Michael Cohen is headed to prison today to begin a three-year prison stint for crimes related to the hush money payment he arranged for President Trump.

While he made be headed to one of the cushiest prisons in the country, it won’t be a picnic for the former lawyer and fixer for the president. Upon arrival, Cohen will receive a medical and mental health screening, according to the Associated Press. He will then be assigned a prison job, which could be anything from mowing the lawn to cleaning up the prison’s visitor center. Cohen will also receive his own jumpsuit, bedding for his barrack-style bunkbed and towels, AP reported.

He’ll be doing time with some big names, as TPM reported, and will be allowed time to participate in recreational activities like tennis, horseshoes and bocce ball.
