Going to Prison due to Fraud is like any other conviction, there are no special privileges because the crime is ‘less serious or nonviolent’ or because it’s a ‘white collar crime’. The ‘Fraud Prison’ is the same HMP Prison that you would go to if it was a drug related crime or assault conviction etc.
There are many types of Prison in the UK and depending on where you are sentenced for the Fraud at court will depend on which prison you end up in. As an overview, you will go to the ‘Local Prison’ to where the court is situated. If this is not near where you live, you can request a prison transfer, but do not expect this process to be quick. Like with everything in prison, it goes at a snails pace.
The Prison you end up in, also depends on what category you’ve been given as a prisoner, for example, most serious male prisoners will be given a category A rating. Category B Prisoners: “Those who do not require maximum security, but for whom escape needs to be made very difficult like”. Category C Prisoners are “Those who cannot be trusted in open conditions but who are unlikely to try to escape” and Finally Category D Prisoners: “Those who can be reasonably trusted not to try to escape, and are given the privilege of an open prison.”
If the Fraud is literally just money orientated then you should be able to progress through the category ranks pretty quickly but due to the waiting list for Category D prisons it can take upto 6 months to get transferred to an Open Cat D Prison.
