Not surprisingly, given the increasingly high profile that Nevin Shapiro is developing, the Bureau of Prisons is unlikely to send him to a south Florida prison. In addition, given the safety concerns the latest report now puts him in solitary confinement.
Perez said Shapiro is being held at a special housing unit in Tallahassee, in solitary confinement, in part because of the media attention his case and story have generated in recent weeks. Prison officials, Perez said, are erring on a cautious side given Shapiro’s high profile right now.
“It may create a safety concern for him if he is placed in general population,” Perez wrote.
