Saying he wanted to avoid being with former clients from his time as a defense attorney, the Yankton prison was one of two requested by Stenger's defense at his sentencing.  Yankton is a minimum security facility with fewer than 500 inmates. It's a male-only facility. 

Stenger also requested to report to prison after his wife was scheduled to give birth in mid-September to their third child.

Stenger was sentenced in August to 46 months in prison and ordered in pay a $250,000 fine in a pay-to-play scheme.
