Following Sam Bankman Fried’s November 2, 2023, guilty jury verdicts,

all eyes are turning toward his March 28, 2024, sentencing.

Likewise, many are wondering where SBF will serve his time in federal prison.

This article discusses the Bureau’s designation policies, likely facility placement,

and what Sam Bankman-Fried’s life will be like in federal prison.

The former FTX CEO has been housed in a cell at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn since a judge revoked his bail in August 2023.

Officials have reportedly started preparing to send former FTX CEO Sam “SBF”

Bankman-Fried from New York to a federal facility in California near his parents’ home.

According to a May 22 Wall Street Journal report,

Bankman-Fried could serve the bulk of his sentence at the Federal Correctional

Institution in Mendota despite his lawyers’ requests to stay in the New York area during his appeal.

In March, a federal judge sentenced SBF to 25 years in prison following his conviction on seven felony counts.

Bankman-Fried has been incarcerated at the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn since a

judge revoked his bail in August 2023, before his case went to trial.

After his sentencing hearing, the former FTX CEO requested to stay at the Brooklyn prison to

“facilitate access to his appellate counsel”

as part of his notice to appeal his conviction and sentence.
