The two facilities are the same, we just don't have enough beds in one to handle all the women in the system. Once an inmate completese the classification testing, they wait while the classification team processes everything and makes a decision. It's more than just "where to put her," it also involves establishing the foundation for any treatment programs, medical issues, custody level, etc.

if she remains at Muncy AND if Muncy allows it, she will go into their TC. If she's sent to CBSP, the same decision will be made there. All women are "ordered" to Muncy because that's he classification facility for women (just as Camp Hill is for men.) The judge's "order" for a TC is not binding on the DOC.
Justice and compassion don't have to be exclusive.
