Craig Carton could serve his time with Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino at FCI Otisville

Craig Carton will finally be able to get going with his prison term after he's (probably...) sentenced in early April.

One of the places he could wind up is where Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino currently is -- the minimum-security prison at the Federal Correctional Institution Otisville.

The facility, 70 miles from Manhattan in Orange County, is home to “Jersey Shore” star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Fyre Festival fraudster Billy McFarland and Dean Skelos, the former Republican leader of the state Senate convicted of corruption.

“It’s not fancy. They live in trailers. But there are no walls, no bars,” a lawyer familiar with the facilities told Richard Johnson. “Visiting is very lax and lenient. When the weather is nice, families come up and picnic.”

About half the 110 beds at Otisville go to Jews, who require kosher food and religious services, because the Bureau of Prisons “kind of unofficially designated it to meet the needs of Orthodox Jews,” according to Aleph Institute’s prison outreach director, Rabbi Menachem Katz.

Among Otisville’s alumni is Kenneth Starr, the money manager who defrauded Al Pacino and Sylvester Stallone.

Former State Comptroller Alan Hevesi did his time at Mid-State, another upstate white-collar facility in a Town & Country roundup of frequented spots for when “high fliers need to lie low.” Political consultant Hank Morris, who worked with Hevesi, told reporters that at his upstate facility he walked miles every day, worked out at the gym, read 250 books and wrote a TV show pilot and a screenplay during his two-plus years behind bars.

Carton could also wind up at the FCI, Allenwood in Pennsylvania (75 miles north of Harrisburg); the FCI, Schuylkill (46 miles north of Harrisburg); FCI, McKean (90 miles south of Buffalo and where Wesley Snipes did his time); FCI, Loretto (90 miles East of Pittsburgh); or USP Lewisburg's minimum security satellite camp (62 miles north of Harrisburg).

The Bureau of Prisons has the sole responsibility in determining where Craig Carton will be designated for service of his sentence.

He will be sentenced April 5th.
