President Trump’s former lawyer will report to prison in just a few short days — May 6 — and serve his three-year sentence alongside some high profile residents in a prison just outside New York City that’s been dubbed the “castle behind bars,” The Daily Beast was first to report. 

Otisville prison was described as a “castle behind bars” by the New York Post and listed as one of the “cushiest” prisons by Forbes Magazine, as the Daily Beast pointed out.

The President’s former fixer will find himself serving time alongside the likes of former “Jersey Shore” star and tax evader Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Billy McFarland, the mastermind behind the Fyre Festival scam.
