May 7, 2015- The City & State blog reports, “All Americans are innocent until proven guilty.

“There is a fairly good chance they would end up at the same facility,” said Jennifer Rodgers, executive director of the Center for the Advancement of Public Integrity at Columbia University. “There are a limited number of federal prisons in the tri-state area, and the [Bureau of Prisons] tries to honor defendants’ requests to be housed near their families.””
