Ex-top firm trader having to get used to prison routine

Stopwatch

Jesse Litvak, federal inmate No. 21467-014, is learning the weekday routine.

Bloomberg News reports:

Lights on: 4:45 a.m.

Breakfast: 5 a.m. to 6 a.m.

Mail call: 5:30 p.m. through 8:30 p.m.

Lights out: 10:30 p.m.

On Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, brunch is served after the 10 a.m. prisoner count, according to the prison’s orientation guide.

So it goes at the Federal Prison Camp, Pensacola - where Litvak, the former managing director at Jefferies & Co., started serving his two-year sentence this week for lying to clients.

As prisons go, it isn’t bad bad. Perched near the Gulf of Mexico, FPC Pensacola is considered one of the cushier federal pens - a classic “Club Fed." Forbes rated the facility second in a list of "America’s 10 Cushiest Prisons" in 2009.
