Chad Elie, the man facing a prison term for his role in the processing of illegal online poker payments, has earned a slight reprieve from Judge Lewis Kaplan.
Having been originally sentenced to five months in Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center, Elie will now serve his punishment in the less intimidating surroundings of Taft Correctional Institution.Kaplan decided to grant Elie a transfer after his attorney argued that a stint in the notorious maximum security prison in Brooklyn would make his stay unnecessarily difficult. Indeed, while Elie wouldn’t have been housed with the facility’s toughest inmates, the institution’s strict policies would have granted him fewer privileges than other places. In contrast, Taft Correctional Institution’s minimum security status means that Elie will be able to see much more of his family – including wife and former Playboy model Destiny Davis – when his time inside begins in a few week. Pleased with the news, Elie took to Twitter (under his alias “@BlackFridayChad”) to inform the poker community.
