    Former President Donald Trump would almost certainly have Secret Service agents charged with protecting him even if he winds up in prison. https://sports.yahoo.com/secret-protection-donald-trump-slammer-010915622.html
    Security experts don’t expect Trump would be tossed into the fray with other prisoners. “He would certainly not be part of the general population,” said Ken Gray, a retired FBI special agent who served 24 years in the bureau.
    Exactly where a federally convicted president would land would be at the discretion of a judge, with some input from the Bureau of Prisons, another former Secret Service agent told Insider.
    The Otisville security camp outside of New York City is an example of where some high-profile convicts ask to serve their time. It made a Forbes list of “America’s 10 Cushiest Prisons” in 2009. The famous Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff asked to be sent there, but he was assigned by the Bureau of Prisons to North Carolina instead.
    A bit closer to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, there’s a minimum-security federal prison camp in Pensacola, Florida. That prison also made Forbes’ list of the cushiest locales.
    Trump could conceivably serve time in a minimum-security facility and would be kept separate from other prisoners, said the former agent. “You could almost put him in a separate little hut.”
    But other legal experts expect that authorities would choose to house an imprisoned Trump in a much more secure facility, both for his own protection and the protection of the prison.
    Of particular concern would be Trump’s “martyr status” among some of his most loyal — and potentially dangerous — supporters who might act on grand notions of attacking a prison and freeing Trump, said Mike Lawlor, a criminal justice professor at the University of New Haven and a former undersecretary for criminal justice policy and planning for the state of Connecticut.
