Trump ally Stone won’t need to go to prison quarantine site

WASHINGTON (AP) — Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone will start his prison sentence without needing to comply with a Bureau of Prisons directive that newly-sentenced inmates be sent to a quarantine site. The agency said last week all newly sentenced inmates would be sent to three quarantine sites or federal detention facility. But that won’t be the case for Stone. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Sue Allison tells The Associated Press that Stone will surrender to prison and will not be required to go to a quarantine facility. The move is likely to ignite inquiries from lawmakers and prison advocates who have suggested the agency is loosening its rules for high-profile inmates.
