PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The convicted former top prosecutor of Philadelphia has a new home.

Former District Attorney Seth Williams has been moved to the Morgantown Federal Correctional Institute in northern West Virginia.

The minimum security prison is about a five-hour drive from Philly, and houses nearly 1,000 inmates.

Williams spent months in solitary confinement in Philadelphia before heading to a prison transfer facility in Oklahoma last month.

The 50-year-old was sentenced to five years in prison this fall after pleading guilty to a single bribery charge in June.

He is scheduled to be released in November of 2021.
