Manafort Moved from Wayne County Federal Prison

CANAAN TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- It was a short stay for Paul Manafort at the federal prison in Wayne County.

President Trump's former campaign chair, now a federal felon, had been serving his sentence at USP Canaan near Waymart.

Now the Bureau of Prisons lists Manafort at a federal penitentiary in Western Pennsylvania.

Manafort was convicted of bank and tax fraud and is expected to serve more than five years before he is released.

    The difference between a Federal prison and a prison for your ave felon is that they dress you better in federal prison. I bet the food is better too. Normal criminals only get potatoes I hear. I hope I spelt patotoes correctly.

      The lower security prisons have more freedoms and benefits for prisoners who earn it by good behavior.
