LA. I'm guessing this is why celebrities request to do their time there. Actor Gary Collins was doing time for DUI at this time also.

                  He was granted a request to serve his time in suburban Glendale's city jail rather than in the overcrowded downtown Los Angeles County jail. The trade-off was that he could not shave any time off his sentence for good behavior or early release because of overcrowding.
                  The star of Fox television's "24" also had a cell to himself and ate alone, he said.

                      Apparently, there's a courthouse, with one judge, on Catalina Island. Who knew?

                      HOURS OF OPERATION
                      The courthouse is open from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, every other Friday from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
