The Milan federal prison is a low-security prison for men in Michigan, operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons at 4000 Arkona Rd. in Milan.
Kilpatrick and Ferguson were sentenced directly to jail by U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds in a 1:30 p.m. hearing Monday, following a court session earlier that morning in which a jury found Kilpatrick guilty on 24 of 30 charges and Ferguson guilty of nine of 11 charges.
Kilpatrick and Ferguson are not living among the prison's general population, according to ClickOnDetroit, and have not had any visitors.
As of March 7, there were 1,544 inmates at the facility, which has basketball and tennis courts, horseshoe pits and a softball field.
Kilpatrick has been locked up in the Federal Correctional Institution in Milan before -- he was transferred there in 2010 from the Oaks Correctional Facility near Manistee for easier access to his defense team and research facilities.
Sources told ClickOnDetroit that Kilpatrick and Ferguson have not had any visitors and are not receiving any special attention.
