A quick update on the whereabouts of the VRS Fraud inmates since there have been movement on their locations.
Larry Berke has transferred from Tucson FCI over to CCM Phoenix. This is interesting since if you recall his lawsuit prior to being incarcerated. BOP Tucson FCI had all the necessary accessibility accommodations needed for Mr. Berke’s stay due to the presence of another deaf inmate who is serving a life sentence. CCM Phoenix is a contract “halfway house.”
Benjamin Pena is still at the La Tuna FCI in Anthony, Texas. As an aside, one wonders why he was originally assigned to an Oklahoma prison then reassigned to a Texas prison, when his former residence was near Phoenix, Arizona. Would that make Tucson FCI a more logical choice with all the accessibility accommodations made for that other deaf lifer and is closer to his original residence?
John Yeh and Joseph Yeh are still incarcerated at Schuykill FCI in Pennsylvania.
