DESCRIPTION

The federal prison camp in Pensacola has a great reputation. Others may refer to the federal prison camp in Pensacola as Sofley Field. The prison camp is in the Florida panhandle. Many people serve time in the camp for white-collar crimes that include wire fraud, mail fraud, and healthcare fraud. But as with any place in the Federal Bureau of Prisons, there will also be many drug offenders. Everyone in the camp will be within ten years of release date. For people who have been in other federal prisons, the federal prison camp in Pensacola is known as being a good place to serve a federal prison term. But all reviews are subjective.

User Reviews

  • 1. My name is:An Anonymous Review
  • 2. I arrived on:June of 2017
  • 3. I’m scheduled to leave on:June of 2019
  • 4.My judge sentenced me to serve how many months? 30 months
  • 5. In the past, I’ve been confined at the following institutions:I’ve never been confined before.
  • 6. I was convicted of the following offense:I pleaded guilty to violating securities laws in order to avoid the risk of serving a longer sentence if I were to go to trial.
  • 7. Pros of the facility:It’s still a hard to say that there are any “pros” to a federal prison. Still, I’ve heard stories. When I was arrested I had to spend two days inside the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City. That was awful. I was locked down the entire time that I was there. Part of the reason that I pleaded guilty was that I didn’t want to return to a prison like that again. Compared to MCC New York, the federal prison camp in Pensacola is super easy.
  • 8. Cons of the facility:The “cons” of the facility are simple. I’m in prison. I don’t like being in prison. I miss my wife and children. I’m living with strangers. Most of the people are nice enough, but I don’t know them. And I’m surprised that some of the people serving time here are in a camp. I thought this would be an all white-collar camp. But I was wrong. I would say that white collar guys only make up about 30 percent of the people serving sentences here.
  • 9.Food assessment of the facility:The food is not bad, I guess. I had spaghetti with red sauce last night. It’s not quite like Luigi’s on Mulberry Street. But I had a second portion. We have eggs for breakfast several times a week. There is a chicken once a week. We have cheeseburgers once a weak. It’s easy to put on weight here. I am trying to lose weight, and I expect that I will.
  • 10.Recreational opportunities at the facility:Right now I’m just walking a lot. Soon I’ll start running. Soon! But not yet. We’re near a golf course. We can smell the ocean. It’s okay.
    • 11.Programs available in the facility:I don’t even know what a program is. Everyone talks about programs. I’m just trying to finish this sentence. I don’t think that I want to sit through a class that no one is teaching just so I can learn basic spelling and math.
    • 12.Best jobs in the facility:The best job is sweeping the front patio outside of my door. Three of us have the job. Each of us takes turns. Very therapeutic.
    • 13.Living Quarters in the facility:Compared to MCC New York, our living quarters are exquisite. If that were the comparisons, think the Four Seasons compared to living under the freeway in a tent. Truthfully, I don’t mind. I’ll get through this.
    • 14.How would I assess safety in the facility? :I would say that it’s safer than living outside of prison. There isn’t any traffic. We don’t have any problems.
    • 15.What types of pressure did I feel in the facility?:I’m in prison. My pressure is the challenge that I’m going to face when I go home.
    • 16.What is my general review?:My general review is that the prison is better than I anticipated. I was anticipating something much worse. If I knew it would be this easy, I would have surrendered long ago. I would have saved money from my attorney. I would have pleaded guilty. It would have been better to put this behind me. I was serving a harder sentence when I was home, wondering what this would be like.
    • 17.On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give the facility a rating of:10
