A federal judge has agreed to recommend that wealthy Gulf Coast attorney Paul Minor be sent to a minimum-security prison in Florida to serve time for a judicial bribery conviction.

But it’s not clear whether the U.S. Bureau of Prisons will grant the request.

The prison Minor wants to go is in the Florida Panhandle. It has dormitory housing, little or no perimeter fencing and a low staff-to-inmate ratio, said Mike Truman, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons. It houses some 678 inmates.
