Abramoff Scandal
Judge agrees to put Abramoff in Maryland prison

Jack Abramoff isn't in jail yet but when he is sentenced, he will be imprisoned at a medium security facility in Cumberland, Maryland, TPM Muckracker reports.

"Mr. Abramoff�s incarceration there will facilitate the government�s access to him and, therefore, the ongoing investigation," Department of Justice attorneys wrote in a motion granted by U.S. District Judge Paul C. Huck.

Huck is handling Abramoff's bank fraud case in Florida and will impose a sentence in that case. A different judge is handling Abramoff's conspiracy and corruption case in Washington, D.C.
