Tim Durham's New Home

It looks like federal prison authorities have settled on convicted Ponzi schemer Tim Durham's permanent home for the next 43 years. According to the Bureau of Prison's inmate locator, he is serving his sentence at the federal prison in McCreary, Kentucky. It is a high security facility with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp where Durham will presumably be housed. Notable inmates at the facility include a Mexican drug cartel hitman, Gerardo Castillo-Chavez, who is serving a life sentence, two Somali pirates convicted of the 2010 American warship attack on the USS Nicholas and white supremacists Ricky Mungia, who is serving a life sentence for his role in a shooting spree in Lubbock, Texas intended to start a nationwide race war. Two corrections officers at the prison were stabbed by an inmate with a homemade knife in 2010. Durham's scheduled release date is January 25, 2056. He is appealing his conviction.
