Question MDC Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center?

I just seen on the website that my B/F has arrived at MDC Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center. What kind of place is this because he has a federal charge and he is 25 yrs old. Isn't this for Kids under 18 yrs of age. Or could it just be a holding place for now. Does anyone have any info on this place?

If this is your first offense ever and it is federal you should be looking at something called the sentencing guideline. Most federal sentences are given based on criminal history points. Calculate yours and you will see where you fall on that guideline. Hope this helps.
