Different kinds of prison time!
Who you know,
is where you go! ?
When most ordinary people break the law, and are convicted,
and sentenced to a state or federal prison, they have visions
of guard towers with armed guards, chain link fencing, and
barb wire encircled at the top of the fencing.
Being locked in a cell continually except for work
assignments or exercise for a few hours a day.
Up to a few hours one day a week to visit a family
member while under the watchful eyes
of the prison guards.
But what happens when you are not an ordinary person?
What happens when you are an ex Senator from the
State of Arkansas, and have friends in all the right
places, and are sentenced to a federal prison?
You soon find out, not all federal
prisons are created equal..
If you will follow me on this, you will see how ex
Senator Nick Wilson has been planning his own
outcome right up to the day he was sentenced for
two counts of tax evasion, and one count of conspiracy.
Now keep in mind. What he asked for, and
was granted by the Judge, and the Prosecutors.
Was to be able to spend his time at the Federal lockup
at Eglin Air Force Base Prison Camp in Pensacola Florida,
because he has family members that might be relocating near there.
Along with his wife and 11 year old son."OKAY"
Now if you add this to the 129 public corruption
charges he is still facing in the near future, and
if convicted and sentenced to more time.
Guess where that added time will be spent?
So now we have to wonder why an ex Senator who
has spent most of his career "supposedly" helping
the citizens of Arkansas and apparently himself,
would want to spend his prison time in Florida?
Well it seems like what everyone is trying
to keep out of the news. Is that the prison
camp at Eglin Air Force Base is not
what most people would think of when
they think of a Federal Prison!
You see, according to Jody Upton the
Public Information Director at the Southeast
Offices of the Federal Bureau of Prisons in
Atlanta GA. says. This prison holds primarily
A minimum security facility!
Check this out..
There are no walls or barbed-wire fences.
No roving guards peering down from towers.
"Now for the good part"
Inmates or eligible for furloughs!
Some lasting as long as 7 days,
for special circumstances such as funerals,
are to strengthen family ties.
Do you think with Nick Wilson having a wife and
an 11 year old son moving to the area that he
might need quite a few furloughs
"to strengthen family ties?"
Why didn't the judge and the prosecutors just
decide to save the tax payers some money,
and sentence him to house arrest?
With the stipulation of course that he could
leave his house on 7 day furloughs
whenever deemed necessary for things
like, strengthening his ties with
State and Federal Judges, Prosecutors,
and other Arkansas Government officials
who will bend the rules for one of there own,
while ignoring the needs of the citizens
of this fine state.
One other thing overlooked by the news media.
All that was said in the articles I read was
how some of Nick Wilson's family members
might be relocating to the area including
his wife and son.
How close could they possibly get to Eglin Air Force Base?
After what you have already read, this should be no surprise.
