My friend has been at a detention center run by CCA and now GEO for 9 months. He will be there until sentencing and then transfer to a federal facility after that.

If I could jump in here with my own question...? Is it pretty standard that you would always be sent to a holding facility? I just assumed you were sentenced and shipped where you are going? I guess I have alot to learn....

My husband was housed at a county jail utilized by the feds before he was transferred to his final destination

It really depends on where you are and where you are going. When I was sentenced for a violation of my supervised release the US Marshalls put me in a local county jail before I was transferred to BOP. I went straight to my destination because it was close by. (In fact, I was transferred from the Marshall's van to the BOP bus on the airport tarmac with Con-Air in front of me.)

If someone were being transferred far away they would probably get a trip to a holding facility.

My friend was in the County jail for 5 months after violating his pre-trial release agreement, now he is in a CCA, federal holding facility. I think he had it better in County. He has been in Segregation and lockdown since he got there 3 weeks ago. What is the usual length of stay at the holding facilities before they move them to their designated facility?

It depends on the situation. If he is currently in a facility contracted by the feds, such as the county jail, and his designated facility is close, they will bus him straight to his designation. Otherwise, he will get "processed" at one of the federal transfer centers, such as Oklahoma, and then get shipped by plane or bus to his designated facility.

It's more about relieving the pressure from the county jails than anything else. It opens jail space at the county jail, and allows time for the designated facility to create bed space.

He thought he might go to OKC next to the transfer center. Does that mean that he won't be designated at Leavenworth USP? I was hoping that he would just move over there after being at the CCA, but for some reason when he moved from County he thought he might go to OKC after being at CCA Leavenworth for about 2 months. If they move him to OKC and then bus him or fly him somewhere else that will mean it is going to be farther away than we hoped.

Has he been sentenced yet? If not then he has not been designated. If yes, then they are in the process of designating him, or waiting to transport him, and he won't know where until after they tell him to bunk and junk and the Marshals have him cuffed.

The transfer centers like OKC only kick in after BOP designation. Where he is locked up prior to that has no relevance on where he is designated, only on how he will be transported there.

He was sentenced on September 8. He was already in the County jail at that time.

Another one of the guys who worked at my old company who refused to co-operate (he ran) has been in Brooklyn MDC since January and is being sentenced this week. I've heard a lot about it through him if you want to know anything.

Papi is being held at Atlanta City Detention Center (ACDC) awaiting federal trial, which is currently scheduled for March. It is my understanding that he will be held there until trial and sentencing are over. I've heard that even after sentencing, it can take a while to be transferred to prison.

What if you have a friend arrested for a federal crime and your not sure where he is. How can you find him or can you?

Should be able to go to the bop site & use inmate locator. If he's not being moved right now it'll tell you. If it says he's in transit he is in the moving process.

My love was held in a county jail almost a year, then went into transit. The Feds lease bed space all over the country in county jails and privately ran prisons.

If you know the location where he was arrested/charged, you could call the U.S. Marshals' office in that location and ask them where they house their pre-trial detainees. It could be a federal detention center or could be a county jail that contracts with the U.S. Marshals.
