The procedure that determines where the inmate will do their time is based on several factors. The factors range from the length of the sentence, the type of crime, the number of times the inmate has been incarcerated, the criminal history of the offender, was there violence or weapons involved and several others. This process might take as little as 30 days or up to several months to finalize. Sometimes the delay is simply a lack of bed space. If the offender has some positive aspects and obvious family interaction, they will take the "distance for visitation" as a consideration to where they place them.
