On Monday, former President Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen checks in to the federal prison in Otisville, NY — where he can enjoy bocce ball and tennis with fellow inmates “The Situation,” Fyre Festival fraudster Billy McFarland, and former state Senate leader Dean Skelos.
Cohen, 53, will step inside the medium-security Federal Correctional Facility Otisville, in the Catskills about 70 miles from Manhattan, to begin a three-year sentence for tax evasion, lying to Congress and campaign finance.
He’ll sleep in a bunk bed inside a barracks-like hall holding about 115 other inmates, the Associated Press reported.
He’ll be assigned a locker for his personal belongings, and will have access to washers and dryers, a microwave, and an ice machine.
Amenities include tennis courts, horseshoes and cardio equipment. About half the beds go to Jews who, like Cohen, require kosher food and Shabbat services.
It’s no wonder Bernie Madoff asked, unsuccessfully, to be placed there — or that Forbes once ranked Otisville as one of “America’s 10 Cushiest Prisons.”
