Federal prisoners hold $100 million in government-run accounts, shielded from some criminal scrutiny and debt collection

Federal prison inmates are keeping large sums of money — in some cases more than $100,000 each — in government-run deposit accounts effectively shielded from court orders for things like child support, alimony or other debts, and not subject to the same scrutiny as accounts owned by non-incarcerated citizens, according to court documents and interviews.

Within the Federal Bureau of Prisons system, which houses roughly 129,000 inmates in facilities throughout the United States, there are more than 20 inmate accounts holding more than $100,000 each for a total exceeding $3 million, a person familiar with the program told The Washington Post. In all, the combined value of such inmate accounts recently topped $100 million, this person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss details of the program that have remained out of public view.

Given the way prisoners are exploited, a hundred grand in one of those accounts probably buys a couple of phone calls and a few MP3s for the music-player on the proprietary can't-take-it-with-you-when-you-leave prison-tablet these days.
