American Samizdat

A federal judge on Tuesday denied Skilling's request to remain free on bond pending his appeal.

Skilling, accompanied by his brother, Mark, and wife, Rebecca Carter, arrived at the prison in a silver Jeep Liberty. The group drove past a crowd of media without stopping, and walked into the prison. Skilling's family members emerged a few minutes later and left.

The low-security prison, which sits on the city limits of this town of 8,400 people 75 miles south of Minneapolis, has a low profile in the federal penal system.

Inmates at the prison have access to exercise facilities including a basketball court, running track and a pingpong table. Like most inmates, Skilling is likely to be required to work in prison labor jobs such as food service, plumbing and painting, where he would earn 12 to 40 cents an hour.
