Conrad Black May Regret Giving Up Canadian Citizenship
If Black is convicted, McNabb said he is more likely to be sent to what is termed a low-security prison, which is not as secure as a medium or high security one, but still has barb wire and is a controlled environment.
It's also a place where Black would mix with people from all walks of life, including white-collar criminals, drug dealers and murderers. Violent offenders often get transferred to low-security prisons from medium-or high-security ones after demonstrating good behaviour.
As a Canadian, Black could have requested a transfer to a Canadian jail if convicted in the United States - and possibly serve a lighter sentence like his former partner and star prosecution witness David Radler is expected to."
Lots more on His Lordship - Conrad Black!!!
